Location: Colombia, Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Darren and Patty McCrea's work in Colombia is multi-faceted and includes missionary training and church mobilization. They also help coordinate missions teams through a partnership with International Teams:
Their ministry includes:
• Training Latino missionaries, many of whom will be ministering in closed nations.
• Mobilization means organizing events like community and medical outreaches and raising up local Christians to serve. Their heart is to see Colombians reaching Colombians!
• International Short Term Outreach Teams help build up local churches through construction projects 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.
Ministry History: Darren, a Canadian, has ministered in Colombia since 1995. Patty is Colombian and a teacher with a specialty in Child Psychology. She has served in missions since 1993. They have two wonderful boys James and Darien.
