In a country that boasts both Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, the Andes mountains, flat plains and a rainforest, Colombia is definitely a vibrant country. This third-most populous country in Latin America is over 80% Catholic. The Brethren Church in Colombia is lead by Marcelo and Adriana Ferreri. Marcelo works hard raising up, mentoring and developing leaders, so they may be sent into ministry. There are currently five Brethren Churches in Medellin. Several leaders have expressed a calling to missions and they are prayerfully looking at launching ministries in Bogota and even Cartagena.
Recent changes in political climate have opened this beautiful city up to be an option for short-term mission teams looking for an international mission trip opportunity.
