Working with Salvadoran Mission Projects (SMP)

Click here to visit the SMP website!


This trip is being led by Rev. Amanda Gordon and is a wonderful opportunity for members of United Methodist Churches in the Senatobia District to participate in an international mission trip. This will be our second year to go to El Salvador. Last year, we had a team of 15 representing 7 churches in our district.

You are encouraged to visit the Salvadoran Mission Projects website to learn more about the wonderful ministry they are doing in El Salvador. Our team will help on a construction project (either working on a church or home) and will also participate in the Feeding and Evangelism Ministry, plus possibly lead a Vacation Bible School if there is enough interest.

Please prayerfully consider applying to be a part of the team. Space is limited to 20 participants and your application and $250 deposit is due by January 30 to be considered. Please view the flyer and application below for more information.

For more information, please call 662-781-1333 or email Rev. Amanda Gordon, Team Leader & Pastor at Minor Memorial UMC
