Short-Term Teams

Pastors' Retreat 2019 - June 27 - July 4, 2019

A group of 4 people came for the main purpose of reaching out and ministering to our pastors. They visited a number of our churches and shared in a service to the congregations. For 3 days we took all of our pastors and their wives, away to a hotel, and had a marvelous time. I try to do this every year. These pastors are so committed to what they do and they get so little monetary recompensation for their faithfulness. I truly admire them and count them as some of my heros in the faith. They may never have thier own radio or television broadcast but the Heavenly Father takes notes of all that they do. I think that this year's retreat was the best that we have had. Two speakers, Linus Vaughn and Mike Ritzman, from Tennessee, came to be the retreat speakers. Two ladies, Renee Clayton and Betty Caban, came to support and be true intercessors over all that was happening. This was the fourth time that Linus has come to reach out to our pastors and each time I see how much more open our pastors are to open up to them and share with them, ask for personal ministry and soak up the teachings. God moved in a marvelous way and really impacted the participants. I continue to get postitve feedback on how this retreat ministered to them. It is one of the deep desires of my heart, to build up these servants of the Lord. If you would like to help support this type of outreach, please let me know. We are already looking ahead to 2020 to hold out next one.

Send us your story...

Have you been on a short term trip to Guatemala in the last year or so?????? Write us and tell us how it impacted your life and how you enjoyed it! We would like to start a new area that shares these “testimonies” with others in the hopes of motivating them to come on a team. You first timers can identify with the fact that you just “don’t know what you are getting into” and there are always a lot of questions. You can also share how it really turned out and what kind of an experience it was for you. I know that these short term trips can absolutely change people’s lives! Will you help us to encourage others to take the step to have this experience????? Send your testimony to and let others be blessed through your experience!

I have been communicating with a few more groups that haven't set their dates yet, but want to encourage you to get your time slot set aside. These short term trips can impact their participants in a dramatic way. Take advantage of exposing your people to an opportunity to "experience missions"!
