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 are recognizing the importance of education at all levels to train workers in order to sustain growth. There is an awakening desire and expectation to work together to maximize our educational efforts to reach this 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. All educational programs have grown exponentially in recent years. Nearly half of the 2,100 Assemblies of God Bible schools and extensions worldwide are in Spanish-speaking Latin America! Thirty years ago there were only a few Christian day schools in the region. Today there are more than 400 schools, ministering to over 100,000 children and youth.

The unfinished missionary task will be to anticipate, embrace and encourage this new emphasis on Christian education and support ministries, offering new paradigms, facilitating coordination and partnerships, working together to build upon the growth of the past to prepare Latin America for its worldwide impact in the future.

should go, and when he is old
he will not turn from it.”
