Pastors: You want your youth group to feel like they matter. You want them to feel significant, empowered, and for their lives to count for something. You read about the way the followers of Jesus lived in the first century, and you long for that kind of life -- where living out your faith means hearing the voice of God and changing people’s lives.
You want to take your youth to the next level with God. You want changed lives.

Known as "The Land of Eternal Spring", Guatemala is rich in natural beauty—from the shores of Lake Atitlan, to the peaks of its 37 volcanoes, this Central American nation is one of the most beautiful in the world. But the true beauty of Guatemala is its people. Gripped by poverty, the people of Guatemala hunger for the Kingdom of God. The majority of Guatemalans practice a form of Catholicism, and it’s estimated many also mix in ancient tribal religions and cultural traditions into their faith.
Will you share the freedom of a relationship with Jesus in Guatemala?
While in Guatemala, you will serve in Antigua, and ministry opportunities include:
Relational Evangelism: You'll connect with people and learn their personal stories, and share your faith through the power of relationship.
Kids Ministry: You could do children's ministry in local villages and schools sharing the love of Christ through kids' favorite language: fun.
Community Outreach: You might share Christ at the city dump, one of the poorest areas of Guatemala, or you might do home visits in a community where families are barely making ends meet, typically living off of only $2 a day.
The vision behind the stove installation project is to see healing and restoration through community development. Many families cook over an open fire, putting women and children at risk of getting burned. The smoke produced by these fires damages the lungs of those within close proximity of the cooking site. We seek to install stoves in the homes of families with whom we have a relationship, to provide a personal element that opens the door for evangelism and discipleship.
During house visits with local families, we realized they did not use clean water when cooking or drinking. Children complained of upset stomachs which was a result of drinking unfiltered water. Clean water costs money and is not easily accessible. We now help provide families in need with clean water.
You'll get to sleep in bunk beds, take regular showers, and use western toilets. Electricity and spotty wifi are available as well as clean water.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in Guatemala?
Pray for Guatemala
For over twenty years Adventures has been sending short-term teams to serve the church in Guatemala. Now, we’re taking the next step of our investment into the Guatemalan church through the base. Adventures Guatemala comes alongside pastors and church leaders through discipleship, community development and activation of the local church to establish God’s Kingdom. We desire to see the men, women, and children of Guatemala reconciled to the love of God the Father, living out their God-given purposes.
