This webinar will focus on facts and implications of the startling Hispanic Realities that are transforming the social, political, economic, and religious life of America today. The first reality deals with the explosive growth of the Hispanic population which has exceeded even the boldest projections of demographic experts.

Atlanta, for example, had less than 25,000 Hispanics in 1970 but now has over a third significant reality is the unprecedented response of Hispanics to the evangelical message.
