Alianza Cristiana, Peru
August 5, 2017 - August 15, 2017
Total trip cost: $3400
Alianza, Peru lies on the Pastaza River in the Amazon Basin near the Ecuadorian border. The region is jungle and is only accessible by missionary aquaplane, yet it is home to a significant number of indigenous peoples and pastors to be trained.
Among the peoples inhabiting this part of the Amazon basin region of Peru are the Achuar, Candoshi/Shapra, and Quechua. Church planting efforts have had considerable success in this region, yet the training needs are great. Training teams will travel to this strategic location where it is expected that a group of 80-100 will be gathered for training.
Reaching & Teaching is seeking like-minded partnering churches that will send qualified teachers to Oaxaca 1 to 3 times per year for the duration of the 3-year training program.
Those who participate on this trip will teach 2 modules:
1) An overview of the New Testament, as well as give instruction on the spiritual discipline of prayer and the topic of the pastor's character.
2) A course on Christian Doctrine, as well as give instruction on the spiritual discipline of worship and the topic of shepherding God's flock.
All team members are expected to procure a copy of: "Hearts, Heads, and Hands: A Manual for Training Others to Train Others" and have read: "Foreign to Familiar: A Guide to Understanding Hot - And Cold - Climate Cultures." Because Reaching & Teaching does not ship these resources, we do not adjust the trip cost to account for the purchasing of them.
