About Us

Reachout Ministries

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be inspired, infallible, and the authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful people is the work of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that salvation comes through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
  • We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit indwelling the Christian to enable him or her to live a godly life.

Mission Statement

The mission of Reachout Ministries is to improve the lives of poor and
needy children and families in Guatemala and Columbia by providing opportunities for education and addressing physical and spiritual needs.

We are pleased to announce that at their May 2014 meeting, the board of Reachout Ministries voted to expand the ministry to Quibdó, Colombia. 

Situated on the Atrato River in western Colombia, Quibdó is the capital of the department (state) of Chocó.  It has a population of about 100,000 people.  Most of the people are of Afro Colombian descent.  It has a very hot and humid tropical rainforest climate.  The city receives more than 420 inches of rainfall a year, more than any other city of its size in the world.  Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, this area of Colombia was considered as a viable shipping route between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.  Gold and platinum were discovered in the region during the period of exploration in the late nineteenth century.  This assured Quibdó's growth and status as the chief town in the region. 

Quibdó is a very poor city.  Malnutrition is a significant problem.  Like we do in Chiquimula, Guatemala, we will work with a local church to provide nutrition and school supplies to neighborhood children.  The work in Quibdó will be modeled off what we are currently doing in Chiquimula
