  • Mexico STM Video: "Mexico 2016"
This STM is limited to those who both complete the application and who are approved to attend based on the standards set and Pastoral approval. We are limiting the number of participants with the understanding that this experience is not a normal retreat or VBS type event. This mission is an opportunity for followers of Christ, called by God to minister to the people of Mexico, to give of themselves and minister in ways they may never have before. It is not for everyone. Our request is that you pray about this, seek God's leading, and talk with your parents. Then should you ask for an application form from Deacon John and return it to Pastor Peter no later than Sunday April 30. Also parents are encouraged to go as counselors.
If you have any questions concerning any of the STM listed above, please contact Pastor Peter or Deacon John.
