Teams of 8-10 are needed to conduct Backyard Bible Club ministry with younger children in the morning and older children in the afternoon (or vice versa, depending on school schedule) in strategic communities in Quetzaltenango. Other outreach ministries are possible, depending on the team’s giftedness, and could include sports ministry, music, ministry to women (teaching a craft or other skill), and ministry to men (based on men’s interest activity). Once team is formed, team leader will work out specific ministries with local missionary contacts.

NCBM will arrange for airfare, volunteer missionary insurance, and other logistics, including transportation to and from the airport, daily transportation, and lodging. Team will prepare breakfast at the Center, and prepare and take lunch with them daily, and prepare supper at the Center or eat out in restaurants some nights. Team will need to bring ministry supplies with them. Background checks will be required of any volunteer working with children. NCBM will send information concerning the background checks.
