The Panaggios

Jim and Kay Panaggio Ministry Focus

Jim and Kay serve with Reach Global, the mission of the Evangelical Free Church of America. Presently Jim’s ministry is focused on training Spanish speaking pastors and leaders throughout Latin America. His travels have taken him to countries like Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Cuba. Jim also leads a Ministry called Entrenamiento Pastoral (Pastoral Training) where he maintains a web page and a You Tube page providing biblical resources for Spanish speaking leaders and churches.

Jim and Kay and their five children lived and served in Lima, Peru for 15 years where they
worked with the national church to strengthen existing churches and plant new churches. Jim was the team leader for many years and also the principal liaison between the mission and the Peruvian Evangelical Free Church. He also was involved in training pastors and leaders, teaching at the Free Church Bible Institute as well as a local Christian University. Kay was deeply involved with helping the churches develop children’s ministry. Together with a Peruvian couple they planted Iglesia Esperanza Viva (Living Hope Church) in a poor and marginalized community of Lima called Condevilla.

In 2016 Jim obtained his PhD in New Testament from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. This has helped to open new doors across Latin America for doing online conferences and courses as well as the many courses he teaches as he travels throughout the region.
