For the past 25 years, Forge has been sending international mission teams to countries in various locations throughout the world in fulfillment of their mission and vision to raise up “Kingdom Laborers” who are challenged, equipped and mobilized to follow Jesus and his example to make disciples who make disciples. Most of Forge’s international teams engage the international mission field as part of an intensive discipleship training program that is headquartered from Denver, CO.
Teams usually consist of young adult students from across the U.S. and from other international locations. Forge provides biblical training, team building, stateside and international ministry opportunities and a life-planning process that launches them back into their local communities. Forge uses sports as a platform to communicate the gospel message to indigenous people groups and are asking CrossTraining via the Timothy Project for help in equipping their teams.
This year, Forge will be sending one team to serve in Saltillo, Mexico in partnership with one of Forge’s indigenous alumni, Isaac, who is studying to be a doctor. The Mexico team will serve on the streets of Saltillo and at a large youth camp. The team will then travel to the heart of Mexico—Mexico City—where they will be hosted by another indigenous alumni, Santiago. The team will put on a youth conference in Toluca, Mexico. Then serve a rural community in the town of Atlacomulco.
Forge will also be in Honduras. The team this year will be partnering with an indigenous alumni, Marcia, in Copan where they will serve alongside a local ministry hosting camps for local youth. Then they will take a bus to the capital city of Tegucigalpa where they will partner with a local school to minister to youth in the city. The team is praying about an opportunity to bring the message of Hope to the “glue boys”—orphaned young boys who are addicted to shoe glue—on the streets of downtown Tegucigalpa.
