Service Learning Groups
Come serve with UrbanPromise Honduras through our Service Learning Groups Program! We love to have mission groups from churches, schools, businesses or even families come and minister to the children and youth of Copán, Honduras through our programs. Come for a week or longer and assist us in running our programs, experience Honduran culture and be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world. Opportunities are available throughout the year for those looking for a missions partnership, a working vacation or a spring or summer break trip. Past groups have joined us from New Jersey, South Carolina, Texas, California, Vancouver, and London, Ontario.
2017 is now open for booking; come serve with us and #EncounterPromise! Dates are filling up - if you would like to come serve please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The focus for our groups is two-fold:
1. Service: The Gospel calls us to a life of service, thus imitating Jesus Christ who "took on the form of a servant" [Philippians 2:7]. We believe that in humbling ourselves and practically loving others, we love God too. This means putting others' needs before yours, being stretched out of your comfort zone, and depending on God.
2. Learning: This simply means putting aside one’s desire to be right, and coming with an open mind and teachable spirit. It is imperative to recognize that Honduran and Western cultures are different, and that neither is inherently right or wrong. Many times it is from the unlikeliest of sources that God speaks to our hearts and shapes our minds.
The cost is $850 per person per week, which includes your accommodation, all meals, transportation and excursions, but excludes your airfare.
Mornings are typically filled with staff and group devotionals and excursions to local attractions including the Mayan Ruins and the Bird Park. Afternoons are spent supporting and leading a variety of activities, games or classes at our After School Programs: Camp Hope and Camp Agape. Evenings may include Youth Ministry nights, soccer games with our youth and experiencing a local church service.
