Each October, Denver Pres sends a short-term team to Ethiopia to serve with our global missions partner, Ethiopia ACT. ACT holistically serves the urban poor in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia through providing holistic and ongoing medical care, housing, education, business trainings, and spiritual counseling and community. We take a team of medical professionals and others whose skills algin with ACT's needs to provide medical clinics and other supports.

 2019 Team Members: Cindy Barrett, Will Berry, Jason Dausman, Ryan Flint, Matt Sares, Steven Sares, Gloria Shan, Amanda Smith

Financial Support - Goal of $3,000

God has gifted and called this group of people to serve in Ethiopia. Money given to the team will be used to offset team members’ trip costs ($3,000 a person), pay for medications that we bring with us to use in the medical clinics, and provide gifts to the Ethiopian staff. Money raised beyond our goal will go toward the next global missions trip.
