The Spiritual Need in Argentina

Argentina is a geographically large and diverse country with a population of about 48 million people. The vast majority live in urban areas, with almost one-third of the entire population living in the greater Buenos Aires area. The tumultuous political history of the 20th century contributed to the worsening of the country’s economic situation, and has deeply affected many Argentines both economically and culturally.

Most Argentines have European ancestry due to Spanish colonization that began in the 16th century and heavily influenced the development of a blended European and Latin American culture in the country. Along with European influence came Roman Catholicism, to which almost 90% of Argentines still subscribe.

Though most Argentines consider themselves Christians, religious practice and affinity is declining, particularly among the younger generation. Yet, Argentines are offered religious freedom and a growing number are finding true freedom in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Biblically-faithful evangelism, discipleship, and church planting missions in Argentina are desperately needed to bring hope to the nation and support to its local believers.

We'd love to get to know you and discuss how God is calling you.
