Settlers Needed!

Short term

It takes a village to raise a child! This is an old saying but true in many ways. At times the church planting missionary families miss this so-called village environment. “Uncles and Aunts” and “Grandparents” are important and give balance to the church plant team as well as the young family serving.

We are looking for people who are willing to serve alongside the church planting team here in Portugal, and provide an emotional, practical and spiritual support for the younger families with children on the field.

If you ( and your husband/wife) have space in your hearts to love these families and their children, then please contact us. 

  • Time: 6 month -2 years
  • Location: Lisbon
  • Cost: you would have to raise funds
  • Requirements: a lot of love and patience ???? willingness to learn the language
