For over 20 years Engage has had the privilege to partner with IberoAmerican Ministries (IAM) and the leaders of their Ecuadorian churches. IAM’s focus is on the local church as they work with teams of missionaries and national pastors to establish a movement of reproducing churches. In South America, they currently have planted churches in Chile, Ecuador, and Peru.
On this experience you will assist and encourage Ecuadorian churches both in urban and rural settings. You will be involved in community outreach with the churches through relationship building and a variety of children’s ministry. IAM has a school of 250 kids (1st-7th grades) and centers in the community for vulnerable children. You will travel to a couple of these locations and join with the local churches to teach Bible lessons to the kids as they hear the truth of the Gospel and how much the Father loves them. If the need is present you may also help with a variety of work projects to help advance the ministry.
Through learning and serving alongside several local pastors and church members, this experience provides an incredible opportunity to live life beside seasoned and true Kingdom workers.

Some trip locations are currently subject to Level 4 (Do Not Travel) Advisories from the CDC and/or Department of State. In some cases, the United States or the destination country may refuse to allow travel in or out. In that instance, participants will whenever possible be offered the opportunity to choose a different location/date (subject to change in cost) or divert funds raised to the following year. Funds given toward a short-term mission trip cannot be refunded to the intended participant or the giver.
