Youth Ministry - Ecuador


Youth Ministry - Ecuador

The Latin America region has a vision to transform lives in dynamic communities. As an intern, you'll serve in your area of focus while being part of localized summer ministry experiences. You'll also be poured into by a team of missionaries as you learn more about your gifts and passions. Our hope for the internship experience is that you will grow in your relationship with God, expand your skill set, be more prepared to disciple people from other cultures, and perhaps discern a long-term call to missions and ministry.

Lugar de Shalom, also known as Camp Pallatanga, is a camp in central Ecuador. The camp has the capacity of 120 campers and is used for many different ministries, including retreats, training retreats, pastor retreats, and different activities of national churches. You will work alongside with groups as they come or as there are retreats. The living arrangements will be in the camp in a dorm type situation. You will have the opportunity to not only work with the OMS missionaries on the field but work with national workers as they bring groups.
