Trip Focus: Youth and Soccer Camp Outreach (Student ministry team - High School)

OHC teams partner with Conectar Global, a digital and youth discipleship ministry in Colombia. They will arrange a 3-day overnight sports and VBS camp with vulnerable youth from the area. Many of these children have never participated in such a camp. Our team will focus on building relationships through sports, games, arts and crafts, small group times, drama, worship and Bible teaching. We will also help organize two evangelistic festivals in nearby towns, with games, worship and fun activities. This will be our fourth year to send a team to Colombia.
