Executive Director

Greetings from LPAC's Executive Director, Esteban D. Rivera

Welcome LPAC Friends

It is my distinct honor to address you as the Executive Director of the Latino Pastoral Action Center (LPAC). I am delighted to share with you my vision and enthusiasm for our theme, "Embracing New Beginnings and Casting a Fresh Vision for the Future." As we reflect on and celebrate our mission and vision, I extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering support and commitment.

A Vision of Renewal and Transformation

This year's theme encapsulates the essence of renewal and transformation. We envision a barren cityscape transformed by a gleaming gold stream flowing through its heart, symbolizing extraordinary provision where previously there seemed to be none. Golden accents illuminate this stream, radiating hope and prosperity amidst desolation. Along its edges, vibrant new plants with golden leaves sprout, representing fresh opportunities and growth.

The revitalized city, with its golden pathways and bridges, signifies new journeys and connections. This imagery reflects LPAC's commitment to fostering renewal and growth within the communities we serve, grounding our service in a vision of continuous improvement and sustainable development.

Strengthening the Four Pillars of Community Life™

LPAC's vision extends to energizing civil society and rebuilding social capital. We are committed to strengthening the Four Pillars of Community Life™: Families, Schools, Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), and Civic Institutions. These pillars form the bedrock of a healthy, thriving community. By focusing on these areas, we aim to create a network of robust, interconnected entities that support and uplift one another.

Four Principles of Holistic Ministry™

Our dedication to integral growth within the community is encapsulated in our Four Principles of Holistic Ministry™: Liberation, Healing, Community, and Transformation. These principles guide us in our mission to educate, equip, and empower individuals. Through them, we develop leaders who embody independence, articulation, and accountability, serving as valuable resources within their communities.

Looking Ahead with Hope and Determination

As we embrace new beginnings, we remain steadfast in our call to serve and make a positive impact. With your support, we will continue transforming communities and cities, ensuring we align with our vision for renewal and growth.

I am excited about LPAC's future and the incredible plans for our organization and the people we serve. Together, we will make a difference, one step at a time, guided by our shared commitment and united in purpose.

Thank you for joining us on this transformative journey. Let us look ahead with hope, ready to embrace new beginnings and cast a fresh vision for the future.


With much gratitude
