Why do we go to the unreached people of Peru preaching and teaching? We go because we want God’s name and glory to be magnified among the nations. Our vision is to train indigenous leaders and pastors throughout Peru so that they may be better equipped to reach their people for Jesus Christ.




The church plant began in 2012. We are seeing a number of people wanting to make Iglesia Cristian de la Gracia their home church. We are thrilled to see the local church grow through discipleship, evangelism and expository preaching. We are grateful for what God is doing among the people of Cusco. We have begun to see a shift in the core group of the local church in which Christ likeness and conformity is beginning to take hold within their lives. We pray that God receives all of the glory and honor for this praise!


We work within villages on a remote river in the Peruvian Central jungle. Our goal is to spread the fame of God’s name by training indigenous Pastors and Leaders. Our vision is to spread the Gospel in difficult places within Peru.

Reproducing and training indigenous leaders is key to the Great Commission. Our passion is to patiently commit the time and resources to equip local Pastors to lead their churches.

Working in mostly remote areas, we begin with some basic conferences that will entail story telling the big picture of the Gospel/ Bible to give an adequate foundation. In the training process, there is three elements for each conference: Personal Devotion, Theological Training & Pastoral Leadership.

We are grateful for this open door to go deep into the Amazon jungle to preach and teach among the indigenous people.



“So we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8

We are Joe and Jayne Martinez living and working in Cusco, Peru. We have been missionaries to South America since 2009. We are the parents of three children. We are working as a family sharing our lives with the Quechuan people who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Among the many things we are doing are church planting, teaching, discipling, Bible study groups, counseling, and reaching out to the indigenous tribes within the Amazon Jungle.
