Since 1997, Partner 135 has been heavily engaged in Peru. Each year, Partner 135 sends mission volunteers to conduct evangelism, community outreach, and church planting activities. These activities range from medical, optometry, and dental clinics to kids’ Bible clubs, and evangelistic services.

Machu Pichu

Less than 15% of Peruvians are Evangelical Christians

In 2000, Partner 135 reopened the Peruvian Baptist Theological Seminary in Trujillo. The seminary was founded in 1958 by the Foreign Mission Board (now International Mission Board) of the Southern Baptist Convention. The seminary recently saw the largest graduating class in its history; and currently has students from Peru, Chile, and Ecuador.

The beautiful facility also serves as a mission mobilization center for Partner 135. Currently, churches are being started in the cities of

  • Trujillo

  • Huamachuco

  • Chepen

  • Huánuco

  • as well as several barrios (small outlying communities)

Partner 135 believes the best way to plant indigenous reproducing churches is through making disciples of Jesus.  In this process we also engage in equipping, coaching, and multiplying indigenous (in this case, Peruvian) church planters. Our mission volunteers serve in a catalytic, encouraging, equipping, and gathering role to assist Peruvian church planters, pastors, and church leaders.
