Our Mission

Through relationship, humility, and compassion we strive to break the barrier of religion and bring light into dark places. Our hope is to RAIZ up and empower children and local leaders in their own communities and grow the Kingdom of God.

What We Do

Focusing in the Latin American and Caribbean Countries, we help to empower impoverished communities through compassion, providing for physical needs, emotional support, and education. RAIZ means ROOT in Spanish. We study each area to find the ROOT cause of physical, social, and spiritual issues to develop a skilled team that best meets the needs of the people. We are a cultural sensitive, Christian, Bible Teaching, Non-profit Ministry.

Have a Mission Trip Planned?

We teach cultural training for church teams planning a trip.

So many times, missions groups go into the field unprepared in cultural sensitivity and appropriate interactions. Sometimes, unaware, mission groups hurt rather than help. We help prepare your group by providing education and training on topics such as:

  • Cultural Beliefs & Customs

  • Appropriate Dress & Interactions

  • Servant Leadership

  • Mission Fails

  • Make Best Use of Resources & Time

  • What to Bring & Leave at Home 

  • International Travel Tips
