Opportunity Overview

New Pines is an evangelistic church and seminary located throughout the country of Cuba. The main seminary campus is in Santa Clara in the center of the island while the main church is located in Old Havana. The church is focused on making a social and cultural impact by serving the community. They have implemented projects and social programs in order to meet the people's basic necessities, intensifying the relationship between church and community, showing the love of God and reflecting the living gospel. While the seminary is focused on training up leaders and church planters to start new churches all over the island. The challenge is to contextualize the urban life needs to the truth of the gospel and adjust the structures to harmonize them. Reaching people from diverse social classes is not be an easy task. 

Come and join us in helping train and equip the students of the New Pines campus in Santa Clara and Havana. Our team will participate in a variety of projects including leadership training, social projects, labor needs and teaching seminars. Our ultimate goal is to encourage and equip the students and leaders we serve alongside of.
