Union Evangelica Pentecostal Venezolana
The Evangelical Pentecostal Union of Venezuela (UEPV) is a grassroots Pentecostal church which was established in 1958. It was originally founded by leaders from the Assemblies of God and members of the Pentecostal movement. The UEPV, based in Maracaibo, Venezuela, has been in partnership with Global Ministries for over 40 years. They have many projects that include, care for women, care for end stage pregnant women, literacy programs, and helping women with disabled children, to name a few.
For more than forty years the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada has had a partnership with the Evangelical Pentecostal Union of Venezuela UEPV. During these four decades, both churches have developed mutuality in mission that included the sharing of human, financial, educational, missiological, spiritual and theological resources. The journey has been very fruitful. Today the Evangelical Pentecostal Union of Venezuela is recognized, not only as a progressive Pentecostal denomination in Venezuela and in Latin America, but more importantly, as an agent of transformation actively involved in promoting justice, peace, and reconciliation in marginalized and poor communities.
