Hispanic Churches Hit Hard by Economy

Ad Feedback

Hispanic churches in the U.S. say the economic crisis has hit their members hard. Especially those who didn't read the fine print on their home loan applications.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference says churches are beginning to minister to their congregation's financial needs. The conference says it's a plan it will encourage more churches to follow.

"On Sunday's, they'll preach Christ and they'll preach renewal and they'll preach revival," Rodriguez said.

"And on Monday, they will talk about economic renewal and economical revival and economic viability and retirement plans and pensions and healthcare reform. That's the sort of church that we definitely want to model throughout the nation," he explained.
