Establishing a Hispanic missional strategy requires an understanding of the customs and culture of the people group in order to develop creative opportunities to connect missionally. This thesis will help to create a bridge of better understanding concerning the complexity of the Hispanic culture and its uniqueness within the American Culture. This thesis addresses the contextual view by connecting with the Hispanic American cultural condition, secondly, the migration dilemma, a theological perspective toward Hispanic migrant people, and lastly, the missional strategy, a Hispanic theology around the mission of the Church. The last chapter will focus on practical suggestions for developing a Hispanic missional action plan within a multi-cultural environment. Church leaders, Christian educators, scholars, etc. will be able to benefit from this research for the purpose of creating a cultural understanding of the Hispanic community and to further develop a Hispanic theology that connects the church with a missional strategy.
