Andrew and Lisa Peart - Bolivia

Santa Cruz is one of the fastest growing cities in South America. As well as being Bolivia’s financial centre, its rapid change has resulted in significant socio-economic challenges such as reducing educational opportunities, healthcare shortages, social instability, infrastructure issues, worsening sanitation and increasing corruption.

The church that we are connected to, Cristo Luz del Mundo (meaning “Christ the Light of the World”), is located within the heart of the financial and residential centre. It is well placed to connect to and engage missionally with the burgeoning community of middle-class professionals, businesses and families.

Call

To share the gospel message through serving the local community and wider church in one of the fastest growing cities in South America.

Role

Partnering with the local church to strengthen its missional outreach to schools, residents and businesses. We will also be assisting the diocese in its goal to become financially self-supporting.

We will be working as part of a team to increase the mission engagement of the church, helping it to become a beacon within the community that people are drawn to. This builds on the Anglican Church of Bolivia’s vision of making disciples with a real heart for Christ and for their neighbour. We will particularly focus on local outreach through activities such as Messy Church, Alpha, English classes, life skills classes, a mobile coffee shop and a library.
Drawing on our background in business and hospitality, Andrew is developing a micro-enterprise programme with an emphasis on mentoring, discipleship and sustainability, strongly connected to local churches. Lisa will also be building missional connections with families at our girls’ school.

There is a pressing need for the Anglican Church in Bolivia to become financially self-sustaining. To help with this, Andrew will also be involved with helping the church to use its significant infrastructure in order to develop vital streams of income to support the church’s mission work.

Lisa grew up in a small town in the US, moved to London in her early thirties and came to Christ there. Andrew grew up in the UK and came to faith in his early teens. They met in London through the hospitality industry. Over the past two years, as short term people in mission in Santa Cruz, we have been focused on laying the foundation for longer-term ministry, embracing the culture, language and local community. We are so excited to be part of what God is doing here in Bolivia.
