South America Mission has a long partnership with the Wayuu people of northern Colombia, working alongside them to support their church leadership and community development initiatives.
CENFOW is a Wayuu pastoral training center located in the northern desert (Uribia, La Guajira) of Colombia. In partnership with South America Mission, the Wayuu church association known as INDIEWACOL founded CENFOW in the early 2000s. Today, there are 35 CENFOW graduates serving as pastors among the Wayuu in northern Colombia. Students board and train at the center for one-week increments each month from February to November. To graduate as a pastor, three years of training is required. Our commitment is to help form a strong, dedicated leadership for the Church among the Wayuu.
