Synod of South Atlantic

Synod of South Atlantic Map

The Hispanic/Latino Council of the Synod of South Atlantic is organized into three chapters, each with its own coordinating committee. They share a focus on spiritual and leadership development and a vision to start new worshiping communities.

In the Central Chapter, El Redentor Presbyterian Church in Oviedo, Florida, celebrating 33 years of mission work, joined with Seminole County Schools to address child hunger. They prepared 1,500 pounds of food in 80 bags for the children in one month.

The North Chapter organized a spiritual retreat for ministers, lay leaders, and spouses. At this inspiring event, participants took turns sharing how God is working in their ministries as newcomers and immigrant brothers and sisters arrive. One of these ministries, El Nazareno new church development (NCD) in Hapeville, Georgia, hopes to become a chartered PC(USA) congregation soon.

The South Chapter is excited about the Grace Point NCD, a multicultural congregation that started in Miami Shores, Florida, in 2012. A lively worship service and an inspiring sermon draw a group of 60 participants, who share the message of Jesus Christ with neighbors who have not yet heard.

The Synod of South Atlantic has 16 presbyteries and is home to 908 congregations.

—Rev. Adrian Orozco, Hispanic consultant to the Synod of South Atlantic, and Kerri Nichols, synod administrator
