Mission Work

Cusco Ministry*

While abroad, students will be partnered with a Mission Mentor who will help them get involved with ministry opportunities and connect them with a local church and the Christian community in Cusco. Students will meet regularly with their Mission Mentor for prayer, reflection, and spiritual accountability; the spiritual support and opportunities will make their time abroad transformational!

Ministry options have included teaching English classes at churches and schools, serving orphanages, and other youth activities. Students will get to learn and serve with the local Mission Mentor, Joy Allen. Joy and her husband, Jordan, have been serving in Cusco for over 10 years working with children and young adults! Students may also partner with La Union Iglesia Cristiana and their young adult ministry. 

The International Mission/Service-Learning Practicum will enhance and help students internalize their experience, and provides a great opportunity to reinforce cross-cultural missions, and earn college credit. The course formalizes the student's 7-10 hours of ministry including: reflection activities, journal entries, and cultural research. 

 

Blog Post from Cusco Veritas student

Written by Audrey Beathard

"I loved the ministry that I got to be apart of here. I taught English classes at the church two times a week with a full-time missionary and then I went to Sion which is an after-school program for the kids in this impoverished area every Friday.

I feel greatly impacted by my time here. I think that this was an amazing experience that God allowed me to have and I am so grateful for the experiences I’ve had here. My Missions Mentor was amazing to me and to all of us on the program. She not only gave us an opportunity to get involved with the church that her husband is a pastor at but she was also caring and loving to us and always pouring into us."
