Ministry Opportunities

Ministry Name:
 
Missionary Assist Panama (MAP)
 
Ministry Leader/BBF Contact:
Yvonne Oldenburg
 
What We Do:
 
We are volunteers who assist BBF and other ministries and pastors, spreading the Gospel.  We minister to Ngabe Indians, Panamanians, and ex-patriots.  Besides contributing towards meeting physical and practical needs, we supply Bibles, Christian tracts, media, learning aids, and do some Bible teaching.  We form relationships and attract people to church services where we know the Word of God will be preached.  We distribute things that people donate for us to give to various ministries that can use them.
 
How you can get involved:
 
Pray that we are led and protected by the Holy Spirit.  You can help by volunteering for construction, donation sorting, and food prep for the food ministry.  If you are good with teaching children, we can help find placement for you from various ministries with this need.  If you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle you can help transport volunteers and event supplies.

Ministry Name:
Hurting World Ministries-Canas Verdes
 
Ministry Leader/BBF Contact:
Gary Bottema
 
What We Do:
 
Over 6 years ago we started this outreach to the Ngobe Bugle Indians in the township of Canas Verdes. We appointed a couple as pastors while we continued to build the Worship Center. Our mission is to reach all 100 families on the mountain with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many families on the mountain take advantage of our free Christian school and feeding program.
 
How you can get involved:
 
The families in Canas Verdes have many needs. Health, dental, vision and good nutrition. These families have very small incomes, so shoes, clothing and hygiene products are always welcome. During our current construction, skilled workers are needed. Volunteers at the primary school would be a big help for the teachers.
 
Ministry Name:
The Bridge
 
Ministry Leader/BBF Contact:  
Darrell & Denise Eash
 
What We Do:
 
Our main focus is disciple-making, where we take the hand of other believers, walk beside them, and “teach them to obey everything Christ has commanded.”  This is the part of the Great Commission that is often overlooked.  Discipleship is accomplished through one-on-one mentoring and by launching and multiplying both English and Spanish small-group Bible studies.  We are passionate about building a bridge between belief in Christ and maturity in Christ.  Salvation is not the end; it’s just the beginning!
 
How you can get involved:
 
Financial donations; Prayer support for the Holy Spirit to lead us in the groups we start, give us wisdom to accurately teach God’s Word, and bring spiritual growth to those who participate; Sign up for our monthly newsletter.
