With over 21 million people, Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world. Similar to other leading international cities, it is an increasingly secular, post-Christian city. Only two percent of the population is actively involved in evangelical churches. Accordingly, Mexico City is an important and strategic location for ministry outreach and mobilization efforts.
