Between the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon jungle, Ecuador is a truly rare and special place. Designated one of only 17 “megadiverse” countries, it is one of the few places where even wildlife is constitutionally protected.
Evangelical Christians have grown from just 17,000 in 1960 to 1.2 million today. Among the Quechua people, over 50% now proclaim Christ in certain regions where only a fraction had heard the Gospel just decades ago. Still, much work needs to be done.
e3 Partners is working to ensure that a thriving local church exists in every community throughout Ecuador. We are equipping existing believers and training local pastors to identify unreached communities and share the Gospel effectively. As people come to faith in Christ, we are establishing small groups that help them take the next steps in their spiritual growth and serve as the seeds for new churches.
