Puerto Escondido, Mexico
We invite you to be a part of what God is doing in Puerto Escondido through the ministry of The Velasquez Family called El Faro. El Faro Ministries has many facets of ministry, but everything we do is intentionally directed toward glorifying God and making disciples within the community.
Our home is currently the base for this ministry where weekly Bible studies are held, prayer meetings, youth events and discipleship. We host short term mission teams annually, assist the local Surf community, as well as coordinate and run an annual Christmas outreach on the main beach. We use these opportunities to live out the Gospel and bring Jesus to Puerto locals as well as travelers from all over the world.
Home Team Leader:
Adam and Sarah
Adam was able to use the skills and position God had given him to follow their calling to the Middle East. The family arrived in December of 2012 and are making the transition to a new culture, home, job, and way of life. They're hope is to be a bright light for Jesus Christ among the families they are building relationships with.
Home Team Leader:
Tom Sheck serves as the Area Representative for the greater South Bay/Beach Cities area. He has the exciting opportunity to establish and cultivate relationships with students, athletes and coaches on High School and Middle School campuses for the purpose of presenting the Gospel. While meeting with students during lunch time, he helps support, train and mentor the club leaders with the goal of impacting their campus for Christ. He also works with the club advisor (teachers of campus) to facilitate the overall club development and growth focusing on leadership development.
