- ABOUT US
As we process a specific phase of racial reconciliation brought on by recent events in our country, I would like to offer a personal perspective on cultural and ethnic elements that relate to my own associational ministry work with the Hispanic population in Denton County. I offer this perspective in broad strokes with the hope that it stimulates further analysis and dialogue as we strive to reach all population groups with the gospel.
U.S. census data had the Hispanic population in Denton County hovering around 160,000 when I first began my ministry assignment a little over four years ago. Census projections estimate the total Hispanic population in the county at around 274,000 by the year 2030. They account for 20% of the county’s population.
I see four basic groupings of Hispanics in our county. Again, remember that I am speaking in broad strokes here.
As I stated at the beginning, these are broad-stroked personal observations on my part. I look forward to further study and dialogue on this topic with my Hispanic fellow ministers and with all friends in the DBA.
