In 2019, Petra International began a new church planting work in Colombia. The new church plants are in Bogota, the capitol of Colombia, with a population of 11 million, and Villavicencio, with a population of half a mission. Pastor Leo Gutierrez is leading evangelism, training, and new church planting efforts as the director of Petra Colombia.
Petra Colombia has two church plants in Bogota, led by Pastor Leo and Pastor Guillermo. Pastor Richard leads the church plant in Villavicencio. They have also been reaching out in a new town, Yopal, where an additional church will be planted!
There is currently a need to help with the funding of evangelism projects, work expenses, scholarships for men to get trained to become future pastors, and a financial support need for Pastor Leo.
