United States Hispanic Prayer Network Mission (HPN)
Our mission is to raise up a unified grassroots movement of prayer and civic action among the Hispanic-American church that turns our nation back to righteousness and Biblical principles and brings revival to America once again.
About our Founder, Mark Gonzales
Mark Gonzales is the Founder of the United States Hispanic Prayer Network and the United States Hispanic Action Network, two organizations that God is using in this hour to awaken, equip and engage the Hispanic church to establish His Kingdom agenda on the earth.
Mark travels the nation extensively, training, engaging and mobilizing the church—the Hispanic church in particular—in prayer and civic action from a biblical worldview.
Mark has been an effective leader in the movements of prayer and civic engagement for over 14 years. He has had the honor of working alongside many great men and women of God in both the church and governmental arenas.
Partnering with his spiritual mother, Cindy Jacobs of Generals International and with his great friend, Lou Engle of TheCall, Mark has played a key role in mobilizing prayer, especially among the Hispanic church, all over America.
Mark has also had the honor of speaking at the White House, in front of Congress, and has chaired numerous election campaigns, from the local to national level. In the 2008 Presidential Elections, Mark was appointed Chair to the National Hispanic Advisory Council for John McCain.
Mark has also been the visionary and pioneer for several prayer and civic action initiatives, including the Standing for Truth Foundation, which works to see American citizens, especially, people of faith, engaged in the civic arena and exercising their God given right to vote from a Biblical worldview, while taking a stand for Biblical principles though out American society.
Es Tiempo de Votar (Spanish for “It’s Time to Vote”) is a campaign Mark founded that is geared toward increasing voter turn-out among the 19.5 million Hispanic Americans who are eligible to vote in the United States, especially among the community of faith.
Mark has also serves as the President of the Hispanic Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, which represents a national coalition of Hispanic Evangelical organizations, churches, and leaders from across the theological and political spectrum, united in support of comprehensive immigration reform.
For many years, Mark is also a key leader within the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the sister organization to the National Association of Evangelicals, as a member of it’s National Board and as NHCLC’s Vice President of Governmental Affairs.
Currently, under the apostolic covering of Mike and Cindy Jacobs, Mark is a part of the Apostolic Council for the United States Reformation Prayer Network and is also a part of the Emerging Leaders Group for the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders.
Back in 2006, God gave Mark a specific word for the body of Christ: “I am looking for a people that speak two languages; the language that moves heaven and the language that moves the earth. The language that moves heaven is prayer; the language that moves the earth is the vote – civic action.”
Since then, Mark’s mandate has been very clear: to establish a people of faith that know how to operate in both arenas; prayer to shift nations and the vote (civic action) to shift legislation—all from a Kingdom perspective.
With that commission, a strong belief in the prophetic words that have been spoken over the Hispanic community in America, and a deep burden to see revival among his own people, the Hispanic Prayer Network and the Hispanic Action Network were launched to move Hispanics into their God given destiny and DNA of prayer, revival and family values to shift culture and turn America back to God.
From stadiums and pulpits across America to the White House and Congress, as well as his local church, City Hall and community events, Mark burns with this mandate of establishing prayer and civic action every where he goes.
A personal word to Hispanics: God has a dream for your life! A greater purpose for bringing you to America than the American Dream…God has a Dream and He wants you use you to fulfill it...Now is the time!
