Share God’s love with the people of this vibrant, lively ethnically diverse nation in 21st century Argentina. Engage with youth through social media, encourage cross-cultural networking, and motivate participation in what God is doing globally.
Sharing the love of God practically
Argentina’s 45 million people are eager to profit from their developing nation. One of the world’s major exporters of wheat, soybeans, and meat, Argentina is also rich in oil and natural gas, with expanding automotive and aircraft industries. These bring migrant workers seeking manufacturing jobs and students wanting to climb the skills ladder. Equally, massive inflation is sending Argentinians to seek professional employment overseas – taking their skills and values with them into the international workplace.
By training future professionals to live out God’s love in their workplace, wherever that might be, sharing God’s love with children and young people in Argentina through teaching values in Sunday School, or sports such as football, there are many opportunities in Argentina for everyone’s future.
Jesus followers in Argentina
Officially, there is religious freedom in this country. Official figures state that 89 per cent of the population are Christian. 84 different people groups are represented in Argentina, with thousands yet to hear of God’s love for the first time. Catholicism has a big influence on government and society. Many international groups work alongside national believers, both in the cities and rural areas.
Come to the capital city of Buenos Aires, teeming with its population of three million, much of it made up of young people in the rapidly growing nation and share the love of God - by talking to university students – even in basic Spanish! Or in less busy locations, where international workers can live alongside national Jesus followers.
In Argentina, when churches closed during Covid 19, pastors saw the importance of supporting believers to live for God even if they couldn’t go to church. This means building, inspiring and motivating others, through sharing their personal journey of faith.
Whether you come for a long, or short time, or whether you pray, or invest in lives through financial support, there are many ways for you to share God’s love with the people in Argentina.
