What We Provide
Our desire is for your mission trip to be rewarding to you and fruitful for the kingdom of God. This only happens if the Holy Spirit is at work throughout the process. We pray that for each team. In addition, there are some practical things that NCBM provide that helps make the experience a positive one:
Trip Support: NCBM Staff secure airline tickets and volunteer missionary insurance for your team. You will also be provided with an orientation manual prior to your trip. If teams wish, an orientation session can also be arranged.
Mike and Ginger Greene serve as our on-site coordinators in Honduras year-round. The Greenes work with Honduran pastors to secure projects that meet our mission goals of showing God's love, reaching the lost for Christ, and strengthening the local church. They also make sure everything is ready for when your team arrives, including transportation, food, lodging, materials, tools, etc. Please remember the Greenes in your prayers!
NCBM has a 36 acre campus, just north of Choluteca, which serves as the team's base of operations for the week. Known as Mount Horeb Baptist Camp, the ministry center includes a large dormitory with sleeping facilities for male and female, spacious bathroom and shower facility, and laundry room. A dining room/kitchen provides meal, meeting, and ministry preparation space for the team. The fenced property also includes the coordinator's house, a guard house, a pulperia (snack and crafts shop), and several small houses for Honduran workers. The sleeping quarters are air-conditioned and have wall fans. Linens, towels, and pillows are provided.
Teams are safely transported in a large air-conditioned van that has plenty of room for the team. Team luggage and supplies are transported in a Kia pick-up. We also own a Land Cruiser for teams who may serve in more remote areas, and a pickup used by the on-site coordinators. Our coordinators or a Honduran driver will transport teams.
Our on-site coordinators will make sure that materials have been ordered and are on-site when your team arrives. They also work with the host church to have members at the site to work with the team in mixing "mud", laying block, or whatever else needs doing. A Honduran construction manager will be on site to direct the work of the team and church members. We also provide a translator to be on-site with your team. Honduran employees work at the ministry center, preparing meals, cleaning, providing security, and otherwise helping to make your stay a pleasant one.
