Instituto Fe y Vida
Since 1992, the staff and pastoral team of Instituto Fe y Vida have been developing, testing, and continuously improving a comprehensive Leadership Formation System for ministers, trainers, advisers, and young adult leaders ministering to Hispanic youth (adolescentes ages 13 to 17) and jóvenes (single young adults ages 18 to 30). This system addresses the minister in a holistic manner, providing the human, faith, and pastoral formation necessary for an effective ministry to young Hispanics, using the Prophets of Hope Model as its pastoral approach. Fe y Vida offers two major areas of our Leadership Formation System: Pastoral Ministry with Hispanic Youth and Young Adults and Biblical Pastoral Ministry with Young Hispanics. Instituto Fe y Vida also offers five intensive formation opportunities this summer in Pastoral Juvenil Hispana, catechesis, and Hispanic ministry.
