Guatemala and Belize are two places where our church serves people who have a significant economic vulnerability. In Guatemala, we work with our mission partner One More Child to minister to families in need through a J316 soccer camp and other creative methods at a ministry center operated by One More Child. In Belize, we work with Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus to serve families in need through medical trips, family trips, and men’s trips. Both trips are having a pretty awesome kingdom impact!
In Guatemala, we work with One More Child to minister to families through a J316 soccer camp. We also use this opportunity to equip local pastors to learn how to run these soccer camps in their own communities as a gospel outreach tool. The team in Guatemala will have a chance to serve these families in multiple ways. Most of the families will come together as a family, so some team members will have a great time playing with the kids too young for the soccer camp. Some team members will run the soccer camp itself. Other team members will take this time to minister to and serve the moms while they are there.
This trip is for everyone, but it is also one our student ministry serves. So, if you have a student ministry-age kid, check this out as an option for your family! Check out previous trips below.
In Belize, we work with Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus to minister to Belizean families. We have medical trips where people with (or without!) medical experience can come to help meet the physical needs of Belizean families. We have men’s trips where a team of guys will go help work on and update the Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus facilities. We also have family trips where the team will serve with Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus in a local school running a VBS-style camp for kids. This allows the team to share the gospel and have fun with tons of kids.
These trips are for everyone, but the family trip is also one our kids ministry serves. So, if you have a kids ministry-age kid, check this out as an option for your family! Check out previous trips below.
