The Volunteers in Mission (VIM) program is an initiative of the Guatemalan National Methodist Church offering opportunities for volunteers around the world. Since 1995 VIM has been hosting construction, educational and medical teams, providing an exciting experience of Guatemalan culture, hospitality and beauty.
As VIM serves all areas of the country, its ministry is vital to the lives of thousands. During your visit you can not only provide structural or physical improvements but also assist the church in ministries of compassion and evangelism and gain an understanding of the global church.
VIM teams have worked in Guatemala since the 1980’s, after a relationship was established with the General Board of Global Ministries following the 1976 earthquake that brought relief efforts to Guatemala. Over the years many volunteers have formed lasting friendships with Guatemalan Methodists, and have extended their help into areas beyond construction and medical/health programs.
The staff of the VIM program is dedicated to designing an international experience to fit the varied needs of each team. Direct communication with the Guatemala VIM office has been made possible through email, fax and telephone, to ensure every detail is taken care of efficiently and effectively. Join us as we express Christian love in action!
Note: Anyone wishing to organize and bring an UMVIM mission team to Guatemala must submit an application to Guatemala VIM.
