Belize 2023

Let's go!

Christ Chapel’s College Ministry is going to serve and love the people of Belize! Our team will travel to the southern part of the country where our brothers and sisters are in need. We will be running a children’s program where we get to love kids as Christ does, and we’ll also get to tackle several construction projects to bless these people!

Evenings will be spent at our hotel, worshiping and bonding as a community. Days will be spent pouring out everything we have in the surrounding villages. It will be a trip that (most likely) changes your life!

FAQs

For questions you have that aren’t already answered within the steps above in “How To Go,” check these out:

We are closely monitoring the CDC and the State Department’s website as they will communicate any changes in regard to travel restrictions. As of right now, you must have a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 1 day of your travel date or 3 days if you are also vaccinated.

Yes. We will work hard to help anyone out who might need some financial assistance. Fill out this Financial Assistance Form and someone from the Christ Chapel College Ministry Staff will follow up. Our hope is that no one is prevented from coming on this life-changing trip simply because of money. So please let us know and we’ll do everything we can to help! 

We have been traveling to this same area of Belize since 2012 and we have never had a safety incident. Belize City is known for more crime; however, we spend the entire trip in the southern part of the country which has a much safer reputation. A few other reasons we feel safe is that we are always together in a large group, either working in a school or working on a construction project with the pastors who host us. We are also always back to the hotel before dark and the hotel is very nice and secured with guards and an entry gate for guests only.

We will have at least one official trip RN who is available to help take care of us, as well as a nearby reliable hospital. We will assess any and every injury/illness, and if it’s necessary we are able to fly any students back home.

We will depart Saturday morning, March 5 and return on Saturday evening March 12. We will be staying at Hopkins Bay Resort in the southern part of the country and will be working with several churches in the area. More specific details will be provided during the first trip meeting on January 23. Specific questions can be directed toward Ben Fuqua at 214-458-4404.
