Twelve nationally prominent Pentecostal Latino clergy representing churches in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, New York, Ohio, and Texas travelled to the Holy Land. These pastors lead influential congregations and operate inspiring radio and television ministries in the U.S., Central and South America. Latino Pentecostals are the fastest-growing religious group within the fastest-growing ethnic demographic and have emerged as a major presence in the religious political landscape. In addition to touring holy Christian and Jewish archeological sites, the delegation tackled interfaith issues, learned about Israeli religious society, grappled with geopolitical matters, and discussed Israel’s interests in peace and security in the region.
