“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life.’ ” —John 6:35

Education Consultant for Indigenous People, Guatemala

Founded in 1882, the Evangelical National Presbyterian Church of Guatemala (IENPG) was the first national church to result from Presbyterian mission efforts in Central America. Today the IENPG has approximately 60,000 members, with one Synod composed of six Spanish-speaking and eleven indigenous-language presbyteries. The indigenous population in Guatemala bears a disproportionate burden of poverty, illiteracy, and a lack of access to education. The Education Consultant for Indigenous Peoples will assist the National Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Guatemala's indigenous presbyteries to assess their educational needs, find ways to address them, and use available resources in an effective and transparent manner. Richard and Debbie Welch have been called into team ministry to fill this position.
