Latin America and the Caribbean Empowerment Fund

The Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Empowerment Fund is a fund for the support of partners in the region where needed most. When a partner faces unforeseen circumstances, the Latin American and the Caribbean Empowerment Fund can be used to provide presence and accompaniment through the necessary resources. Gifts to this fund empower communities, partners, and projects in Latin America and the Caribbean to expand their ministry work as they continue to serve their neighbors. When there is a priority, this fund can bolster support to stand in the gap.

In Latin America, the church reminds us that ministry is not limited to pastors and mission co-workers, but it includes working for all aspects of life – medical care, education, legal work, human rights advocacy, agriculture, social work. Through talents, energy, and time, partner ministries are sharing the Good News of God’s love that calls for justice and peace for all of humanity.

Partner churches, organizations, and institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean are providing life-giving work, such as:

  • Providing theological training for the next generation of church leaders
  • Promoting the rights and livelihoods of women and children
  • Building communities of peace with justice
  • Advocating for the rights of displaced peoples
  • Healing the deep wounds caused by violence and natural disasters
  • Challenging the lingering injustices of colonialism
