About Step Teams

Step is Latin Link’s short-term mission programme for teams. Whether you're looking to go volunteer as part of a team for 3 weeks or 3 months, Step provides an unforgettable way to serve God and his church in Latin America.

Step teams share God’s love in a very tangible way as they live and work alongside Latin Americans, offering their support through practical and community-based projects. We send teams each year in the spring and summer, and also provide the opportunity for you to take a team from your church or CU.

The aims of Step

Whether helping children at risk in Guatemala or building a church in Brazil, the aim of Step is to:

  • Share and show the love of God by serving the Latin American Church through a practical or community-based project.
  • Encourage individuals to grow in their faith and to seek God’s purpose for their life as they serve cross-culturally.
  • Enthuse individuals with the desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through both word and deed whether at home or in another country.
  • Support the Latin American Church in their ongoing ministry in Latin America and worldwide, while actively seeking to learn from them.
