Location: Colombia, Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Darren and Patty McCrea's work in Colombia is multi-faceted.
Their ministry includes:
• Training Latino missionaries, many of whom will be ministering in closed nations.
• Mobilization - this means organizing events like community and medical outreaches and raising up local Christians to serve. Their heart is to see Colombians reaching Colombians!
• Receiving International Short-Term Outreach Teams. These teams help to build up local churches through construction projects, evangelism and training. Team members have opportunities to love needy children and to share the Gospel in schools, shopping malls and other public venues.
In Colombia, Darren and Patty work in partnership with Mobile Teams, Youth With A Mission (YWAM), Bogota. Through their outreaches they touch the lives of tens of thousands of people each year.
