Guatemala Mission Trip


June 3 – June 10, 2023

It gives us great joy to offer our Guatemala mission trip once again this year: an intergenerational trip where we get to work with some of the most marginalized families in Guatemala on (June 3 - June 10). This will be a mission trip that is accessible and meaningful for intergenerational participants. Adults, children, seniors, married couples and singles are all welcome and needed!


Guatemala is a beautiful country with a rich cultural history. Our team will be working with Potter’s House (, Christ Church’s first Global Partner. Potter’s House began their work in Guatemala City serving a population of 11,000 people, 6,500 of whom are children, who live in and off the city dump, scavenging for food and goods that can be sold. Potter’s House has been serving the poorest of the poor and marginalized of Guatemala for 30 years. They are now identifying other parts of the country with great need, and expanding their programs to these areas. We will serve alongside them and strengthen their ministries.


Our teams will spend most of the week in Chiquimula. Chiquimula is a town in southeast Guatemala. It is seated in the center of a large and impoverished agricultural area. Here Potter’s House is in the process of developing strong community partners, implementing programs, and is planning to build a community center in the next few years. Our team will be vital in supporting their long-term work and making relational connections.
