ComunicadoresUSA President Stan Jeter believes that by investing in Spanish-language Christian media we can increase the positive influence of Hispanics in the social, political and spiritual life of the nation. The next generation of Hispanics merits special attention. "They're bi-cultural and bi-lingual, and as skilled as anyone with the use of social media", says Jeter. "We want to give their pastors and leaders the training tools so they can turn their youth into a media-savvy force for evangelism and discipleship." ComunicadoresUSA offers membership opportunities that will include benefits to online and in city trainings, a monthly newsletter, press credentials and more.

Stan Jeter, Senior Producer for CBN News and NRB Board member chairs the Executive Committee. Other members are Steve Cordon (Vertical Link), Marie Tamayo (Eventers Miami), J. Mark Gallardo (CVCLAVOZ) and Darrell Eash (Sound and Screen).
