Stride is Latin Link's programme for those wanting to serve for between 6 and 24 months.*

Stride is designed for committed Christians who feel drawn to put their faith into practice in a Latin American culture. You'll spend at least 6 months working alongside a church or Christian-run project, responding to local needs and getting involved in the local community.

We also offer Medical Electives and Bible college placements of 6-8 weeks for students.

Stride provides placements tailored to your gifts, skills and sense of God’s calling. 

Whether you feel called to spend a period of time serving God in a specific placement, or wish to explore whether mission in Latin America longer-term is the right option for you, or you need a placement/elective for your language or medical degree, Stride could be for you. Stride placements provide a supportive environment which encourages growth and discipleship while supporting the work of the Church in Latin America.
