Trinidad and Tobago
The Spiritual Need in Trinidad & Tobago
As a world leader in energy production and an entertainment epicenter, Trinidad and Tobago has a reputation that betrays its small size. It is the southernmost island country in the Caribbean, and is home to more than one million residents between its two major islands. The islands have a unique blend of Indian, African, Chinese, Arab and Caribbean cultures, because of the many resettlements of people groups on the islands during European colonization. Generations of Indian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern residents have impacted the island’s traditions and religious beliefs. In fact, about 30% of the population practice Hinduism or Islam, and Hindu holidays are widely celebrated. About 67% of the population identify as Christian, with 41% of them as Roman Catholic and 24% evangelical believers.
While the people of Trinidad and Tobago are very religious in tradition and in thought, issues like substance abuse and addiction run rampant on the island. The effects of widespread addiction include high crime rates and the dismantling of the family unit in society. Our hope is to transform communities by reaching future generations with the truth of the gospel before they experience similar systemic brokenness.
Evangelical Missions To Trinidad Tobago
Starting in 1999, ABWE missionaries have been leading by example in Trinidad and Tobago. The greatest need for our evangelical missions to Trinidad Tobago is for team members who have a great love for people and a willingness to share God’s word. We seek additional missionaries who can help offer theological education to local pastors to broaden their biblical knowledge and disciple new believers. In order to reach families and communities for Christ, we need individuals who are willing to share the gospel in Trinidad and Tobago and serve in church-planting, youth and children’s ministries, leadership training, teaching, counseling, and sports programs.
