(Argentina CNSAM). Extreme Nazarene Missions begins its latest church planting project in Argentina with the goal of planting a church in the city of Córdoba.
Extreme Nazarene has planted over 80 churches in Peru, Paraguay, and Ecuador. In its current project, Extreme is focusing on planting vibrant churches in large metropolitan cities of South America. Church of the Nazarene leaders in Argentina indicated their desire to plant a church in Córdoba, a city of over one million people but without any Churches of the Nazarene in the city itself.
The church will be planted using the 40/40 model. A 40/40 church planter is a single young person with a call to missions or to serve God as a church planter. Extreme Nazarene will pair 6 Argentine 40/40s with 6 North American 40/40s of the same gender. Together they will work with an Argentine pastoral couple and North American married couple.
A missionary couple with Extreme Nazarene is currently in Argentina recruiting Argentine youth to be 40/40s. They are presenting the project to church congregations and promoting throughout the country. Interviews and selections of the Argentine 40/40s will be in August. Following, the 40/40s will have over two months to raise funds for their 28 month commitment. The 40/40s will spend 4 months in Quito, Ecuador for seminary courses, 1 month in Cali, Colombia for Master’s Plan training, then 23 months on the ground in Córdoba. The pastoral couple will commit to 4 years at the church plant.
The church plant in Códorba marks a return to Argentina for Extreme Nazarene. Extreme Nazarene was involved with the finishing of the Bruno Radi Convention Center in Pilar in 2008. During that project, over 400 volunteers were involved in finishing construction of the Convention Center and assist in various projects in 10 churches in the Buenos Aires area (Martín Fierro, Moreno Dimini, Hurlingham, San Antonio de Areco, Sourdeaux, Villa Devoto, Villa Argentina, Garin y Jaguel).
