About Cuenca

Cuenca lies in the Sierra region of Southern Ecuador. The full name of the city, Santa Ana de los Cuatro Rios de Cuenca, hints at the location of the city. It lies at the confluence of four rivers—the Tomebamba, Yanuncay, Tarqui, and Manchangara Rivers. By driving time, Cuenca lies four hours east of Guayaquil and nine hours south of Quito.

Overview

The training project in Cuenca offers an opportunity to train pastors from the Sierra region of Ecuador as well as some who will travel from the Costa and Oriente regions as well. Indigenous groups that may be impacted include the Highland Quichua and Shuar peoples. While there are a number of evangelical churches in the area, many pastors lack basic theological training and are eager to receive this training.

Travel & Accomodations

Teams will fly into Guayaquil or Quito from hub airports in the United States and then fly by national airline to Cuenca’s airport. Some teams may fly into Guayaquil and travel by van the relatively short drive to Cuenca.
