Serving in Mexico is an excellent first step if you have never been out of the country for reasons other than vacation or business. It can help make serving on an overseas team a little easier and open your heart and eyes to how others live. It is helpful to experience a different culture, gain new experiences and live in conditions unlike your own before serving on a longer Global Outreach team. Mexico trips also cost less and have a shorter time commitment.
Mexico teams are a fun and safe way for you and your family to serve and grow together. Mexico teams provide an opportunity to teach your children about serving others, being selfless and help them to develop a heart for outreach at a young age.
MINISTRY PARTNER INFORMATION:
Fuente de Vida (Spring of Life) Church is a thriving community of believers in Guadalajara, Mexico and led by Pastors Oscar and Gustavo. The metropolitan area of Guadalajara is the 2ndlargest city in Mexico with almost 5 million people. Teams will partner with Fuente de Vida and some of their many existing ministries including youth ministry, evangelism, local outreach, women’s and men’s groups and more! They also have other partnerships in the community. Teams who serve alongside them may perform work projects and children’s ministry at orphanages, evangelism in neighborhood outreach programs, minor work projects and other evangelistic events.
These teams will be smaller and have a certain number of spots reserved for first-time team members.

INDIVIDUAL MINISTRY TEAMS
Many Water of Life ministries also partner with Global Outreach to send their own teams to our partners in Mexico. Each ministry group works with the Global Outreach Department to coordinate their trip and plan what type of ministry their team will do. A few of the ministries that serve regularly in Mexico are Pure, Activate, Positively Engaging, Water of Life Christian School and School of Ministry. Connect with each ministry to see when their specific trip dates are.
These teams fill up quickly, especially around Easter and Christmas. Please prepare to join as early as possible.
