Matthew 28:19-20 tells us to "Go and make disciples of all nations..." and at Timberlake we're doing what we can to live out The Great Commission. We have a heart for people and a passion for ministry in not only local efforts through summer camps and hosting ministry events at our Camp and Conference Center, but through regularly going and serving those internationally. Throughout the year, we coordinate short term International Mission Trips to work with the people of El Salvador by helping with physical labor and construction projects, ministering to children and families through backyard Bible clubs, and worshipping with local residents.
Timberlake has partnered with Iglesia Bautista Internacional (aka The Buffalo Church) in Mejicanos, El Salvador. They are a growing Baptist Church with a heart for ministering to the community around them. In February 2015 they opened Samuel Christian School to give the poorest of the poor the best education they could get. While Jeremy Burns and his family have participated in several international mission trips since 2013 in Guatemala and El Salvador, they lead their first trip to El Salvador through Timberlake Ministries in October 2015. Each mission trip is a little different, but we always work with the locals in building new homes or ongoing construction at the church or school, and host a VBS program for any children that may be in the area. We feel the most important aspect of a mission trip is the relationships we build with the locals while we are there. We have found that our love for Jesus is a universal language.
If you have a heart for missions, and taking the gospel to other parts of the world, we'd love to have you join our team. By joining our existing mission opportunities, you'll have not only an opportunity to reach out to others with the love of Christ, but you'll have the peace of mind in knowing that you're travel arrangements, safety, insurance, and trip details will be arranged for you by Timberlake Ministries.
