Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina
Iglesia Evangélica Luterana Argentina (IELA)

Our church began November 1905 in Aldea San Juan, mostly among Russian-German immigrants. Today the work is done in Spanish. We have two emphases: Mission work: “Christ for all” and education to recover an evangelistic church. We also do social work in many places in Argentina. We own and operate one seminary and numerous colleges that have 4,200 students.
