Mission and Purpose
Project Paraguay Foundation
Members of the Board of Project Paraguay come from all walks of life to include Government attorneys, military officers, doctors, pastors, other professionals, as well as retirees. Our Board includes representatives from a number of Virginia and North Carolina churches who have diverse backgrounds and come from different faith traditions such as Presbyterian, Baptist, and non-denominational. Our common bond is a commitment to the Paraguayan people and the growth of the Kingdom of God in that country.
Project Paraguay partners with the pastors and elders of the El Renuevo and Barrio Parque Churches to distribute literature, medicines, renovate churches, provide student scholarships, and plan for the future of the work in Paraguay.
