Arequipa, Peru

Arequipa has a significant number of evangelical churches, but there is a need for more church planting and leader training. A significant number of villages and communities in the Andean Highlands near Arequipa have no evangelical witness or churches. Theological training among indigenous Quechua and Aymara pastors in the region is a great need to overcome the influence of prosperity gospel and other unbiblical influences. Ancient animistic beliefs among the indigenous groups in the area also persist and influence the worldview of the people. The significant number of universities in Arequipa as well as the presence of a Baptist Seminary may provide opportunities for student ministry for missionaries. Reaching & Teaching is seeking missionaries who are called to be part of a missionary team in the strategic city of Arequipa, Peru.
