The most personal way to be a part of what CrossCulture Jesus is doing is by joining our team for short or long term missions or by bringing a mission team. See below for more details.

If you come, consider our “Bring-a-Bag” program: each missionary brings a suitcase for himself and one filled with donations for the children. Contact us for a complete list of what the ministry needs.

  • Mission Teams and Missionaries


If you desire a unique missionary experience which includes total immersion in the Guatemalan culture, becoming involved in a local church, and being infused with even more passion for the Lord, then consider joining the CrossCulture Jesus team for a short or long term basis.

As a missionary you will daily interact with the Guatemalan culture as you run personal and ministry errands, take the public transportation, and occasionally attend social and cultural events. Learn even more about the Guatemalan culture as you help prepare typical Guatemalan foods in our kitchen. Challenge your Spanish skills by taking part in dramas, skits, puppet shows, and other activities.

Our missionaries are given the opportunity to accompany the Brazos Abiertos Outreach Team and participate in ministry at a variety of locations such as orphanages, jails, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, feeding programs, villages, Bible Clubs, and home visits. At each location the short and long term missionaries are asked to take an active role as our staff mentors them in the different aspects of ministry at each site.

The CrossCulture Jesus mission program is designed to meet the needs of those who feel called into full-time missions as well as young people who are looking for a summer adventure serving the Lord. The cost of joining our missions program is $45/weekly. This fee includes housing, lunch from Monday through Friday, transportation to and from ministry sites, exposure and training in various ministry settings, and exposure to Guatemalan culture. We advise all missionaries to bring at least $175 per month for personal expenses, transportation, and meals not included in the fee. You must be 18 years or older to apply.

On-line applications must be received at least 30 days prior to expected arrival date. Space is limited so apply now!


Mission teams are the highlight of our year. We love interacting with groups of people with a like heart to serve God and bless people. From street dramas to crusades, from puppet skits to construction, from medical missions to VBS, each team has a purpose. Bring a team to work with us. We need your help to reach the lost and to show God’s love in a tangible way to many hurting children.

With more than a decade of experience planning and executing mission trips, CCJ can help you plan a life-changing experience for your church or organization. Large and small teams can be accommodated. Contact us to get started or for additional information.
