TIME Ministries is focused on building and growing lifelong relationships between people of all ages across Haiti, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and America. Our lives have been forever changed as we’ve come to know and love our global neighbors and we desire others to experience these life changing experiences.

Our goal is to connect American churches with local churches in different countries through short term mission trips. We offer an all-inclusive services so teams, families, and small groups can focus on being present by building relationships with the communities they are in.

Leadership/Intern Program

TIME believes in equipping and empowering individuals to live life on mission for Christ. Our leadership training program takes individuals from intern to lead missionary and prepares them with skills and knowledge to advance the kingdom of God through missions.

“For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10


TIME has a full menu of trusted church partners in the DR , Mexico, Haiti and Cuba to choose a long term ministry partnership,  for a long lasting and sustained Christ Centered work.

God is so gracious to TIME, he has supplied many pastors and friends who are dedicated and spreading the Gospel. TIME can match you  up with a proven ministry partner on your short term missions trip to ensure a long term work in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ!


Over the years we have had many tell how remarkable their trips were and how the trip was so much more than missions.

TIME Sports Director

I loved going on TIME trips to Monterrey when I was in high school and college. I am where I am today because of the work that HE did when I was there at the age of 14. I knew at the end of my first trip that I would someday be in this work full-time. Today my husband and family are in East Asia.

It’s been four weeks. Wow, I miss it every single day. But, I’m SO grateful for this incredible, freedom-filled experience. There are no words to explain how much this place and these people have impacted my life. The Lord is so good!! What an authentic, loving, joy-filled, raw, vulnerable, goofy, wise community God brought into my life! Thanks, Time Ministries for welcoming me, encouraging me and making me feel right at home! Thanks for letting me be a part of your ministry and mission! Blessed to be able to call y’all family! Each and every one of you have touched my heart! To my team, time ministries, Iglesia Bautista, the kiddos, and el Nombre de Jesús, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I can’t begin to express how much you guys all mean to me. Each and every single one of you are incredible, compassionate people and are so extremely loved. Thanks for all the laughs, the worship, the tears, the prayers, the Spanish lessons, and again for all the laughs! It was so humbling to see God at work!! Can’t wait to continue doing the Lord’s work wherever He calls me! Much love for all of you!!”
