John Knox Theological Center
in Cobán, Guatemala

About Our Partner

The Evangelical National Presbyterian Church of Guatemala (IENPG)

The John Knox Theological Center in Cobán is part of a comprehensive Presbyterian ministry campus that will include a K-12 school, dormitory, theological training center, chapel, guest house, dining hall, water purification system and manse. The theological training program, directed by the Evangelical National Presbyterian Church of Guatemala (IENPG), is in its third year with 72 indigenous students enrolled from nine presbyteries. This program equips pastors and church leaders to be more effective in proclaiming the Good News and expanding God’s Kingdom in their communities. Mission co-worker Philip Beisswenger (The Antioch Partners) serves as the coordinator of this project. The center’s foundation, frame and roof are completed. Funds are needed to finish the construction including interior and exterior walls, painting, flooring, plumbing and electrical work.

The Impact

Missionary Philip Beisswenger is serving the development of this training center in Cobán which will help to equip indigenous church leaders for ministry in the northern presbyteries of Guatemala.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $25,000 to assist with construction of the center.
