Jaime Torres
Diocese of Little Rock, Arkansas

Forming Faith, Re-forming Youth

Jaime Torres had a difficult childhood. Caught up in a gang and addicted to drugs, a brush with the law inspired Torres to ask for Christ’s help. And Christ answered, turning Torres into a powerful example of His saving love. As the associate director of Hispanic Ministry for the diocese, Torres uses his own experiences to reach at-risk youth. His Fuerza Transformadora (“Transforming Power”) program helps young people turn away from gang life and substance abuse—more than 500 of them at this writing. Torres is also passionate about faith formation and founded nine schools of evangelization across Arkansas. The response has been so positive that this year, the program will be offered in English.
