Andean Missions Alliance

AMA consists of a cooperation of churches in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, as well as Las Vegas, Nevada, Sacramento, California and the Rio Grande church in Texas. It is led by a board that consists of the church leaders from the supporting churches.

SEMA was established in 2009 replacing the Greater Nashville Church as the overseeing organization and in 2016 changed it’s acronym to AMA. Since 2009 churches have been planted in Duitama, Villavincencio, Barranquilla and Bucaramanga, Colombia; also in Arequipa and Chincha, Peru.

The 2020 vision for Grupo Andino is:
Ecuador: to plant churches in Guayaquil, Esmeraldas and Cuenca
Peru: to send a mission to Iquitos
Venezuela: to send a mission team to Barquisimeto
Colombia: to plant churches in Popayán and Cartagena

The annual missions goal is set based on budgeted needs; this is shared with supporting churches with suggested goals based on prorated membership. Typically, 100& of this goal is for AMA, but contributing churches may set a higher goal to retain some for other uses, such as member missionary trips. The annual missions budget in 2014 was 184,000 and 151,000 in 2015.

The Colombian churches are financially self-supporting. Churches have sprung up around the country and are being strengthened and watered primarily by the church in Bogota, but with the support of the leaders in Medellin and Cali.

There is still much work to do in these countries. The Andean Missions Alliance is committed to helping the churches in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru grow in spiritual strength and impact the region for the glory of God.

Grupo Andino

The name Grupo Andino historically comes from an union that various countries in South America formed for trade purposes.  For our group it includes Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela and instead of a trade union what defines our union is our desire to connect and support one another in the efforts to spread the word of God throughout the Northwestern part of South America.

Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela – the God-kissed northwestern expanse of continental South America. Here you will find snow-capped volcanoes, rugged mountain terrain, and tropical jungles teeming with wildlife in this paradise of God’s creativity. You also find millions of people with a skewed vision of God. Most do believe in God – His presence is pretty hard to escape in the midst of that explosion of God’s creation, but the view of God has been dulled by centuries of nominal Catholicism which overlays centuries of paganism undergirded by Andean animism.

Against that backdrop, there are men and women living in these lands committed to seeking and saving those who have been lost, those who are longing for a relationship with God, committed in finding ways to serve the poor, needy, orphans and widows around them.
