A Window to the Middle East

Lead -- by serving with a Christ-like attitude. Latino Leaders Who Serve.

Lead is Christian leadership through networking, mentoring, and developing others in a Latino context.

What does it mean to be globally competent?
What does it mean to be globally competent? Christian leaders need to be able to see from a global perspective, understanding their own worldview and those of others. They comprehend the global dimensions of their chosen fields and they communicate effectively across cultural and linguistic boundaries. Culturally aware, they demonstrate adaptability and continue to develop their global competencies throughout their lives.

Dr. Carlos Campo: Leadership in Action
Leadership, especially Christian leadership, often takes the way of serving, Dr. Carlos Campo, President of Regent Universityhelping and supporting those who have no voice. Dr. Carlos Campo does just this through his editorial on CNN's Belief Blog where he gives his take on the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act would not exclusively help Hispanics, but all groups helped by the DREAM Act, including Hispanics, would reinvest their talents back in building up the United States.

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR)
NCLR is the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States and works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans. According to the American Bar Association, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is a member of the NCLR. The 2011 NCLR Annual Conference will take place July 23-26 in Washington DC. There are some powerful and inspiring quotes to be taken from the following conference promo video. One of them, spoken with regards to Latinos in America, is "Our destiny is in our hands and no one else's. This gathering represents our Hispanic community. Not only are we deeply part of the fabric of America...We ARE America!" CTL spoke with NCLR and we were informed that the workshops, town hall and expo at this year's annual conference in Washington DC are all free to the public. If you want to attend this year's NCLR conference in DC, email CTL. We'll work on arranging carpools. With this year's roundtable emphasis being on U.S. Latinos, it would be an excellent thing if Regent University was well represented at this year's NCLR, wouldn't it?

On the NCLR website you'll find lists of upcoming events, current campaigns, and have the ability to sign up for their Action Network. "The NCLR Action Network is free and will help you contact your members of Congress and other powerful leaders on important issues affecting the Latino community. You will also receive invitations to host local events in your area, join national calls with NCLR Affiliates and activists from the NCLR Action Network, and participate in interesting events like occasional film screenings."
