Why Theological Training in Latin America Is Critical

Seminary training helped Lucho plant a church, but continued discipleship from missionaries saved his marriage.

Theological education is one of the most critical needs of the church in the growing Latin American church—a need that missionaries can meet.

Battling with the idea of following in his father’s footsteps, Lucho neglected the idea of ever becoming a pastor. However, that all changed when God changed his heart and ignited a passion for the gospel. Lucho enrolled in seminary and planted New Life Baptist Church, and now continues to minister in the Lima area alongside the ABWE team.
