Who We Are Ministries

For more than a century

South America Mission has been working to see the Church of Jesus Christ multiplied and transforming communities by embodying the Kingdom of God. It has been our privilege to participate in Christ’s sufferings. Some have even laid down their lives. We rejoice in the progress of the gospel, a result of the faithfulness of those who have gone before. Yet our zeal for God’s glory in the nations has not waned.

Today that zeal translates into visible form through our missionaries and partners working to share the gospel, reproduce authentic disciples of Jesus, plant churches, train leaders and equip God’s people to minister transformationally.

Pray for: SAM Center – Centro ELIM July 24th, 2024

Located outside Recife, Brazil, Centro ELIM (SAM Center) provides training and care for leaders, churches, and missionaries.

Elim is a Hebrew name. As mentioned in Exodus and Numbers, Elim was a desert oasis God provided for the Israelites on their journey to the promised land. God blessed His people with this place of rest and rejuvenation, a place to delight in God’s blessings as He equipped them for their continued journey. May Centro ELIM be a place like this for Brazil’s leaders, missionaries, and churches.
