Serving in Colombia
When we moved to Chicago, we knew that it would be temporary. Our hearts have always been drawn to serving abroad, especially in Colombia. In January 2012 our family of four moved to Medellin to serve with the Covenant Church of Colombia.
We are partnering with the Colombian Covenant Church in church planting and leadership development. This is truly the intersecting of our passions and gifts. God is at work in Colombia doing amazing things and we are so excited to be a part it!
How we are serving?
We are serving in Colombia as project missionaries with the Evangelical Covenant Church, with a commitment to serve there at least 5 years.
We are living in Medellin and meeting regularly with a core group of people with the vision of being a church community that engages young adults and university students. This group meets to grow deeper in God’s word and to be equipped to share their faith with others both in word and action, living out the gospel in their schools, families, neighborhoods and places of employment.
In addition to working with this particular church plant, we are serving as church planting catalysts in general, as the vision of the Covenant is to train more leaders and plant more churches so that the good news of Jesus continues to be shared in more communities around the country. We regularly visit other church plants and work with them to train their core team of leaders.
We are partnering with the Covenant church in other cities of Colombia in the process of formation and preparation of grass-roots leaders in the areas of: leadership development, children’s and youth ministry, and theological education.
