What's Included

Overview

Small groups will join together to help build a large Education and Evangelism Center for a new primary school near Dolega, Panama. The Education and Evangelism Center is a large building with 10 classrooms, a gymnasium/auditorium, offices, and bathroom. This school will be the only private school in that specific region, and the only one teaching Christian values. It is sure to make a big impact in the community. In addition to laying block on the large school facility, volunteers will also conduct local community outreach such as children’s ministry programs and health education.

The Multiple Group Project is an opportunity for small teams of 15 or less to experience a Maranatha mission project and train the leaders to head a project in the future. Participants with experience as a cook, spiritual leader, construction superintendent, team medic, children’s ministry leader, etc, are needed and will easily be integrated into overall group activities. All teams will join together for a large group experience while maintaining the intimacy of their own small group. Small groups may come from schools, churches, families, work groups, or other entities.

Small Group leaders will be able to register on this page. If you are an individual who is joining a small group or would like to join this trip without a group, please review the information brochure and contact your group leader or Maranatha for a different registration link.
