First-Ever Latin America Ministry Leadership Conference Held
Pastors from all over South and Central America gathered together in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 27 February-3 March for the first-ever Latin America Ministry Leadership Conference.
The idea was to give pastors from the Latin America region the opportunity to meet for a time of ministry, focusing on some of the unique challenges in their region.
The theme of the conference was “Drawing Deep from the Well,” and speaker Tom Blackaby shared on how as leaders we all need to draw deep from God’s presence, grace, assurance, and rest as we face our failures and weaknesses. It was a very powerful time together. With Melanie Driedger, a qualified counselor, also sharing and ministering through individual sessions, as well as David Fresch and Jimmy Martin teaching, the conference was a time of deep ministry.
There was also ample time for fellowship as the group visited key sights in and around the city including witnessing a live tango show and visiting the world famous Colon Opera Theatre. The group also enjoyed a dinner at the home of one of the local participants.
Everyone went back to their homes edified and blessed, and it is clear that this will not be the last gathering of its kind in the region. We are thankful for the opportunity that was given to the pastors in Latin America to be ministered to in this way.
