Rev. Hernández is a member of the Executive Board of the NHCLC and is currently serving as its National Chapter Director. In these past 5 years, with the Lord’s grace and favor, he has been instrumental and a catalyst in helping to form Chapters in 23 states where the churches have activated its prophetic voice beyond its four walls.

Rev. Abraham Hernández is considered by many fellow clergy in New England as a vital member of a generation of up and coming clergy body that is transforming the Hispanic Faith Base community’s unprecedented and unadulterated Biblical and social justice movement. There is a fire that kindles within Pastor Abraham which has emboldened him and has stirred a fervent passion to see that the Hispanic evangelical church rises and takes its rightful place as the moral and prophetic voice for those who have none and strongly believes in speaking truth to power.
