Ministry Focus:

The ministry options in Puerto Rico are endless. Everyone in our group, no matter how young or not so young, can use his or her talents to make a difference. Our mission trip could include construction, children's ministry, evangelism, youth ministry, and countless other possibilities as we go about making disciples for the glory of God. Regardless, a local pastor, church, community will be blessed in a tangible and God glorifying way.

Country Description:

Puerto Rico is an island group that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and other smaller islands. It is located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the US Virgin Islands. Because of its proximity to the United States and the fact that your team does not need passports to travel there, Puerto Rico serves as a perfect first step into the world of international missions. Puerto Rico is a wonderful place to experience a rich culture and serve among a people with a great passion for the Lord.

Columbus discovered the islands during his 2nd voyage to the New World in 1493. Spanish colonization began in 1508 and in 1898, after 400 years of colonial rule by Spain, Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States as a result of the Spanish-American war. In 1917, Puerto Ricans were granted US citizenship. Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the US.
