La Paz, Bolivia

La Paz is the administrative capital of Bolivia and is the most elevated seat of government in the world. The city sits in a bowl surrounded by the mountains of the high plains. As it grew, La Paz crept up the hills, resulting in varying elevations from 10,500 to 13,500 ft. Lying near Bolivia's western border with Peru and Chile, La Paz was built by Spanish Conquistadors near the ancient Inca settlement of Laja. La Paz is a modern city of nearly a million people and is the academic, mining and industrial center of Bolivia.

La Paz is positioned near a number of large indigenous groups including the Quechua and Aymara peoples. La Paz will serve as a base for church planting, pastor training, church strengthening, student ministry, and other ministries that would provide opportunities to impact the Andean highlands and the entire nation of Bolivia.

The ideal candidate will be a proven disciple of Christ who has modeled faithfulness to God’s Word by living it out, teaching it in individual and group settings in the local church, and studying how to rightly divide it in Bible college or seminary. He will be willing to travel within his area of service to pursue discipleship opportunities and be able to develop and follow processes.
