St. Lucia and ABWE Canada
“We appeal to you as the Macedonians appealed to Paul. ‘Come over and help us,’ for we are desperate to train those who are willing and able. If you have experience and the gift of service, God can use you to advance His Kingdom in St. Lucia.”
The Spiritual Need in St. Lucia
St. Lucia claims religious freedom for all, but many of the island’s 160,000 inhabitants are unsaved.
The people of St. Lucia are evenly distributed between urban and rural areas, however the capital of Castries does contain more than one third of the population.
About 90 percent of people living in St. Lucia claim to be Christian. About two thirds of these Christians are Roman Catholic and one third are Protestant. Baptists make up only 2.2 percent of the population.
There is also a small non-Christian group, and within this group are members of the Rastafarian movement — a religious movement that began in the 1930s in Jamaica — or those who practice Hinduism or Islam.
ABWE Canada in St. Lucia
ABWE Canada is dedicated to sharing the Gospel in St. Lucia. We are excited about the opportunities available here, but we need assistance in making these opportunities realities.
Our goal is to grow the following ministries: youth leadership, church planting, leadership development, discipleship coaching, camp ministry, writing literature for Sunday school materials, marketing (promotional materials for the ministry), music, sports, fundraising (for special projects) and literacy (assisting illiterate and semi-literate people to read).
With additional missionaries we can grow God’s kingdom, make churches more accessible, reinforce strong leadership, and continue to provide guidance to those who are spiritually hungry. The harvest in St. Lucia is abundant, but the laborers are few.
