Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Mexico
"Tenemos tu casa en Chiapas.” So goes a common greeting in many parts of Mexico but, if the Lord is calling, missionaries could find not only a home, but a rich ministry in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, Mexico. Chiapas is the southern-most state in Mexico and shares a border with Guatemala. Chiapas is the state in Mexico where the gospel is spreading the fastest, but it is also a region where evangelicals have experienced significant persecution. There are numerous churches, but they are often struggling and need training, encouragement, and love from a missionary with a vision for discipleship. Large indigenous groups such as the Ch’ol, Tzotzil, and Zoque are within a short drive from Tuxtla Gutiérrez.
Missionaries stationed in Tuxtla Gutiérrez will have the opportunity to generate and lead pastoral training efforts throughout this part of southern Mexico. There is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen the church for the gospel's continued advance in this region.
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 and be highly relational as well as able to develop and follow processes.
