Our Mission

The mission of the Latino Ministries team of the Palisades Presbytery (LMT) is to provide support and connection among Hispanic-Latino churches by facilitating events and resources to help congregations and missions in their spiritual and community growth, strengthening our unity in the body of Christ.

Our Goals

• To advice and support the English speaking churches in their ministries among the Latino population, and to make connections with the organizations serving and supporting the Hispanic-Latino community in our area.
• To encourage and empower the established Latino churches, lay leaders, ruling elders  and teaching elders to be more involved in the institutional life of the Presbytery of the Palisades and in the Presbyterian church at large.
