This chapter argues that for many church officials, the fervent Hispanic Catholics in evangelization groups, apostolic movements, small faith communities, and youth ministries represent the organizational challenge of tapping into their leadership base and guiding it—or some would say controlling it—so that it remains faithful to a canonical vision of the Catholic Church's teachings and mission. Hispanic ministry leaders contend that a particularly urgent challenge is to form their grassroots counterparts in a broad ecclesial vision that transcends the bounds of their own movement or group and diminishes competition between fellow leaders. Another frequent concern is that many charismatic leaders are overly focused on the pursuit of affective religious experience and are ill equipped to deal with inevitable disappointments in their ministries and perceived defects in fellow church leaders, especially priests.
