NAD’s “Changed” Initiative to Target Young Latinos

Story by Laura Sámano

Sandra Juarez and Manny Cruz will host the 2012 Latino Youth NET to air this fall.
Through an evangelistic initiative called “Changed: Real Lives in a Real World,” the North American Division (NAD) will target more than 30 million second- and third-generation Hispanic youth with the three angels’ messages. Through the yearlong initiative, which launches this fall, NAD leaders hope to challenge the youth to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Traditionally, Latino evangelism has focused on foreign-born Hispanics, but NAD statistics indicate that Adventism is growing slowly among second- and third-generation Hispanics. Because of these generations’ blended linguistic and cultural characteristics, “Changed” is designed to speak their language and present Jesus as One who identifies with their needs.

As part of the yearlong initiative, the 2012 Latino Youth NET includes several weekend training events and a live satellite broadcast in Spanish, October 13–20, from Orlando via Esperanza TV and in English, November 3–10, via the Hope Channel.
