U.S. Congressman Doug Lamborn from Colorado’s 5th District visited Nazarene Bible College August 27, participating in a special luncheon. NBC student Gabriel Valle, who is concluding his Bachelor of Arts in Leadership and Ethics, hosted the event, which allowed Lamborn to connect with local Hispanic pastors and leaders from several congregations and faith-based service groups within the Colorado Springs community.
Discussions covered a wide range of concerns of the Hispanic faith community, including education in public schools, religious freedom, immigration laws, and public health issues. Lamborn gave his personal testimony as a Christian and outlined several legislative projects he has introduced or is working on that could help Hispanic communities. Pastors voiced their concerns over several current social issues, offering their perspective as Hispanic Christians from many denominations and backgrounds while also expressing their commitment to work together in their community.
NBC was privileged to support and facilitate this conversation between Lamborn and Colorado Springs’ Hispanic Christian leaders and remains committed to encouraging such dialogue in the future.
