Buenos Aires, Argentina
Our year at the International Baptist Church, Buenos Aires, Argentina, has started with a bang as we hosted two seminars on consecutive weekends.
On Saturday, 4 March, we hosted the first-ever Global Leadership Summit event in English, ministering to the English-speaking leaders from government, education, business, and church.
The response was very positive as the event served as a tremendous encouragement to those who work in these sectors but who rarely can attend such an equipping event in Argentina that caters for them. We had a good representation from all sectors and saw a couple of leaders who almost never attend any kind of church event. We are planning to host another such event in October.
On Saturday, 11 March, we hosted an Esther Conference for women. The event was bi-lingual and was well-attended by women from various cities around Buenos Aires.
The event as hosted by IBC Buenos Aires with Adél Swart being the speaker but was held at our partner English-speaking church, United Christian Fellowship. It coincided with the day Purim is celebrated internationally.
This seminar was just the beginning as the vision is to walk with women in a year-long equipping process that would give way to healthy women’s ministries in different communities.
