Latin America

Chuck & Jean Van Engen

  • Education and leadership development

The Protestant church continues to grow—so much so that it has outgrown the number of Bible school and seminary professors needed for proper training in Latin America. As desks fill and eager future Christian leaders enroll in Bible schools and seminaries, there is an urgent need for theological trainers who will shape the next generation of Latin American pastoral leaders.  

To address this need, Chuck Van Engen helped launch the Latin American Leadership Development Program (LALDP) in 2004; he now serves as its president. LALDP is a multinational, multidenominational community of Latin American scholars, churches, and educational institutions that provides advanced theological training in Spanish and Portuguese. Jean Van Engen is LALDP’s accountant and chief financial officer.
