What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Home In Progress

As an intern with Casas por Cristo, you will play a vital role in this ministry and have a life-changing experience. We offer a great program that allows you an opportunity to become involved in mission work, impacting hundreds of lives. You'll work directly with families in need, other interns, and available teams of volunteers as you build partnerships that give families homes and an opportunity to know the love of Jesus in a very real and tangible way.

As an intern, you will spend the first three weeks of your summer doing on-site training. After this, you will be partnered with other interns to build homes and lead available teams through the building process. When available you will be guiding a team through the Casas por Cristo experience – helping them navigate the city they’re in, introducing them to the family they are going to serve, directing them through the building process, and problem solving on the work site. You will also have the opportunity to share your testimony with your teams and other interns as you facilitate their mission's experience. There will be several weeks that you will not be leading a team of volunteers. During those weeks you will be partnering with your fellow interns to build a home for a family. The experiences you will have will be a tremendous opportunity for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.

Mission Trip Offered By Casas por Cristo

We began building homes along the U.S. / Mxico border in 1993, first in Ciudad Jurez. We have since expanded to Ciudad Acua, Mxico; San Raymundo, Guatemala; Santiago, Dominican Republic; and Chinandega, Nicaragua. To date, we have provided over 5,000 families with homes. We are dedicated to meeting the physical need of better housing as a way of also meeting the spiritual need for Jesus Christ.
