Latin America

A diverse region with many social issues, yet local champions are sharing the hope of Christ and shining His light in their communities.

The multiplication effect in Latin America

Social issues like poverty, internally displaced people, crime and homicides, and a massive drug trade are realities that many Latin Americans face. A 2015 Congressional Research Service report estimates at least 80,000 people have been killed due to organized crime related incidents since 2006. Latin America is the most violent region in the world in terms of per capita homicides. Each country has different needs, but all needs can be met by Jesus Christ.

There are encouraging signs! In Brazil, for example, the Christian population is growing despite a serious shortage of leaders and training. The local church offers an important outreach to the youth who often turn to gangs. Ministry programs offer these youth a place to belong and family in Christ.
