Team Members with Guatemalan kids

Short-Term Mission Teams

Through our Short-Term Mission Teams, you can make a Long-Term Impact!

Our short-term mission teams participate in furthering Impact Ministries’ 15+ years of community involvement in developing Christian schools, providing local outreach programs, and planting churches. Years of hardship have prepared the hearts of the Guatemalan people, and they are hungry for the truth of Jesus Christ. Many people have already experienced long-term life-changing effects of our short-term mission teams.  Who knows, the life you impact just might be your own!

What Will We Do?

In addition to a variety of cultural activities designed to further your understanding of God’s work in Guatemala, you will also work alongside the staff of Impact Ministries and participate in a variety of community outreach projects:

  • children’s ministry
  • construction projects
  • evangelism outreach
  • home visits
  • devotionals and prayer ministry

Impact Ministries has been hosting short-term mission teams from schools, churches and communities across Canada and the US since 2000. Once a team has been formed, we work with the team leader to develop a ministry agenda that uses the team’s unique gifting and abilities.  For more information, please contact us at teams@impactministries.ca.

Medical groups serve in our clinic and/or provide much needed health care in remote mountain villages.

How can I go?

You can form your own team, or join one of the Impact Ministries-organized teams. Already have a team?  Apply today!

Form your own Team

Most of our teams are organized by schools, churches or special interest groups who want to serve together through Impact Ministries in Guatemala. If you’re interested in putting together a team, contact our teams coordinator at teams@impactministries.ca to start the conversation.

Medical Teams

Medical and Dental professionals, please check out our Short-Term Medical Teams page for information on how to lead, schedule or join a medical team.

Sponsorship / Family Team

Each year, Impact Ministries coordinates a Sponsorship / Family Team. This team is open to anyone who supports a class or sponsors a child through Impact Ministries and would like to visit their child or class. It’s also ideal for any families who would like to participate together in a short-term mission trip to Guatemala. Contact teams@impactministries.ca for more info or to put your name on the 2018 interest list.

Seniors Trip

This trip is open to anyone who is over 55 but is young at heart and able to travel and get around on their own. Spouses, adult children, and friends who aren’t 55 yet are also welcome! Contact teams@impactministries.ca  to put your name on an interest list to be notified when the next seniors trip is being coordinated.
