Abstract

The author reports descriptive data gathered through surveys collected by mail and when speaking to Hispanic groups around North America. In addition, personal interviews with those who have left the church provided additional data and insights. Hispanic Americans face a challenge with second and third generation Hispanic Americans due to the changes that take place as they assimilate into their new culture while their churches continue to attract new immigrants. Hispanic churches in North America tend to retain immigrants and lose their second and third generation young people. The data doesn’t indicate whether those who leave the Hispanic churches transition to English speaking Adventist churches or if they stop attending Adventist churches altogether.
