The Reverend Dr. Héctor E. López Scholarship for Latina & Latino UCC Seminarians is a scholarship program to nurture, support and educate Latinas and Latinos in the prophetic and liberating theology of the United Church of Christ.
The United Church of Christ (UCC) has been a prophetic and pioneer Christian voice in America, since the founding of this nation. It is our vision that the message of Jesus was that of an extravagant welcome, in which all people are honored in love and justice.
The Hispanic population has experienced enormous growth in the past few decades. Mainline Protestant denominations have been unable to effectively meet the pastoral challenge this growth represents. The UCC, one of the most prophetic and socially progressive Christian denominations in the USA, is taking action to meet this challenge through its Council for Hispanic Ministries with the establishment of The Reverend Dr. Héctor E. López Scholarship for Latina & Latino UCC Seminarians. This program was established as a 3-way covenant between the Council for Hispanic Ministries, Local Church Ministries & Justice and Witness Ministries of the UCC.
