A Growing Need for Concerted Training Ministry

Latin America is changing rapidly. Globalization, technology, communication, travel—these and other factors are accelerating this change. Latin American countries are tired of poverty. They recognize that education is key to improving society. But only Christian education produces true change through transformation of heart and mind.

National churches are maturing. After decades of growth, our leaders recognize the urgent need to train workers at all levels in order to advance Christian values and to sustain growth. They’re learning to work together to maximize training efforts to reach their continent and beyond. Who will guide this new cooperation and interdependence?

The face of missions is changing. Missionaries make disciples and teach them how to live for Christ. Although this basic missionary goal remains the same, methods and strategies must change. Christian Education has become a strategic priority for Latin America.

Training and educational programs are growing exponentially. Half of our Bible schools and training centers, and half of our in-classroom students worldwide are in Spanish-speaking Latin America! Thirty years ago there were only a few Christian day schools in the region. Today there is an army of more than 6,000 teachers, ministering to more than 100,000 children and youth in more than 350 schools. Who will orchestrate needed training?

The work of missions is evolving. Although the basic missionary task to win, train and send is the same, methods and strategies are changing. The unfinished missionary task will be to anticipate, embrace and encourage the growing emphasis on education and training ministries. The LARTC stands ready to create new paradigms, to build and strengthen partnerships and to raise up Christian leaders to prepare Latin America to win, train and send harvest workers to the ends of the earth.

should go, and when he is old
