South America Mission


 
Our vision is to see the Church of Jesus Christ established so that thousands of local, witnessing communities of believers are maturing in their own knowledge and faith, while working to ensure that everyone in South America has multiple opportunities to hear a clear, meaningful and persuasive presentation of the gospel from within their own ethnic or social group.
 
We believe that South America must be won to Christ by South Americans and that the only way there will be enough witnessing believers to fulfill the vision is through the discipling and training of local Christians that God is placing in leadership in the churches.

We must focus most of our resources on the discipling and training of leaders from within those churches who will in turn repeat the process until growing, witnessing churches are multiplied across the continent. We believe that especially in the early stages, leaders are best developed in the context in which they will minister.

We emphasize smaller, highly contextualized, local training programs which provide theological education as an essential part of the larger process of leadership development. We believe that while Biblical leadership requires knowledge and skills, it is ultimately based on character. We believe that there is no substitute for relationships in developing character.

We are committed to structured discipleship models which faithfully and effectively impart knowledge of the Bible while facilitating teacher-disciple relationships in the context of life and ministry.
