Ministry in El Salvador
El Salvador is one of the most densely populated countries in Central America. There is a large range of religious beliefs in El Salvador, including Roman Catholicism, Evangelical Christians, Jehovah's Witnesses, Muslims, Jews and Atheists.
The Bible Society of El Salvador is passionate when it comes to sharing the Word of God with the people in their country. They place a heavy emphasis on youth work and technology, knowing that the world is a changing place and that they must adapt to changes in how they communicate. They are strong Bible advocates in their country and want to show how the Bible can make a positive impact in their society.
The urbanisation of the population of El Salvador in recent years has meant that it has gone from being a predominantly rural society to one in which 60% of people live in cities. This change has meant an increase and crime, poverty and gangs. As a result, the Bible Society does a lot of rehabilitation work and outreach to prisons.
