PRESENT MINISTRIES

There is much to celebrate in the newly formed mission district of Uruguay, despite its being located in the most secular of all Latin American countries. The church’s consistent ministry to children is having ripple effects that are bringing entire families to Christ and establishing new churches. The youth are taking leadership in planting churches. They have taken the training they received through the Community Church Planting movement and are sharing their faith and multiplying disciples.
