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.

See the map below to learn where our partners are located in Belize.

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, Belize

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.

Our HOPE initiatives are programs and projects undertaken by our local partners with the aim of inspiring HOPE in the people they serve. Bold Hope comes alongside the long-term vision of these faithful men and women to provide financial assistance as well as support in the form of short-term mission teams. Group mission trips to Belize are great ways to help make our initiatives a reality while helping spread positivity. Learn more about our initiatives below.

Education

Educational Programs

Belize provides the unique opportunity for teams to go into public schools and present the gospel through skits, music, crafts, etc. We encourage teachers by praying for them, helping with lesson prep work, and doing whatever else they may need. Belizean teachers are talented, intelligent individuals who may benefit from additional training on a variety of topics. Current and retired teachers can use their expertise to pour into the lives of these dedicated men and women.

Medical Care

Medical Care

Belize is a largely rural nation whose population is rather spread out. Our medical teams provide care in communities where access is limited or unaffordable; sometimes even conducting home visits for those who are shut in. For families who find medical care beyond their means, teams who come with donations of medicine and supplies are greatly appreciated. Bold Hope also seeks to educate the community on general health or sanitation and offer specific training on topics like first aid.

Community Outreach

Outreach

Community Outreach

Our local ministry partners make building lasting relationships a priority. Much of what is considered “community outreach” is simply having fun with the locals. When their kids are engaged in soccer, jump rope, tag, etc. parents enjoy coming out to watch, which leads to openings for conversation and gospel presentations. Soccer is the most widely played sport in Belize, however cricket, basketball, netball and volleyball are also popular. Sports ministry is a great way to develop relationships within a community, no matter what the ages. Are you a skilled athlete? We would love to set up a sports clinic to train athletes in Belize.

Development

Community Development

Missionaries/pastors and school administrators often don’t have the budget for repairs or updates. Our teams are able to contribute to the ongoing upkeep of a mission site, church, or school, or help with bigger projects as needed. Similarly, there are often many needs within a community that are unable to be completed due to lack of finances or labor. Teams commonly provide both. Bus stops, basketball courts or playgrounds add value and  impact many within a community.

Children

Children's Ministry

Children are a big focus of the ministry in Belize. Depending on the time of year, teams may have the opportunity to go into a local school (or schools) and present the gospel through skits, music, crafts, etc. During the summer, our local ministry partners run camps where teams are able to build relationships with the same kids all week. Whether ministering to kids at school or at camp, it’s important to help meet their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs. Making sure they get to eat lunch all week is a huge blessing. Teams may do things such as prepare the food, serve the meal, and clean up afterwards.

Church Partnerships

Church programs such as Bible studies, worship nights, and outreach events are a great way to initiate a connection with the people of Belize. Long-term relationships tend to make the biggest impact on individuals’ lives; discipleship and mentorship play a significant role in seeing lives transformed for Jesus Christ. We believe strongly in the power of prayer, and encourage teams to get to know more about the community by walking through the villages and praying over the homes and people there. We do all of this in support of the local church. Another way we come alongside these congregations to see their visions furthered is through pastor/leadership training.

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.
