Our Partners in Belize
Belize is a small country, and we cover a lot of ground there. Thanks to our partners in five different parts of the country, we can bring relief to people in the surrounding communities. From building chicken coops and restoring playgrounds to providing medical clinics and providing food to those in need, each location has unique goals. When you take a Belize mission trip, you can be a part of the work in these locations.
Bold Hope trips to Belize allow you to meet new people as well as connect with and empower them. We also recognize the personal impact that can come from visiting a new culture and stepping outside of your bubble. Whether you're helping to construct a school or serving children their meals, your work will change you just as much as it impacts those you're helping.
Belize Missions Opportunities
Our trips happen all year, so your church group or family can schedule a time that works best. These are also short-term trips for a week — that's only one week of your life dedicated to helping those in need living in Belize. Our Bold Hope team members will help you get adjusted and engage with the surrounding communities.

What Do We Do in Belize?
Almost half of Belize's population lives below the national poverty line, which makes our work even more important. Churches and ministries across the country can take on a Belize mission project with one of our in-country partners to help make an impact. For example, some of our partners have opened their church doors to the villages in the surrounding areas to give people the HOPE they need. Other partners have worked with schools or established youth ministry programs.
Each of our partners does as much as they can with the time, energy and resources they have available. Keep reading to learn more about how every one makes a difference in their location.
Bermudian Landing, Belize
The Belize River Valley is composed of seven rural villages. This area in Belize is well known for the private landowners’ efforts to protect the Black Howler Monkey. In the midst of these villages is the Belize River Valley Church in Bermudian Landing. Pastor Floyd Bood answered the call of God on his life to go and serve this community with his wife Dhalia and their family in 2006. Pastor Bood and his church council have a big vision for the community and the surrounding villages in the Belize River Valley area. The church serves as a beacon of HOPE and acceptance as its eyes are focused outside its walls and onto the communities at large.
San Antonio, Belize
Located in the western mountains of the Cayo district is the beautiful Mayan & Hispanic village of San Antonio. San Antonio is mainly a farming village; it produces most, if not all, of the peanuts consumed in Belize! San Antonio saw a mighty revival a couple of years ago, and since then seven Pentecostal churches have kept the flame lit for the village. These seven churches formed a small association in the village from which the Pentecostal Primary School was born. They are now aspiring to start a high school, as the village does not have one. The Christian churches in San Antonio stand united to work to accomplish tasks great and small for its children and adults. San Antonio welcomes any type of aid from the outside as long as it is in the best interest of their community members.
Blackman Eddy, Belize
Our missionary partners John and Beate are deeply committed to seeing youth dedicate their lives to the Lord and change the trajectory of their futures. Through youth camps, discipleship, and vocational training they aim to inspire young Belizeans to live differently. They also partner with a local school in a community of primarily Guatemalan migrants. Despite being distant from local conveniences and severely underfunded, the school is run by educators who are genuinely invested in the children of La Gracia. Our partnership aims to empower John, Beate, and their team to do even more.
Caye Caulker, Belize
Located just a 45-minute boat ride from the mainland, this sand street island has about 1,200 residents who depend heavily on tourism. But, Caye Caulker is much more than sand, wind, and beach. Pastor Oscar (assisted by his wife, daughter, and 3 children) leads a children's ministry for the local children living on the island. The program is often hosted on the beach or just in Pastor's backyard. The heavy party scene on Caye Caulker makes Pastor Oscar especially desperate to see its children live their lives for Jesus Christ as a means of resisting that temptation.
Sarteneja is a primarily Hispanic community on the rural northern coast of Belize. It is a united village that survives mainly from tourism and fishing; it is Belize’s largest fishing community. The church in Sarteneja is very passionate about reaching the lost and helping people discover true meaning for their lives. Pastor Rodriguez is a humble man with a genuine heart to see the church be a means of inspiring HOPE in their community. He serves among a group of committed believers who dedicate their time, effort and energy to see the village of Sarteneja revived for God’s glory.
Belize Hope Initiatives
HOPE initiatives in Belize aim to inspire HOPE in the entire community through various projects and programs that our local and missionary partners have undertaken. Bold Hope focuses on coming alongside the long-term vision of these faithful men and women by providing financial support as well as encouragement in the form of short-term teams.
Why Partner With Bold Hope?
Bold Hope offers mission trips to help people foster connections with others in the world. However, we facilitate more than precious connections and rewarding experiences. Many organizations are unable to provide comfortable accommodations to volunteer groups. At Bold Hope, we ensure our mission trip opportunities are comfortable with secure accommodations, access to amenities and reliable resources. We place our groups in hotels, offer three meals a day and have a staff member available at all times.
We understand that traveling to a new country is an exciting and scary experience. That's why we provide as much assistance to your group as we can, so you can focus on helping those in Belize. With the proper accommodations and amenities, you can bring your entire family or church group on one of our Belize mission trips.
