Remittances and Mission

Transnational Latino Pentecostal Ministry in Los Angeles

Spirit and Power

Immigrants are usually the objects of research in relationship to their host country or society, but are seldom studied as subjects of their own future. Latino Pentecostal immigrants in Los Angeles are the subjects of Christian mission. In their transnational experience they are actively involved both in sharing their faith and in helping others. They pursue mission following the transnational familial and network links that are a key part of their lives. This paper investigates five Latino Pentecostal mission efforts that have developed in the midst of economic globalization, and exist because people are moving to and from the United States and/or within their home countries looking for better economic opportunities. Both their commitment to send remittances to their family and networks and their mission commitments follow similar patterns, and reflect their existence as transnational actors for whom national borders are a nuisance, but not a definer of how they understand their task.
