CONSTRUCTION

This ministry is becoming the most popular. It requires around 5 people that are knowledgeable in construction. They will place a floor or roof on a house. This is a huge blessing to those who have mud floors and no decent roof. Normally one project is completed each day and costs around $400 for each. So that is 4 projects for your trip with a budget of $1600. The supplies are bought in Honduras and Ignite is equipped with the tools.

KIDS BIBLE CLUB

This ministry consists of around 4-10 team members that divide into 3 Groups BIBLE LESSONS: There should be 4 different interactive lessons or group dramas with the Crucifixion on the last day. CRAFT: We ask that team provide all the supplies for 4 different easy crafts and have it coordinate with the daily lesson. RECREATION: Ignite will have someone in charge of this and will need participation from the team members.
