The Vision of Reaching a Continent Is Born
Dr. Delia Nüesch Olver, Latin America Area Director for the Free Methodist Church, met with leaders from 11 countries to shift their focus from growing their own districts, to reaching a continent for Christ.
Introduction of the Community Church Planting Model
Dr. Delia invited Bruce Bennett to Latin America to introduce the Community Church Planting (CCP) model.
More than 250 churches in just three years.
Expansion Across Denominations
Impact Latin America was formed as an independent organization and John Jairo Leal was hired to catalyze this movement of God beyond the FMC.
CCP Network Growth
By the end of 2020, the number of churches doubled with 506 Houses of Peace bringing 1093 individuals together towards new faith in Christ.
Global Pandemic and Movement of God
No other region is hit harder by the pandemic than Latin America: One in three Covid related deaths worldwide are Latin American.
God's peace continues to spread in the midst of increased social, political, and economic unrest. By August, 55 organized CCP networks in 16 countries are connecting 710 Houses of Peace, training 819 leaders, and have led 2744 individuals to new faith in Christ.
