Abstract: This workshop examines how use of self as a Latina social worker congregant in a dominant Anglo congregation introduced church leadership to a self-awareness of paternalistic ministry methods and assisted in discovering and developing healthy holistic practices in church and community engagement. Participants learn about best-practice methods that can be used in introducing client self-determination and cultural competency while exploring ways to influence their own congregational settings by engaging different ethnic members within their home church.
