The Asbury Latino Center receives a Capacity Building Grant from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity in partnership with Asociación para la Educación Teológica Hispana (AETH). This yearlong project allows Christian organizations to strengthen and expand their current organizational capacities.

“AETH and Leadership Education are making an investment to help the Asbury Latino Center expand the quality of the education that we provide,” Dr. Danny Román-Gloró, Director of the Asbury Latino Center, said. “The project funded through this grant will significantly impact our students’ growth as healthy and mature pastors and impact the churches that they serve throughout the USA and Latin America.” 

The Asbury Latino Center will use this grant funding to create a comprehensive online education training program for the instructors within the Latino Ministry Formation Program and the Bilingual Master of Arts Degree. This training will improve the quality of online instruction that those programs offer to students.

The Asbury Latino Center is a central place for all the Spanish-language and bilingual programs at Asbury Seminary. These programs are offered online, face-to-face and hybrid formats and reflect the best scholarship and ministry training that the Seminary has to offer. The Asbury Latino Center offers the Bilingual Master of Arts in Ministry, a graduate certificate in Hispanic Ministry Formation, the Excellence in Preaching Initiative and the Latino Ministry Formation Program.
