WINNING SOULS ~ TRANSFORMING LIVES ~ IMPACTING CULTURE
Bethshean Mexico Mission began 50 years ago in the village of Estancia de Animas, Zacatecas. During this time, it has grown into multiple ministries that are reaching out into Central Mexico and inviting people to experience the richness of life in Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to spread wide this invitation, to offer opportunities for each person to grow and mature in Christ, and to have a Kingdom impact upon our culture.
La Palma, or Joshua tree, is found all over the surrounding region. Like the many branches of this tree, Bethshean Mexico Mission reaches out in many ways to serve the people of central Mexico.
Our vision is to plant a Christian Church in each of the many villages and towns throughout Zacatecas, who do not have one. Currently, we support six pastors who are leading congregations and developing strong faith communities. As we continue developing pastors who are qualified to preach and lead, we long to expand, planting many more healthy congregations throughout Central Mexico.
CAMP & CONFERENCE CENTER
The Bethshean Camp and Conference Center has become a primary training ground for Christian discipleship, biblical education and pastoral training, youth and family camp, college-level seminars, retreats for men, women, and married couples. This beautiful facility can house 100 people in private rooms and dorms, can accommodate up to 300 people for daily conferences, and is well situated for worship, indoor and outdoor recreation, and many other activities.
The Bethshean Medical Clinic has been under construction, using volunteer teams, for the past several years and is nearing completion. This 10,000-square-foot facility will be home to medical, dental, and optometry patients, with plans to open a small surgical suite. We are thrilled about the spiritual, physical, and economic opportunities this will bring to Central Mexico as we partner with local medical personnel, as well as physicians and nurses from the States.
Since 1974, the Bethshean Nursing Home has cared for elderly adults who have no one else to care for them. As James 1:27 points out, God desires for us to care for the widow and the orphan. Bethshean Nursing Home is the only evangelical elderly care facility in the nation. Bible studies, Sunday services, physical activities are part of weekly life as we care for “the least of these.”
