Youth Ministry El Sendero

Young Jesus followers can have a powerful influence as they carry the message of Jesus Christ. Our challenge is to reach young people between 15 and 25 years of age in creative ways through biblical reflection, sports and arts. We work in schools and universities, and we offer various activities in order to build young disciples of Christ who model a holistic, Christ-centred life in their communities.

Come and Serve

University workers to get alongside students in one of the least reached areas of Ecuador.
Youth worker to reach high school students (aged 15 to 18 years).
Using sports to reach young people for Christ (soccer, basketball, volleyball, hiking and more).
Using arts to reach young people for Christ (music, theater, dance, painting and more).

Prayers

1

Pray for new missionaries to help us reach young people between 15 and 18 years old.

2

Pray that young believers will live as disciples of Jesus Christ in their local communities.

3

Pray for the financial resources necessary to implement all our activities.
