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.
