TIME’s Purpose-Connecting you to local churches where God is working
Logistics-Our passion at TIME is to take care of all the details so that you can focus on what God is calling you to do!
Transportation: Our TIME vans and buses are at your service to get you to where God is leading! No need to worry about how you’re going to get from here to there.
Housing: A good night’s rest is critical to being effective in the Lord’s work! We will house your group in our safe, comfortable facilities. We provide
Food: Our kitchen staff doesn’t make good food; they make GREAT food! Clean and fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy meats
Translation: While we will all speak Spanish in heaven, some of us need a little help here on earth! Our team of national volunteers and interns will make sure God’s message of love will be communicated through the people that you reach.
Construction: One of our goals is to help pastors and congregations provide for the physical needs of their church. Whether it’s painting and repairs or a larger construction project, our TIME team has the experience to get everyone involved, even if you’ve never picked up a hammer!
Ministry: God’s message of love can be communicated in many different ways, and he has given YOUR group gifts to do it! Opportunities through English summer camps, VBS, Sports Ministry, conferences and workshops for all age groups, street and park evangelism and more can help proclaim the Gospel. We are only limited by the creativity of your group and would love to make your ideas a reality. In addition, we also have prepackaged evangelistic programs to assist you and part of the experience we offer is training in sharing the gospel using a few specific tools!
Relationships: Whether its church partnerships or one-on-one connections we desire to help you make long-term relationships from short-term missions. Social media has made it possible to pray, disciple, or simply stay in touch with friends made overseas. Our TIME team would love to get to know you and encourage you in your faith walk, and we need encouragement and fellowship as well! Perhaps your church or group is looking for a long-term pastor and congregation to partner with. We would love to help facilitate that relationship!
Fun: Our founder, Zeral Brown had a saying, “Work hard, pray hard, play hard!” Serving the Lord is a joy and delight and we want you to experience that as well! We make time for our groups to experience the local culture through recreational excursions, games, and fellowship. Visit a waterfall, the local market, get ice cream or enjoy God’s creation in a mountain park! We’re here to make missions fun!
American Church Need
Kingdom Relationships/Fellowship with global believers: Just as Jesus
Exposure to global missions: Perhaps your church is seeking to serve beyond its local Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria and is looking for the ends of the earth! Perhaps you are seeking to send forth workers into the global harvest field. Let us show you what God is doing in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, and the many opportunities for Christian service. Missionaries are not all pastors and church planters, see how God can use your gifts to serve him in a world that needs him. Let God show your church or group that God is the same both at home and away. We all serve and worship an unchanging God. (Hebrews 13:8)
Passionate workers for local ministries: Our ministry founders, Zeral and Dorretta Brown, hoped that a mission’s trip would inspire participants to return to their home church and ministries and serve with increased vigor. If you can share the Gospel in a place where you don’t know the culture or language, why not in the mission field that is in your own back yard? We have heard countless stories of participants returning “home” with a passion for service in their own churches, families, schools, workplaces
National Pastor’s Need
To share God’s message to His people: Like other Christian pastors in America, our national Pastor Partners are driven by the Holy Spirit to share the Good News and shepherd their flock. Many are bi-vocational, meaning they work full-time jobs, sometimes five to six days a week to earn a living. Very few are able to live and support their families from church offerings. They need encouragement, discipleship, and occasional training. We have many methods to help our Pastor Partners share the Gospel-outreach through learning English, VBS, Shower truck outreach, sports ministry, discipleship, conferences, evangelistic campaigns, and more. Let TIME find a Pastor Partner for you!
Fellowship with global believers: Our national brothers and sisters also desire Kingdom relationships with American churches. It may be sharing culture, food, English, or new methods of reaching others with the Gospel. What can we learn from them and bring back to the American church?
Material resources: While our national Pastor Partners can be spiritually rich, in many
