Equipping the few, impacting the many.
Since the 1990s Cuba has experienced huge gospel growth. However, the political situation has meant that churches are limited by size and venue constraints and so lots of small house churches have sprung up. Many of these are pastored by men who haven’t had any training in how to teach the Bible. Two thirds of those teaching the Bible on a regular basis have received no training - that is around 4,000 churches.
Equipo Impacto has a vision to train thousands of church leaders and bible teachers how to faithfully interpret and teach the Bible in Cuba. Before this project began, there was no one teaching others how to do expository bible preaching and teaching in the country.
Equipo Impacto offers churches the opportunity to have a three day training course in expository bible preaching and teaching for their leaders. It is headed up by Alexis Perez - a local Cuban church leader who has a degree in Theology and studied on the Cornhill Training Course a few years ago. Alexis travels around the country to deliver courses to churches and also spends time preaching in order to model the form of simple clear and faithful bible teaching that Equipo Impacto is seeking to teach to others. Five times a year Equipo Impacto runs Pastor Preaching Conferences as another way of training bible teachers.

As we look back to 2017, we are greatly thankful to our God and to every one of you. Last year was a fruitful year for the ministry of Equipo Impacto. With this letter we want to review all that God, by His grace, allowed us to do during 2017.
Preaching Workshops: We hosted a total of eight workshops in Cuba last year, reaching 200 pastors across the Island. It is encouraging to see how, through the years, pastors are making progress on how to handle the Bible, and to see how their commitment to preaching the Scriptures with faithfulness has grown. We also are seeing the word spreading out and new pastors are coming to preaching workshops or even asking for workshops in their area. As a result, we are planning to add three new locations next year.
