Porch de Salomon

Porch de Salomon is a response to several families and their friends being called into lives of love and service in Panajachel, Guatemala. We strive to bring the first-century church’s spirit of adventure, risk, service, and even fun to those who live in a 21st-century world. Solomon’s Porch was an ancient, open place where people seeking transformation gathered to explore Jesus of Nazareth’s radical message of love and redemption. Email for more information

Seeds of Hope

Our motto says it all. We want to nourish hope among people in need through the actions and help provided by our local students.


Seeds of Hope wants to provide community service hours that not only touch the lives of people who are struggling but also touch the hearts of local students which may spark an interest in lifelong pursuits of volunteer opportunities.
