UCC Conference Ministers and Board Members Scheduled to Travel to Haiti and Colombia
The second of five commemorative global mission trips in observance of 200 years of global mission, will take place December 7 – 17, 2010. The trips are partially funded and sponsored by the UCC’s Wider Church Ministries especially for conference ministers and UCC Global Ministries Board members. The trips to each of the five regions of our global mission work, Latin America, Southern Asia, East Asia and the Middle East, occur in 2010, through 2012.
A group of nine, led by Felix Ortiz, Global Ministries Executive for Latin America and the Caribbean, will travel to Haiti and Colombia to visit global partners and many mission projects. The group, made up of Conference ministers, Board members and staff will document their experiences in writing and photographs. They hope to express a sense of the inspiration, power and challenges they expect to encounter on their pilgrimage.
