Honduras Missions

God gave the vision of a Honduras Mission to Sandtown in 2004, and the first team went in June, 2005. Bringing back heart wretching pictures of poverty, along with enthusiastic praise for how God was moving to bring many to Christ during the mission, another vision was given - namely building houses as a way to open the door of their heart for evangelism. We wanted to build earthly homes that they might see how much God loved them, so they would desire an eternal home. Thus, the "jelly house" ministry was launched. One member of The Bible Sunday School Class makes homemade jam and jelly and sells it to finance the building of a house each year since 2005. In fact, this year two houses will be built. 

In addition to sending a team to Honduras to build a house each year, they also participate in medical teams, vacation bible school for the children, bible studies for the women, the Jesus film at night, as well as giving out seven or eight boxes of bibles. The Bible Class sends money to buy beds, a table and chairs, and cooking utensils for the family receiving the "jelly house."  We also establish food accounts for families who are starving at the nearest village store for food for 6 months, or until we come again. Going to the same general area of about 6 villages, the team has established love and trust among the people and many have not only come to Christ, but are participating in discipling others. Our prayer is that through the Honduras missions, much fruit will remain.  


Kairos is a Christian ministry that seeks to transform the environment inside prisons and to support the incarcerated in creating and sustaining strong, supportive Christian communities within the prison. Kairos works to achieve this goal by conducting two weekend-long retreats, modeled after the Cursillo movement, each year in each prison and through monthly reunions and weekly small group meetings. You may serve on a retreat team that will be trained and prepared using time proven methods before entering the prison for a weekend. Or, you may be part of the group who support the retreat team without entering the prison. Kairos Outside ministry, which serves female family members of incarcerated individuals and takes place entirely outside the prison environment, also needs volunteers.

Community Outreach

Here at Sandtown, we believe that both local and foreign missions are equally important. Throughout the year we search for opportunities to impact our community for Christ. Through outreaches such as the Harvest Festival, God's Closet, Drive-Through Nativity, Revival Events, and so much more, we strive to live out the Great Commission both home and abroad.
