What Would You Do? – The Immigrant Experience

In October 2018, Experience Magazine published an interactive journey through eight different immigration stories. “Every American immigrant, from every era, has a story — shaped by laws, demographics, economics, racial attitudes, and decisions made in the name of opportunity and love.” Click here to follow the paths of eight immigrants from different parts of the world, and see what you would do in response to the choices they faced. Each journey has at least three possible endpoints, and you will see that the experience is shaped by both personal choices and factors beyond an immigrant’s control.

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and Church Planting

Hispanic parents who speak Spanish to their children declines across immigrant generations

Being Hispanic does not mean you automatically speak Spanish. My ancestors came from Germany and the language is not in my vocabulary. How these children of immigrants meet Jesus and worship needs to be considered in church planting and outreach. Spanish also needs to be offered as needed for discipleship and following Jesus as well.

Consider:

40 million in the US speak Spanish at home (US second language)
61% of Hispanic immigrants are Spanish dominant
32% are bilingual
6% of second-generation Hispanics are Spanish dominant
<1% of third or higher generation Hispanics are Spanish dominant
7% of immigrant HIspanics are English dominant
75% of third-generation Hispanics are English dominant

Intergenerational outreach and discipleship need to consider these figures when planning and being involved in these ministries.
