Connecting the Church in Mission

Latin America and the Caribbean

Latin America and the Caribbean form a multicultural, multilingual region. Economic conditions vary widely, as do educational opportunities, health services, nutrition and sanitation facilities. Global Ministries relates to a variety of churches including autonomous Methodist denominations and ecumenical organizations. Missionaries are placed in collaboration with indigenous churches. Projects range from schools in the mountains of Chile to clean-water projects in Haiti; from clinics in Mexico to ministry among street children in Brazil. Strong focus is on maternal and child health, and ministries with young people.
