Fort Mill - Colombia September 2017

Opportunity Overview

Welcome to the September 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:

SAM engages local church partners in the US to “go” and engage in ways that help accomplish the Mission’s purposes. As people participate in short-term teams, they also enter a cross-cultural discipleship context that brings significant life change, to the glory of God. We welcome you to join this short-term team or donate to enable this important ministry for others. This team will be lead by Will Uter and Brian Mullen and will be supporting the ministries of CENFOW and INDIEWACOL and furthering the work of forming a Wayuu pastors association. There will be a construction component to the trip. The team will be Uribia/desert-based, and the lodging is in hammocks, in a very rustic setting. 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 Alison.Gamble@foresthill.org

All forms can be scanned and e-mailed to Alison.Gamble@foresthill.org, given to your team leader, or mailed to:
