Since 1937 the evangelical missionary community of Guatemala has gathered to worship, fellowship, pray, play and enjoy time together. For many, especially those who are in smaller mission organizations or live in rural areas of the country, Intermissions provides a once a year opportunity to worship and hear God’s word taught in English. It provides the place to renew old friendships. It affords the space to spende time away from your ministry focus in order to hear God in a new and fresh way.
For the 2023 Intermissions Conference we are pleased to announce that John Roach, Missions Pastor at Green Acres Baptist Church, Tyler, Texas, will be our speaker.
Please begin now praying for the 2023 conference, Pastor John, and the teams that will be coming to minister to us!
The Framing and Finishing Committees are already working on next year’s conference. Stay tuned here and on ther Intermissions Guatemala Facebook Page for the latest information on conference package prices, date of registration in the fall, and other information as it becomes available.

Counseling Services +
As missionaries we all deal with a high stress level on eny given day. Some studies suggest that most missionaries live constantly over the dangerous stress level indicators. Another significant factor is we find ourselves with no one to talk to about these stressors. That is why it is so exciting to have proffesional Christian counselors with us each year at the conference.
We work hard to make the conference experience the best it can be. The core of our efforts is to continue the original vision of bringing rest and recreational experience to our fellow missionaries and their families.
Your response to the following survey helps us reach that goal.
