Fort Mill - Colombia August 2017

Opportunity Overview

Welcome to the August 2017 Forest Hill Colombia Trip page!

Our group from Forest Hill Church Fort Mill will be traveling to Colombia to work with South America Mission (SAM), a Forest Hill AIM Partner that has been working to see the Church of Jesus Christ multiplied and transforming communities in South America for more than a century. SAM’s missionary community and partners work to share the gospel, reproduce authentic disciples of Jesus, plant churches, train leaders and equip God’s people to minister transformationally.

Trip Focus:

Alongside our church global partner, South American Mission, we will support Foundation Comunidad Viva and Ciudad Corazon located in an urban outreach environment in Bogota. Our team will serve with locals working on improvement projects for orphan ministry facilities, community center improvements, and neighborhood garden projects.  We will also facilitate a children’s ministry project. Most importantly, we will have the opportunity to share in the love of Jesus through the building of relationships. This trip will be forming with leadership from the Fort Mill campus and team meetings will be held in the Fort Mill area.

If you have any questions, please email GoGlobal Trip Coordinator, Alison Gamble at
