Overview

Fusion Student Ministry will be going to Merida, Mexico with Servant Life in June 2023. Servant Life is a mission-mobilizing ministry connecting students' love for God to the nations of His world. Merida, Mexico is just a few hours from Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula. While in Merida, students will be partnering with a local seminary and a network of more than 40 churches. Students will engage in work projects and community outreach events such as VBS. 

This trip is a great opportunity for students to grow closer to God through service.
