The NHCLC has partnered with United in Purpose to launch a historic National Hispanic Evangelical Voter Registration Campaign, FUERZA 2011. Via our local churches, we can register Hispanics to vote in support of biblical values and change our nation for the Glory of Christ through three methods: the local church, on the Internet, and through text messaging.
The National Hispanic Adoption Campaign seeks to counter the Abortion issue in new and innovative ways.
The National Hispanic Healthy Families Campaign seeks to enhance the God ordained institution of marriage as defined in scripture with innovative ideas. The NHCLC believes that in order to empower and enrich the Hispanic American family, we must address the issues that weaken and attack this sacred covenant. We must and we will lead our nation in a decrease of divorces which threatens the fiber of our communities. We will partner with ministries and agencies that will lead an all out offensive to rescue struggling marriages, strengthen healthy marriages, and use our heritage and values to regain the emphasis of the family unit. In addition, our Healthy Families Campaign will address the proliferation of pornography and it's negative impact on aspects of our community. Finally we will continue to work for homes where both mothers and fathers stay engaged in the lives of children in order to build a firewall against negative social behavior and activity.
The NHCLC stands as intercessors and a firewall to reverse an epidemic experienced by Latino families for several generations. We believe that when a Latino teen drops out of High School he/she is set-up for a life of disappointments and the inability to experience completion in their life. We partner with organizations and government programs to fully place our efforts in seeing the dropout rate diminish and for more Latinos to go on to college and fulfill their God given potential.
The Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals, The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, stands recognized as the leading faith organization in both articulation and advocacy of a solution to the current immigration crisis from a biblical worldview. In partnership with organizations ranging from Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform to America's Voice, National Association of Evangelicals, Congress of Racial Equality and Freedom Federation; the NHCLC seeks a solution that reconciles the rule of law with our Judeo Christian heritage. Without a doubt, the current reality continues to leave our borders unsecured, polarizes our communities and serves as a facilitative platform for racial profiling and other activities non reflective of America's ethos. Accordingly, permit us to present a number of understandings and a subsequent solution to America's immigration dilemma.
The NHCLC leads the Hispanic church in the understanding that one of our purposes on earth has been stipulated to us since the dawning of creation. God created all things, and when He was done who placed humanity here with the distinct task to be His stewards over creation. We do not enter into this endeavor for political positioning nor some sort of populist position but because of the mandate God left us. The NHCLC is presently partnering with organizations with like-minded regard for our protection and stewardship over God’s creation.
The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference joined First Lady Michelle Obama in support of the "Let's Move! Faith and Communities Initiative". The Initiative, which focuses on addressing health and wellness issues via engagement in exercise and healthy dieting, includes the engagement of community and faith organizations.
The sole purpose of the Rescate Project is to reach young people and their families with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We do that by meeting a basic need – making sure children have a backpack before school starts. Each year millions of families have to prepare their kids for school. One of the most expensive necessities for a school year is a backpack to transport books, papers, and supplies to and from school. The Rescate Project gives pastors and churches an opportunity, a plan, and a tool to reach the families and children in the neighborhoods that surround their church. The idea behind the Rescate Project is to provide a child with a solid, sturdy backpack for school, filled with the supplies they will need, and also includes a Gospel message booklet in the backpack. This is a great project for any church to take on! It is a turn-key project that will have tremendous impact and allow you to touch the families and children in need in your neighborhood!
