Country Overview

Mexico is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world and also boasts the most UNESCO World Heritage sites among any Latin American countries. Geographically it is about three times the size of Texas and features two primary mountain ranges that connect in the north to the Rocky Mountains. A relatively young population (about 1/3 being 15 years of age or under) makes reaching this generation of Mexicans with biblical truth critical for the future.

Mexico’s Catholic heritage still makes up the highest percentage of Mexicans, but the evangelical church is growing at close to 4% per year. To strengthen the evangelical church in Mexico, pastors need Bible training to ward off false teachings prominent throughout the country and to spread the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Training History and Opportunity

In 2013, a Training National Trainers group comprised of a mix of Baptist and Presbyterian pastors have completed their four year training program. This training was an answer to prayer for Rolando Talin, a pastor who hopes to help launch a future training group in Mexico City. Another training possibility is in Monterrey.

Special thanks to Christ Church Dubuque for partnering to train Mexican pastors.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the right partners and training opportunity to take shape.
  • Pray for the trained pastors to spread TNT training across Mexico and in their congregations.
  • Pray for God to raise future leaders up to catch a vision to train pastors all across Mexico in Biblical Exposition.
