Overview

The Multiple Group Project is an opportunity for small teams of 15 or less to experience a Maranatha mission project and train leaders to coordinate a project in the future. Volunteers experienced in construction, the medical field, cooking, children’s ministry and outreach are needed on this trip, and unexperienced volunteers are also welcome to learn new skills! 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 groups on this project will join together to help build a new church near Santa Cruz, Bolivia. In addition to the block work at the church they will also work in other nearby communities, pouring the floor and foundation for another church and possibly painting a church already completed by Maranatha. Depending on the number of volunteers on the project there may also be opportunities to conduct local community outreach such as children’s ministry programs, medical clinics, and health education.

This group gives preference to small groups, but there is often a few spots available for individuals. Once registration is open, small group leaders will be able to register on this page. Individuals will need to contact Maranatha to be added to a waiting list and then will be given spots once we determine availability. For now, add yourself to the interest list and we’ll send you more information as soon as it’s available.
