Training Quichua Pastors and Church Leaders

Quechua Pastor and Wives' Conference Riobamba, Ecuador

Chimborazo Pastors and Wives' Conference provided for Peniel Theological Seminary by Abide in Christ, Riobamba, Ecuador August 2011

"For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God. Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood" (Acts 20:27-28, NASB). 

High in the wind-swept snow-capped Andes mountains of Ecuador, Abide in Christ presents evangelism conferences teaching personal evangelism to Quechua pastors and leaders.

The town of Laguna San Martin sits 11,200 feet above sea level across from Mt. Altar with its eternal snow glistening in the sun. The Land of Canaan Evangelical Church has a vibrant witness in this community. Wil taught Evangelism Workshops here, and three Christians from the U. S. went door to door sharing Christ with leaders from the church. In two days there were fifty decisions for Christ. In Santa Anna, at 11,700 feet, where there is no work, another 29 people made decisions for Christ. We distributed over 250 New Testaments in these two locations.

In response to the program a Quechua listener in New York City called after hearing the broadcast. Our website, AmaCristo.com, is already publishing Alberto Copa's Bible studies in Quechua.

Seminario Teologica Peniel Riobamba Ecuador

Peniel Theological Seminary

In the evening services, nine Quechua choirs sang Christian songs in their beautiful language. You could hear a pin drop in each of the services as they listened intently to the exposition of the book of Galatians. Numerous times they interrupted with applause as they expressed agreement and appreciation.

what you can do

Partnership missions give you an opportunity to become personally involved in what God is doing in world missions.

Pray daily for the work in Honduras.

Give financially.  We are a faith mission and are dependent upon your financial gifts. Please pray about becoming involved in the support of our mission. “As long as the Lord provides I will give … $25  $50  $100 $___ a month.”
