The Acts 29 Latin America Network spans from Mexico to Brazil in a region consists of over 600 million people, 35 countries, and five different main languages. The Acts 29 Latin America network was formalized in 2014 and is led by Francisco Bendfeldt, based in Guatemala City, and Jay Bauman, based in Rio de Janeiro.
Until this spring the Latin America application and assessment process has been open only to English-speaking candidates, however the application process is now open to Portuguese-speaking candidates, and will be open to Spanish speaking candidates shortly. There are already several churches in the Latin American network including churches in Guatemala, Chile, Ecuador and Brazil, among others. There are also many other churches associated with our work who are in the process of becoming members.
In both Guatemala and Brazil we regularly offer training events and conferences for pastors and church planters. Additionally in Brazil we have two church-planting residencies in the cities of Rio and São Paulo.
Join us in prayer that the Gospel would continue to bear fruit in Latin America as we seek to plant healthy churches centered on Jesus.
