The Powell​ Family

Our vision for ministry is to make disciples that honor God and his word. Our long-term goal is church planting through discipleship, as we see in the early church, represented in the gospels and the book of Acts. We believe God provide needs so that we can meet them, and we see the this as a primary vehicle to building relationships and fostering discipleship. We are currently planting and growing a church in the area of Condebamba, a diverse suburb of Cochabamba. What started out as an outreach to the youth in the area has become a bridge for meeting and connecting with families. The church plant is a work God is doing among these families and the youth we minister to. We are developing other ministry projects to care for the needs of those we minister to, whether in the form of clothing, food, water, housing, etc. 

"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
(James 2:14-17 ESV)

As we continue in this calling of missions ministry, we have set some goals for the next few years.

1. Network to establish at a thriving church body in Chiquicollo through discipleship and small groups. God has led us to further accomplish this goal through a partnership with En Su Palabra, a local church where Seth is taking on the voluntary role of co-pastor. Misión Ágape, our small church in Chiquicollo is an extension under the spiritual and legal covering of En Su Palabra.  
2. Establish a ministry of small group networks (bible studies and discipleship) through our work with local bodies. The idea is as believers grow spiritually that they be trained and given opportunity to begin discipleship and evangelism with the lost in their immediate area.
3. Develop a community ministry to provide housing, educational needs, etc for families in our community. This is a dream that may take longer than we'd like, but our heart is to meet needs in a tangible way with the hope of carrying the gospel to the lost and broken. Through meeting these basic needs, and sharing the love of Christ, that the church in Cochabamba would be strengthened and see consistent growth. 

Thank you for your prayer support for these endeavors. We are so excited about what God is doing through us in ministry for his glory.  To be counted as a worthy vessel, is our only hope and aim. We want less of us and more of him and to see his name glorified in all the earth. We revel in the goodness of our sovereign and mighty God. Be blessed!
