Serving on a short-term mission team will help you take the gospel to your neighborhood in South Florida. Here’s how: we want churches in other countries to be strengthened and start new churches. Our short-term teams are trained to assist churches in reaching every neighborhood in their country. When you return, your cross-cultural experience and meaningful service will give you more confidence and effectiveness in sharing the gospel with your multi-generational and multicultural neighbors.
We will engage the Panamanian people by:
- Training working class Spanish churches as they engage their neighborhoods with the gospel.
- Interacting with English-speaking Panamanians looking for ways to turn everyday conversations into gospel conversations.
- Assisting an inner-city school and adult education ministry, including opportunities for construction work.
You will experience a new culture and explore God’s call to missional living. This is a great opportunity to take the whole family on a mission trip.
Trip Dates: June 2 - 8 | July 29 - August 5 | September 16 - September 21 (+3)
The Mixtec live in the mountains of Southern Mexico and are the largest unreached people group in the Americas. Less than 1% of the 167,000 people who live in 150 villages profess to follow Jesus. Our goal is to see a church started in each village.
These people are geographically isolated and most only speak an indigenous dialect called Mixtec. They have lived in spiritual bondage for centuries. They fear the spirit world, their neighbors, and breaking the customs their people have held for centuries. Family Church is presently training bilingual (Spanish and Mixtec) pastors and leaders to reach their community and neighboring villages with the power of the gospel.
There will be 4 trips to this region in 2017. These trips are presently limited to those who speak Spanish or who are exploring a call to be a career missionary.
Approximate Cost: $500-900
