Iglesia Reformada Impacto

Country: 
USA
Location: 
Pittsburg, Texas

Iglesia Reformada Impacto, a church plant in northeastern Texas, has about 60 members and is growing rapidly. Their mission is to reach the Spanish-speaking population, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ and training people in Reformed theology. However, their church building is not in good shape. You can help repair the building so that ministry in Pittsburg can thrive!

Opportunity type: 
Group
Student
Volunteer opportunities: 

Volunteers are needed to make repairs on the church building and help protect it from somewhat harsh weather conditions. Possible projects include roofing, flooring, bathroom repairs, painting, and general building repairs, both inside and out. Groups should include at least one skilled person who can delegate work to others. 

Accommodations: 

Groups will either stay in the neighboring parsonage (two bedrooms, two living rooms) or sleep in the church building. The church has concrete floors, so sleeping bags with mats or air mattresses will be needed. Food will be prepared on-site by the church members.

Group size - maximum: 
30
Cost notes: 

Volunteers are responsible for their own travel costs and for bringing building materials for the projects they work on.

Packing suggestions: 

If your group is sleeping in the church, sleeping bags with mats or air mattresses will be needed. Clothing and shoes appropriate for construction projects is necessary. If your group members have tools they can bring along, this will be helpful as well.

Free day suggestions: 

Dallas is an hour and 45 minutes away from the church. Go exploring or spend a day at Six Flags Over Texas amusement park.

Qualifications: 

Both youth and adults are welcome. The group should have at least one person who is skilled in construction and is able to teach the team how to do tasks and will delegate tasks. Specific skills that could be used for different projects are roofing, flooring (including concrete work), electrical, plumbing and bathroom repair, and painting. Projects can be selected to fit your group’s size and skill level.
