Venezuelan Servant Leadership

Pastor and seminary student Alexander Camacho leads remodeling work at the Wesleyan Seminary of Venezuela.

Work teams from the States are needed at the Seminary. But often some work needs to be done in preparation for those teams. Due West United Methodist Church of Marietta, Georgia has sent a team (February 20 to28) to lay cement block for the Seminary’s security fence. However, prior to their arrival footings and a foundation had to be dug, steel rebar tied and cement poured. Alexander Camacho gave two weeks of his time to lead this work so Due West could lay the block when they arrived.

As improvements are made on the seminary facilities security becomes a more serious issue. Theft is a threat with which we must responsibly deal. As in almost all of Latin America, effective security fences are constructed of concrete and are usually over 10 feet high. This wall will be 11.5 feet tall and must surround the entire property. The partnership which exists between Methodists in the US and Methodists in Venezuela strengthens both and represents Christ in a secular world.

Please contact us if your church would like to send a work team to the Seminario Wesleyano de Venezuela. God will bless your church and the church in Venezuela. Become a part of what God is doing in a very critical place in the world.
