Bringing the Gospel to Belize
Once again, we are introducing three modest ministries taking place in the villages of Belize. All three churches are seeking partners ready to share the word by reaching out to the surrounding communities. They are eager for help and prayerfully awaiting a partner. Please read their stories and consider serving in Belize.

Located in the heart of Belize, Armenia Village is surrounded by Mayan ruins and diverse in landscape. It is here that pastor Rene Najera has been leading Life Ministries for 14 years, while also working in agriculture to support his family. Active in the local community, the 25 person congregation already has a food ministry and hand out school supplies to kids in need. Within the church, they have a women’s and men’s ministry, prayer group, and youth group.
