Guatemala (ILAG)

Founded in 1991 by Padre Horacio Castillo, Iglesia Luterana Agsutina de Guatemala, or ILAG, ministers to people from the margins of Guatemalan society, particularly the indigenous poor. The church has about 2,000 members in 17 congregations. ILAG also operates two elementary schools in Guatemala City. The ILAG pastoral team is represented by several pastors, evangelists, and catechists who typically work with more than one congregation. Bishop Castillo retired in 2014, and Pastor Karen Castillo now serves as President of the ILAG and as the primary contact for US congregations.

CtK schedules bi-annual mission trips to work with these congregations, their schools, and the Guatemalan people.
