Philosophy of Ministry
We have discovered that short-term mission teams can play a vital role in fulfilling the Great Commission when linked up with long-term missionaries. Over our 22 years of mission experience with short-term mission teams, we have put together a multifaceted ministry schedule that produces genuine results. As a result, we are constantly asked by churches in Mexico if we can send them a mission team. We have developed this philosophy of ministry as a result of seeking advice from national pastors, from reading extensively about missiology, from our experience as missionaries, and from working with short-term mission teams. Over the years the pastors and churches in Mexico have grown to trust, respect and seek out our ministry. Our prayer is that God might touch your heart and that you'd come serve with us. We really need you! Our philosophy of ministry focuses on linking up short-term mission teams with specially chosen churches in Mexico. Through these churches, short-term mission teams do their ministries & outreaches. By strengthening and working through the local church, the fruit of a short-term mission team remains long after they're gone. This is our philosophy of ministry that ensures maximum fruit and impact. Our long-term missionaries will select the church you'll serve at and assist you during your stay in Mexico.

Family Mission Team Testimonies
In 1992, we were youth pastors at Family Church in Sutherlin, OR, and were encouraged to take our students on a mission trip to Mexico. After a couple years of investigating the options, we finally put the pieces together in 1994 to go on our first ever mission trip. We went to the Valley of San Quintin in Baja California, Mexico, which is located about 4 hours south of San Diego. What an experience it was!
At that time, we had been youth pastors for about five years and had done all we knew to build genuine growth and depth into our student's lives. However, nothing compared to the results our first mission trip yielded. As a result, we were hooked and from then on a mission trip for our students became an annual event we made a priority. One year our students came back from a mission trip so motivated that they said to themselves, “If we can do outreach in Mexico, why can’t we do it in our own area and among our own peers?” They were off and running and started a student outreach to their own peers on a weekday evening at our church. It was called, “Righteous Everlasting Truth.” Pretty powerful name! It grew to around 40-50 in weekly attendance and was completely student led. They’d share their testimonies, have Bible Studies, and etc. It lasted for several years until the main core graduated from high school and moved on.
Because these mission trips were so powerful and life-changing for our students, we began leading family mission trips for our adults and families of the church. Then we began leading a mission trip for our college age group as well. God was working mightily and we even began a Hispanic Outreach at our church. We also began holding pastor’s conferences in Mexico and built many relationships with pastors and churches which we retain to this day.
During these years of leading mission trips to Mexico, God gave us a deep passion for the people, the language and how we could serve Him in Mexico. Little did we know that God had a master plan for us and would eventually lead us to Mexico to serve as long-term missionaries. In the meantime, we led 2-3 mission trips to Mexico from 1994 to 1998. In December of 1997, the time came when the Lord clearly led us to establish a ministry in Mexico called, “Go Missions to Mexico”. In 1998 we began the process of establishing the ministry and building the mission base which is located on about 10 acres in the same San Quintin Valley of Mexico where we did our first mission trip. Today the mission base is quite large and beautiful and can accommodate 230 in beds and over 500 if camping is desired. It has 4 separate facility tracts so we can host at least 4 short term mission teams at a time.
We’re in our 19th year living and serving in Mexico and see ourselves here for the long haul. We serve around 150 churches in our area of Mexico and many of these churches ask us to send them a mission team. In many cases, we just don’t receive enough short term mission teams to be able to send a team to each church who asks. Our prayer is that God would touch the hearts of His people so they would come down and serve. In addition to our short-term mission ministry, we also hold pastor’s conferences, provide pastor and leader training seminars, preach at many churches, have a pastor and church loaning library, and provide counseling and help for pastors.
We rejoice in all God has done in our lives and ministry and give Him all the praise and glory! “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” 2 Cor. 4:7
