We’re so excited to introduce you to Dr. Chris Brandenburg and his wife Rachel, who have recently come on staff with Impact Ministries.
Rachel will be serving as our Missions Engagement Coordinator, fostering new and existing church and donor partnerships, planning our Impact Events, and representing Impact Ministries at conferences and church events. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Chris will be pioneering the role of Medical Engagement Coordinator for Impact Ministries. Our clinic has served our school children and their families for years, and we’ve welcomed medical professionals from Canada, the US, and other parts of Guatemala to provide health and dental care in our community.
Dr. Chris will be connecting with doctors, dentists, and other medical professionals as we hope to grow this area of ministry. If you’d like to learn more or contact Dr. Chris directly, feel free to email him at email@example.com.
Please pray for the Brandenburgs as they settle into their new roles on the Impact team!
Impact Ministries is all about growing godly leaders! Often, we think that only means training Guatemalans for leadership – but we grow godly leaders as we impact North American Christians for world missions too!
That’s why we’re so excited to announce the launch of the VIDA School of Discipleship!
It’s a chance for North Americans to spend 3 months in Guatemala for an incredible discipleship adventure, followed by 9 months of continued mentorship back home.
VIDA means “life” in Spanish. It’s also a beautiful acronym that summarizes the goals for the VIDA School of Discipleship:
Vision – Seeing the world as God sees it
Impact – Living life intentionally
Delight – Experiencing intimacy with Jesus
Adventure – To follow Jesus is to risk
Our VIDA participants will live in intentional community while in Guatemala, learning and exploring what stepping out for God can look like. They’ll engage in our Vida Schools, in local churches, and with the local community.
Back home, participants will live out their transformation and continue to connect with their class and their mentors via weekly phone calls and online meetings.
If you know anyone who might be interested – or if you’d just like some more info – check out www.impactminusa.org/schoolofdiscipleship. We’re currently accepting applications for the first two sessions, scheduled for January & May 2022.
Please pray with us that God will use the VIDA School of Discipleship to grow disciples who follow Jesus anywhere, anytime and at any cost!
