God has given us a unique opportunity to partner with communities around the world through Food For The Hungry. He's invited us to join his mission of making disciples and making all thing new through Jesus. Our partnership is currently with a beatiful community in Ixconlaj, Guatemala. Everyone at Expedition Church can play a part in the transformation God is doing in this vunerable community. We have committed for the next 10 years to prayer, building relationships, leadership training, child and family development, spiritual development, economic development, community infrastucture, and more as part of a wholistic and sustainable strategy to erradicate extreme poverty from the community. If you want to be exposed to the incredible need and advocate for the people of Ixconlaj, this trip is for you.
This trip is for all people of all ages with ministry opportunities ranging from hands on service to relational ministry.
Preparations and the trip itself will be challenging, sometimes difficult, but very rewarding. There are many things we must do to effectively prepare ourselves.
Be assured, however, that God blesses those who sacrificially give. This trip demands that we all give more than average. We must give everything. If you do, it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Expedition Church is committed to building relationships that help end spiritual and material poverty in the lives of people in Ixconlaj, Guatemala. One of the best next steps you can take in your journey with Christ and our partnership with Ixconlaj is to visit the community. God changes our hearts as we see first hand the extreme poverty that He sees. Join a team on our next trip and experience what God is doing in Ixconlaj, Guatemala.
