Center for Latina/o Church Studies

CLCS2Since Fall 2001 Brite Divinity School has sponsored the Center for Latina/o Church Studies. The Center and its Director aid in recruitment of Latina/o students at Brite; coordinate programs for the Divinity School and community such as the Lecture Series; sponsor continuing education seminars and workshops for Latina/o pastors, including the annual Hispanic Summer Program; and network with Latina/o pastors in the community, including licensed ministers. The programs and services are provided to Hispanic pastors and theological students regardless of their denominational heritage. There is a close working relationship with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Anglo and Hispanic, at the local, regional and national levels.
