Yucatan Peninsula Christian Mission Welcomes You
The Yucatan Peninsula Christian Mission is a non-profit existing to equip and train ministers to start churches and spread the gospel throughout the Yucatan, Mexico.
In 1973, many churches in the Dayton, Ohio area decided to send Samuel and Elizabeth Gonzalez to the Yucatan Peninsula to plant churches, train leaders, and spread the gospel to the Maya people there. Sam and Elizabeth were trained at Cincinnati Bible Seminary, in the states, and after their training, lived with their 3 beautiful children Leonardo, Brenda, and Nancy in Mexico in order to be close to the ministers and the vibrant, growing churches. Sadly, in 2014, the Lord took Sam home, but the Gonzalez family continues to be invaluable to the work in Mexico.
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Colegio Biblico is offering our missionaries classes that will lead to an official, accredited, Bible college degree. The professors come to Merida, Yucatan at the Vergel church to hold an intensive week of classes; then the students correspond by email for the rest of the semester. The classes do a lot to prepare the people for church leadership, and we had 6 people graduate in the fall of 2019. The YPCM currently sponsors those missionaries interested in taking classes and it currently costs only $50 per class or $200 a year.
In many of the small villages in the Yucatan, there is no clean drinking water, so to help combat this, the YPCM has purchased several water filtration devices from Uzima Water Filters. The ministers are using them with much success and we are excited to provide them with clean drinking water!
