One part of this work that we love is that it takes us to remote places that are often overlooked. Last month we travelled to churches around the provinces of Oruro, Potosi, and Santa Cruz to encourage them to be missional in creative, practical ways that show Christ’s love to their communities. In the little town of Cruce Culta on the border of Potosi and Oruro, we received an incredible honour. The pastor had heard us speak previously and was exited not only for our visit, but to share that their congregation had already started to actively care for the

The UJBB (Union de Jóvenes Bautistas de Bolivia) is the National Youth Union of Bolivian Baptists. This institution focuses on supporting the needs of youth throughout the country, provides training, and works to promote mobilization.

The school year in Bolivia generally runs from February to November, so over the past couple of weeks families have been transitioning into back to school mode. Each year the Seminary (STB) has a tradition of welcoming first year students during an inauguration service. This is always an exciting time as these young leaders start a new chapter of life, and for many this includes leaving home for the big city of Cochabamba. This inauguration service had students lead music and a drama, there was a message from Emigdio Veizaga (formerly a CBM national staff), and an

Project PEPE

Tags: , , , , , , |

The Centre for Integral Mission (CMI), located in El Alto, has a national mandate to work with pastors and congregants as their churches strive to actively live out their faith through both word and action. By offering a variety of workshops and courses, CMI aims to strengthen leaders and change the long held notion that evangelism and social action are separate and distinct missions of the church. While trainings happen across Bolivia, the physical centre in El Alto is used as a central office, as well as a location to host a local church project from the neighborhood. This
