The Hispanic Christian Academy (HCA), part of United's Center for Hispanic/Latino Ministries, is designed to impact the local church by equipping and training Hispanic leaders to serve as pastors, church planters, evangelists, missionaries and other roles of ministry. It is a three-year Course of Ministry program taught online in Spanish. The basic curriculum includes: Bible, Theology, Church and Mission and Ministry.
HCA intends to:
Educate church leaders in foundational knowledge and practical training for ministry.
Equip and train leaders to manage and use appropriately and productively the Word of God, whether in preaching, teaching, ministering or counseling.
Encourage personal spiritual growth of leaders to mature in Christ.
Train leaders to equip and train others for the service of the ministry.
Encourage leaders to high standards of integrity.
The Hispanic Christian Academy has partnerships with United Methodist Annual Conferences to offer the HCA in their regions. Below is the list of current Conferences and their contacts:
