Reaching the Unreached
Our Expedition family is passionate about getting the Gospel to those that don’t have access to it. Did you know that according to Joshua Project there are 17,000 people groups throughout the world, and that 7,000 of them are considered to be unreached with the Gospel? The Great Commission calls us to “go and make disciples of all nations.” The Great Commandment calls us to first “Love the Lord your God …” and secondly to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Those two combined are the basis for our Missions and our Outreach. We are devoted to partnering with amd contributing to those that are doing this work.
Expedition Church partners with Food for the Hungry to help provide spiritual and material resources to communities suffering from extreme poverty.
After a very successful 10-year relationship with a village in Rwanda, we are now working to support the people of Ixconlaj, Guatemala by helping them meet basic needs such as access to education, improved nutrition, and better medical care. For our first project, we funded the building of several new classrooms by members of the community who volunteered their time.
Most recently, we helped fund a project to place flocks of chickens with 45 vulnerable families. These families, selected by local community leaders, built the required chicken coops and participated in trainings on proper care of their flocks. The recipient families benefit nutritionally from the addition of eggs to their diet. Surplus eggs can also be shared or sold to neighbors, increasing the positive impact.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

Through Food for the Hungry Child Sponsorships you can contribute directly to community transformation. Expedition Church members currently sponsor over 100 children in Ixconlaj! Sponsorship costs $38 per month and those funds are used to meet the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of children and families in the community.

Another way to get involved in our partnership with Ixconlaj is to visit the community. God changes our hearts as we witness the extreme poverty He sees. Join us on our next trip to experience what God is doing firsthand. We are working to put together a trip in spring of 2023. Updates to follow!
