Facts from the Herrins

Some little known facts…

  • About ½ of the evangelical churches in Venezuela were planted in the last 10 years.
  • A greater percentage of Venezuelans are now attending evangelical churches (4.2%) than are attending a Catholic church on any given weekend (2.8%).
  • Between 1999 and 2005, an average of three new churches were planted each DAY.


  • Over 40% of Venezuelans have NO church in their community.
  • Over 22,000,000 Venezuelans (out of 27,000,000) are unchurched.
  • Venezuela is the most ‘secular’ nation in Latin America.

Because of the HUGE growth and the HUGE need, we now have the HUGE tasks before us of sharing the Good News of God, planting new churches, and providing pastoral education and training. This is part of the work we’re doing here. If you haven’t already, please consider partnering with us through prayer, support or hands-on efforts through a mission team.
