Serve in Colombia with Young Life Expeditions

Colombia.jpgJoaquín Villena established Young Life in 2009. He first met the Lord through Young Life in Peru. After attending seminary, he ​became a pastor and spent years earning the right to be heard in the communities of Bogotá. The first Young Life leaders were kids from his church whom Joaquín released as ​missionaries into the communities. Today, Alejandro and Andrea Maldonado have undertaken the effort to further develop that first group of leaders and help them recruit their friends and peers. Joaquín still pastors his church and remains an active mentor over all Young Life's efforts in Bogotá. Together, the team has created a firm foundation on  which to continue an exciting and growing effort. 

​​The staff and volunteer leaders are available to host teams during the month of March and in June and July. Young Life Colombia hosts outreach camp in late June/early July and work group opportunities are available. 

Group Size: 
Five-15 persons, including leaders.
