Older Mexican Americans and God-mediated control: Exploring the influence of Pentecostal/Evangelical affiliation

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal, and R. David Hayward. 2013. "Older Mexican Americans and God-mediated control: Exploring the influence of Pentecostal/Evangelical affiliation." Mental Health, Religion and Culture,, 16(3): 319-333.

A growing number of Mexican Americans are leaving the Catholic Church to join Pentecostal and Evangelical congregations. The purpose of this study is to explore the benefits that are associated with joining Pentecostal and Evangelical congregations. A latent variable model is specified that contains the following core relationships: (1) older Mexican Americans who affiliate with Pentecostal/Evangelical congregations will attend worship services more often; (2) older Mexican Americans who attend church more often will receive more spiritual support from their fellow church members; (3) older Mexican Americans who receive more spiritual support will develop a closer relationship with God; and (4) older Mexican Americans who have a close relationship with God will develop a stronger sense of God-mediated control. Findings from a nationwide survey of older Mexican Americans provide support for each of these linkages.
