Prepare for ministry grounded in Latino/a experiences

Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program (HTMP)

Established in 1982, the Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program (HTMP) provides theological education that is historically, culturally, pastorally, and theologically situated in Latin@ contexts. Through academic degrees, concentrations, certificates, and Latin@-themed courses, HTMP prepares students for theological study, ministry, and leadership in a church that is increasingly Latino/a in the USA. Through Latinx faculty, lectures, public events, and special programming, HTMP resources the greater community in pastoral ministry and theology done latinamente.
