SEND 20 – Recap

This semester we wanted to make an impact in our world through our partnership with a seminary in Guatemala, called SETECA. So we made a goal to provide 20 scholarships for students to afford Seminary training in order to be equipped and sent out to impact the world!

This goal had us both excited and nervous. We feared that our goal was to high or our timeframe was too short. But thanks to YOUR generosity, we were able to afford more than 20 scholarships!

Here are some of the students we were able to help:

We wanted to give you a look at some of the specific students we empowered through SEND20:

Meet Diego:

Diego came to the seminary “SETECA” from Ecuador. Last year he served as the student body president. This year he is studying in Masters of Theology program. Diego feels God’s calling to do church leadership training in the rural areas of Ecuador. Because of SEND20, we were not only able to make an impact in Guatemala, but also in the future of Ecuador!

Meet Raul & Angela:

Raul & Angela came to SETECA from Spain. Angela is studying counseling and Raul is studying Bible. Raul is involved in a teaching ministry in their local church. They both serve in pastoral care with SETECA married students that live on campus. They are seeking GOd’s will as to where He would have them minister upon graduation.

Meet Elizabeth:

Elizabeth came to SETECA with her family from Bolivia. She is studying Counseling. Alberto, her husband, also studied at SETECA and is currently pastoring a church in Guatemala City. Elizabeth has a passion for children and has started a club for kids on Saturdays with children from low income situations. Elizabeth plans to continue using her counseling and teaching abilities along with her husband in ministry!

 

Meet Loida:

Loida’s parents are SETECA alumni. Loida is from Guatemala but lived for several years in Spain where her parents are serving as missionaries. Loida is studying Bible in the masters program. She has a love for languages and feels God is leading her to do Bible translation!


As you can tell, together as Overflow, we were able to come together and bless college students at SETECA to make an impact all across the world! Thank you so much for you generosity and please join us in continuing to pray for these individuals and what God is doing in and through our ministry partner SETECA!

Guatemala 2017

Every Spring Break we send a team of college students to a seminary we partner with in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Each year we have an incredible experience learning more about our team, about Guatemalan culture, and what God is doing in Central America through our ministry partners and- in affect- all over the world! This year was no exception. Check out a video recapping this year’s mission trip filmed by our students, Kenneth Freyer.

SEND 20 – Overflow Giving Project

New Graphic.001

This semester we desire to make an impact in our world through our partnership with a seminary in Guatemala, called SETECA! You and I may never make it to the cities of Argentina, or the villages of Ecuador, or the towns of Nicaragua to share the love of Jesus… but there are people who God has called and who desire to do that very thing. Many of them desire to be trained and equipped for that task, but for some the ability to pay for that training is not even possible.

This semester we want to make that possible. We want to provide 20 scholarships for students to afford Seminary training in order to be equipped and sent out to impact the world! And all we have to do is give.

Individually, it would be difficult to SEND 20, but if every student at Overflow donated $20 ($5 for every Tuesday in February) we can reach our goal! Let’s come together and make a small sacrifice to make a huge impact in our world!

Guatemala- Spring Break Mission

“I think the role of college students in the mission field is to go. Go where they can make a difference by serving people and loving people. Go and share their faith- the story of God’s work in their lives. I think college students have an endless opportunity to serve on the mission field finding purpose and mission in sharing Christ with the people they come in contact with.” -Clay Everett

Every year, we have the opportunity to go and serve in Guatemala over Spring Break!

On our trip, we will focus on:

  • Serving the community and families of Guatemala City and Antigua
  • Serving a local seminary, “SETECA” and their students who are already working and building relationships in the community
  • Growing in our walks with God and in relationships with our team

During the week we will have the chance love on children in the community while sharing the message of God’s love. We’ll have the chance to hear from and meet some of SETECA’s students and see firsthand how they are ministering to their city. And last but not least, we will grow as a mission team, seeking God in all we do, and hearing how God has worked in our lives personally.

It is an intense week filled with vulnerability, early mornings, and hard work, but it is more than worth it to see God’s love in a new light, share His victorious message, and come away burdened for His people!

We head out on March 5th, 2016, and will arrive back in Wilmington on March 12th. We are so excited about this trip! We would love if you would partner with us praying for our team as we prepare and go to Guatemala this year! Almost all of our spots are now full, but if you are interested or have any questions, please contact Alissa.MacLean@portcitychurch.org.

Alexus McGriff’s Baptism Story

Baptisms are one of our favorite things we do at Overflow! To hear how God has worked in a person’s life, bringing them to new life in Christ is always incredible and impactful.

Alexus’ baptism was no exception. Check out her story above to hear how God brought her to this point of publicly confessing her faith in Christ and her decision to commit her life to Him!
