Short Term Missions

Global Service Opportunities

One of our core values is Glocal Service and one of the ways that Jericho Ridge is living this out is by inviting you to invest in two key international ministries.

Guatemala

Each year, JRCC sends a serving team to this central american country to serve with our partners, Bethel Ministries.  

JRCC is sending our 10th team to Guatemala this March 11-19! The focus of the trip is to share the love of Jesus through actions, specifically to orphans, widows, the physically challenged and poor families. The team will build 1 or 2 small homes and distribute food and clothing to families in need with the main focus of the trip being a wheelchair distribution for those with mobility challenges. 

Here's a glimpse from last year of how our 2016 team shared the love of God with others during their one-week stay:

We need you to partner with us in prayer! Please pray for our team members that will be traveling to Guatemala this spring and those in Guatemala that they will be serving.

If you have any questions about the Guatemala trip or would like more information on how you can financially support our Guatemala 2017 projects please contact Tammy Smethurst ( )  

 

 Tanzania

In 2013, Under The Same Sun (UTSS) & Jericho Ridge hosted the first-ever summer camp for children with albinism in Tanzania, East Africa. It was deemed a strong success and this summer (July 14-27, 2016), we sent a group of volunteers from JRCC and other local churches to invest two weeks in July serving and learning alongside UTSS Tanzania staff, local university students and a partner church (BMCC) in Mwanza, Tanzania for a repeat of summer camp for approximately 170 children with albinism.  Here's a video highlighting the work...

If you have any questions about the Tanzania trip or would like more information on how you can support or participate in the ongoing work of Under The Same Sun, please e-mail Brad Sumner.
