How You’ll Serve

Your service in Cusco will be coordinated through local indigenous churches. Your team could be helping to add space to their existing church buildings, or making minor repairs. Your week will also include relational ministry opportunities such as ministry to the elderly, and Bible school options for local children. Projects vary depending on coordination and on the ground needs of local ministry partners. Bring a heart to serve and learn! 

You will be serving alongside a Quechua women named Marcelina Huamán Chavéz. Marcelina is a pastor of an Assembly of God congregation in Tinta, Perú. Her church is located next the main plaza in the center of Tinta. She ministers to many of the pastors and their small congregation located in the high Andean region around Cusco.

Program

In 2022 Group Mission Trips will be calling everyone to Go Serve. On each trip, we will focus on God’s call on us to serve in freedom. We will discover that Jesus is the reason we serve. We will learn that serving is a way to give praise to God. We will challenge ourselves to serve even when no one notices. We will remember that the ultimate example of service is Jesus’ humility and willingness to die for us. And we will discover that God blesses us when we serve.

Join us for next summer and answer the call – Go Serve!
