The United Church of Christ (UCC) traces its history to the Congregational Church, who’s history goes back to the Puritans. The UCC formed when the Evangelical and Reformed Church merged with the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches in 1957. The UCC has involved itself fin traditionally liberal social justice issues including the United Farm Workers. Perhaps this cause inspired them to form the Council for Hispanic Ministries (CHM). The CHM works autonomously in concert with the UCC to be an ambassador for the faith, promote the interests of Hispanic and Latino people, and support international, intercultural, and interfaith dialogue.
