EMPOWERING LOCAL LEADERS TO DISCIPLE THEIR COMMUNITY

FOR GENERATIONAL FREEDOM IN CHRIST

​​​FOR THE LOVE OF MISSIONS

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT IN GUATEMALA CITY


COLLABORATION IN THE COMMUNITY
ORIGIN OF THE PROGRAM:


As we listened to the local leaders, we heard there was a problem of space, trust and collaboration. Ministries needed space to minister. Organizations, churches and ministries needed space to meet and allow trust to grow between the leaders. The leaders from the different neighborhoods surrounding the garbage dump needed space to gather and grow. We take the stewardship of our building seriously and have been blessed as we offer the space as God directs.
