InnerCHANGE Venezuela began in 2001 in the hillside slums of Caracas, the capital city. Through many changes in personnel and deep crises in the country, the team has focused on raising up local leaders that today are leading many creative ministries throughout the country and in neighboring countries. The team has walked with these leaders and modeled for them ministries of sports, tutoring, music, children, dialogue, organizing, and small group development. More importantly, the team has modeled a gospel of grace and simplicity in a context where churches and leaders teach prosperity and performance. Currently, the work has shifted to the Amazon region and to the diaspora of Venezuelans now living in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile.
