MEXICALI 2018 - GENERAL INFORMATION

Mexicali is a weeklong outreach effort to the area of Mexico just south of the California border (approximately 5 hours from Los Angeles) sponsored by Mexico Outreach at Azusa Pacific University (www.mexicooutreach.org/press/).  Our purpose in going is to proclaim the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We proclaim the message so that people may be won in faith to the Lord and grown in faithfulness as His disciples.  Each ministry team, comprised of high school students (9th through 12th grade) and adult advisors, is based at one of three to four local Mexicali churches and supplements the long-term ministry goals and community presence of that local Christian body. 

Evergreen SGV has a long history with Azusa Pacific University's Mexico Outreach program as we sent our first team to Mexicali Outreach in 1984! From 1985 to 2006, Evergreen SGV partnered with Wintersburg Presbyterian and other local churches to send teams.  After a five-year hiatus, Evergreen SGV began sending teams again in 2012 and has continued to send two to three teams each year since 2012.
