Q&A are part of the Camino Global family!
We had the opportunity to complete the Candidate Assessment and Orientation at the Camino Global headquarters in Dallas, Texas during the first week of November. From the very beginning, we felt that the people we met were a new and easy extension of our church family. The Lord certainly led us to Camino, and we are thrilled to continue our journey toward becoming full-time missionaries in Colombia with them.
Just a few reasons we love the Camino Global organization:
- Their legacy: Camino Global was founded in 1890 as Central American Mission, which transitioned to CAM International as ministry fields branched into other parts of the world. The most recent name change occurred in 2012, to better reflect the goals of the organization.
- Their flexibility and creativity: Camino Global missionaries are involved in traditional ministries like church planting and seminary-level teaching. They are also involved in unique projects like directing a Gospel Choir (Spain), starting a crisis pregnancy center (Colombia), and mobilizing Spanish-speaking missionaries from Central and South America to Asia and the Middle East (Guatemala). Camino Global allows its missionaries to be creative and use their unique talents to share Christ’s love across cultures.
- Their vision for the future: Camino Global is interested in seeing missionaries sent “from everywhere to everywhere.” There is an intentional and strategic commitment to a future in which multi-national, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural teams of missionaries work together to spread the Gospel around the world.
- Their obvious love for Christ and His bride, the church. Enough said.
The main question we hear now is, “So, what’s next?”
- We will participate in a workshop designed to train individuals who will work in full-time ministry to find ministry partners who will support them prayerfully and financially.
- We are planning our initial visit to Colombia to meet the missionaries already working there, and to see first-hand how our skills and talents could be used to support and grow the work of the local church.
- We will work on building relationships with ministry partners.
Once we are 80% funded, we will spend approximately 10 weeks at the Center for Intercultural Training in North Carolina, where we will prepare ourselves to work cross-culturally.
