Nathaniel is a Peruvian-American, third-generation missionary to Peru. Growing up in the Andes of Peru, Nathaniel knew from a young age that he was called to be a missionary. In 2005 he obtained his B.A. in biblical and theological studies from Covenant College and in 2010 his M. Div. from Westminster Seminary in California. He is an ordained minister in the Iglesia Evangelica Presbiteriana y Reformada en el Peru giving him a unique position to train up leaders throughout Peru.
Alicia has a B.A. in English and literature from Covenant College. Alicia grew up in Tacoma, Wash., and was raised in a Christian home by parents who are also in the ministry. It wasn’t until meeting Nathaniel that Alicia felt called to missions. Her first trip with Nathaniel to Peru forever changed her call to missions when her heart was won over by the people of Peru.
After eight years of Hispanic ministry, the Gutierrez family and their teammates began a new work for MTW in Arequipa, Peru’s second largest city. Together they work to establish Christ-centered churches and leaders in an area resistant to the gospel. Please pray and consider supporting this new work in Peru.
