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: the indigenous church in Brazil October 5th, 2022

The Ami Training Center in Brazil hosted the Teruwah conference in July. In Hebrew, Teruwah means “shouts of joy.” This conference, led by friends of Ami, encouraged the indigenous people to use their own music, dances, arts, and musical instruments in worship. Current and former students participated in learning about worship–that it is more than singing, but our attitude and response to God in all aspects of life with Him and in our families and communities. Students wrote music that is relevant to their lives, culture and language. Please pray that God is glorified in these communities through all forms of worship.
