From June 19-August 4, 2017, ReachGlobal is sending out teams of young adults (college age and post-grads) to locations around the world as part of our Apex mission program. Apex teams will integrate into the local ReachGlobal teams, serving alongside our missionaries while receiving training and equipping for future mission and ministry success.

Let us invest in you while you invest in the cities and countries that we call home.

Applications are due by April 2017 — however, the programs are first-come, first-serve and may fill up sooner. If God is calling you to go deeper into missions, don’t miss your opportunity to be part of His greater story in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Video: Trek7 – Drew’s Story

As we gear up for three Trek7 missions experiences for 2016 in Latin America and the Caribbean — Costa Rica, Haiti and Peru — let’s take a look back at a previous Trek7 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Trek7 provides college students and recent college grads with seven weeks of hands-on mission experience woven together with ministry training, spiritual mentoring, language learning and cultural immersion. It’s a challenge to get out of your comfort zone and put your faith into action.

Will you join us?

1) Global Fingerprints Coordinator. Global Fingerprints – Haiti is our growing child sponsorship program in the region of Port au Prince.  With more than 200 children currently sponsored, we need a U.S. coordinator (we currently have a capable logistics director overseeing the day-to-day operations of GF-Haiti).  As the program grows, the need for someone strong in church relations, vision casting and strategic decision-making with our Haitian partners will become more vital.

2) Youth-oriented leader (disciple-making and leadership development). More than half of all Haitians are under the age of 24, and as such, there are tremendous opportunities among our partners and in our target community for energetic leaders with gifts and skills working with both children and youths.

The United Nations directional team for rebuilding  Haiti coined a term for what they perceive as the long-term need in Haiti. That word is accompaniment.  It simply means walking with our brothers and sisters in a 15- to 20-year process. No, you don’t have to sign up for a 15-year commitment; but do you love youths and children?  Would you be committed to working with out team as we walk alongside them, all for the sake of gospel transformation?

3) Short-term interns. With myriad short-term teams coming from the U.S., Brazil, the Czech Republic and elsewhere, there are constant opportunities for people willing to serve for three to 12 months alongside our long-term staff in the coordination and hosting of short-term teams in Haiti.  In addition, internships in Haiti will provide opportunities to minister and serve with our partner ministries.
