Evangélica Menonita Argentina

 Partner overview



The Argentina Mennonite Church (Iglesia Evangélica Menonita Argentina or IEMA) is Mission Network's primary partner in Argentina. The IEMA has multiple mission programs, some of which are involved in partnerships. <p>IEMA began through the arrival of workers from the former Mennonite Board of Missions in 1917. Due to the size of the country and the spread of the churches, IEMA is organized into five regions. In addition to support for IEMA in their leadership development, the Mission Network is involved in partnerships with regional mission emphases: Visión Evangelística y Misionera de la Región Central (Evangelistic Missionary Vision of the Central Region –VEMCE, formerly known as VEMZO) , west of Buenos Aires, together with a cluster of congregations from Atlantic Coast Conference in Pennsylvania; and Programa Misionero al Norte de Argentina (Missionary Program of Northern Argentina -- PROMINOA), from Buenos Aires to the north, together with North Central Conference. Mission Network also relates with the Proyecto Misionero Patagónico (Patagonia Mission Project -- PMP) in the south, and together with the Central zone of IEMA supports Alfonsina and José Oyanguren in their Mennonite team ministry in the Argentine Chaco.</p><p> </p><p>The churches have developed gifts in listening to a call for mission work in their own country and developing regional mission programs to carry out that work. Currently twenty-six missionary church planters serve in the regional mission programs. Congregations also strive to meet needs within their communities, including education, work with children and youth and conflict management training. </p><p> </p>
