Guatemala Partnership

For two years, members of our congregation faithfully considered a new partnership in Guatemala that could provide for face-to-face relationships with shorter travel distances and opportunities to invest in justice-focused mission work.

In 2018, the team discerned that First Pres would partner in Guatemala with a network of young adults who work in grassroots, holistic ministry in their local communities. These brothers and sisters focus on creating new, local opportunities for Guatemalans that can alleviate poverty and hopelessness and help to deter migration. Some of the exciting avenues our partners are exploring to create change in Guatemala include

  • a formal entrepreneurship program that has spawned an income-generating water treatment plant;
  • one-to-one ministry with families;
  • a Compassion International Child Development Center;
  • and more.
