From "For" to "With"
Our outreach ministries are designed around a framework called ACTS. Through the ACTS process, we help the underserved in our community and around the world find hope in ways that promote dignity, build strong relationships and bring to life the God-given gifts of all people.Learn More
Impacting our world
Relationships are an important part of everything we do, including global outreach. We've spent years developing specific partnerships around the world so our short-term mission trips have a greater and longer-lasting impact on the international communities we serve. Though our trips are specialized, you don't have to have a medical, business or construction background to participate. If you have a heart for God's people, we have a way you can make a difference.
For over a decade, we’ve partnered with Bongolo Hospital to provide physical and spiritual healing to thousands of people, and to train African doctors to become surgeons. We send medical specialists, usually 1-2 surgeons, multiple times a year to help assist with training, and we work with the hospital to equip its facilities and provide medical equipment.

El Puembo Church
We began a partnership with the Cumbaya Church in Quito, Ecuador in 2003. Now, we send teams of people to work with El Puembo Church, a Cumbaya church plant, to provide basic health care for underserved children, teens and adults, with nearly 2,000 patients each trip. This is a great opportunity for doctors, dentists and nurses, but there are a number of ways you can serve without a medical background.
Our students participate on Team Quito, alternating between our students going to Ecuador and their students coming here. Together, the students outreach through vacation Bible school programs, sports camps and light construction at a local church.
