Training Peruvian Pastors in Expository Preaching

Quick Stats1,2
• Population: 31.1 million
• Official Languages: Spanish, Quechua, Aymara
• Evangelical population: 11.6%


Country Overview

Peru traces its history back to the Incan Empire. In the 16th Century, the Spanish came and introduced Catholicism. Today most Peruvians call themselves Catholic, with close to 12% of the population being evangelical.

Operation World diagnoses problems in the Peruvian church: “A lack of trained leaders is so acute that both future growth and current discipleship are threatened. The absence of solid biblical theology amongst pastors is apparent in the churches as doctrinal confusion, false teaching and the influence of marginal sects grow. A culture of autocratic leadership style hampers not only the congregation but the potential impact of pastors themselves. A new paradigm of leadership formation is essential.”

Leadership Resources hopes to remedy this situation by training pastors in biblical exposition. We will help pastors grasp the whole message of the Bible through teaching biblical theology and strengthen faithful shepherds to disciple their people with clear bible teaching.

Training Opportunity

We plan to start training with a group of Baptist pastors in a city south of Lima and near the coast in the spring of 2017.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for our training to stir a passion in the hearts of these Peruvian pastors for faithful Word ministry that will transform their church, communities, and countries.
  • Pray for the funding of this group in Peru.
