Influential evangelical leaders based in the U.S. and Latin America, will gather in Washington, D.C. for a leadership meeting this week known as LiderVision, designed to bring together Hispanic evangelists, pastors and psalmists.
The event organized by Editorial Vida and Grupo Nelson, publishing entities under Harper Collins Christian Publishing, will be headlined by Cash Luna, Danilo Montero, Mark Batterson, Jesus Adrian Romero, Andy Stanley, and more. Organizers say there will be opportunity for participants to share and network with dozens of speakers as nearly 1,000 are expected to attend.
"Pastors and ministry leaders today need ministerial renovation. We need to broaden our knowledge and skills and in turn we need to work together," reads a statement on LiderVision's website. "That is why LiderVision is not only an annual event but an event of connections. We are a neutral, diverse, relaxed, professional and spiritual community meant to help us all become better instruments for God's Kingdom."
The event will also feature round table discussions for participants to engage in conversation and questions about practical topics within ministry today. Each discussion will be moderated by experts in the topic's field and will offer different perspectives on subjects about pastor's wives, youth ministry, worship, coaching, Bible study and technology within the church.
In a previous interview with The Christian Post, David Coyotl, a member of the marketing team at Editorial Vida, said the event is intended to be dynamic with a collaborative environment.
"The purpose is for these experts to disperse their knowledge to those with similar interests and experiences which will facilitate open dynamic interaction among them," said Coyotl.
Coyotl also said that bringing together renowned leaders has been an ongoing work in progress as they have worked to establish relationships with various movers and shakers within the Christian community over the last 15 years.
"We're trying to consolidate a community based on leaders who encounter similar experiences but are separated by different Latin American countries," he added. "Our efforts go beyond our event … it's more than just that."
Last year, Editorial Vida and Grupo Nelson announced LiderVision's website as the first online resource to focus on Spanish-speaking Christian audiences. The site offers ebooks, videos, online education, an e-commerce store, events and more.
LiderVision will also hold conferences in Houston and Los Angeles this summer. For more information, visit lidervision.com.
