Short Term Volunteers

Short-term Volunteer Application Process

1) Fill out the Volunteer Application. If you are coming as a pair, we need an application for each adult. If you are coming as a family, please fill out one application for each adult. For children traveling with you, please note them on your application in the appropriate field. 
2) Wait to hear from the volunteer coordinator. This usually will be between 5-7 days from the date the application is submitted.
3) The volunteer coordinator will help assess areas of need where you might best be of service. We do not accept any volunteers until we know of the area where they will be serving. As such, do NOT purchase any tickets for travel or proceed with plans to come to Loma de Luz with the expectation that you will “find a place” to serve. Wait to hear from the volunteer coordinator if your application is accepted. Then we will assist you with any questions you have as you look at travel options.
4) Once your application is approved, you will fill out the online forms linked below. 

Please note that your passport must be valid for AT LEAST 6 months after your travels to Honduras, as well as having a blank page for immigration to place the entry stamp. You can be denied entrance into Honduras if these requirements are not met. Before purchasing any tickets, please ensure that your travel documents are in accordance with these rules.

Short-term Team Philosophy:

Short-term teams to Loma de Luz can be a great help to the ongoing work. We recognize that a great deal of time, energy and financial commitment, both on behalf of the short-term volunteers on the team and that of the long-term missionaries at Loma de Luz, goes into planning these trips.  As such, we strive to do all we can to ensure that this investment is wisely used to further God’s kingdom and work.

When considering the utilization of short-term teams, there are 3 tenets we seek to uphold. These are:

1) Short-term Team volunteers should contribute to the ongoing work at Loma de Luz. When teams come, they must fit into an ongoing ministry of Loma de Luz that has space for additional volunteers. Rather than create jobs or look for a project for short-term teams, we look to our existing ministries and ask how short-term teams can best be used to work alongside us in our endeavors. Depending on the place of service, this might limit the number of volunteers or the ages of the volunteers that can be utilized.
2) Short-term Team volunteers should be involved in relationship building with long-term missionaries and local community members. The more volunteers on a team at any given time, the less likely it is that they will build personal connections with long-term missionaries and local community members. As such, we limit the amount of participants on a team, as well as the total number of volunteers Loma de Luz can host at any given time. Sometimes, we may need to ask you to change the dates you are considering. For this reason, we ask that you note if you have flexibility in your availability on the application.
3) Short-term Team volunteers should return home as ambassadors of the work of the Lord at Loma de Luz. We welcome each team member to share your experiences at Loma de Luz with your local church, small group, etc.  Stay up to date by receiving the Cornerstone newsletter (paper or electronic formats available – sign up here) and stay in touch with the missionaries you come to know during your visit.

Team Application Process: 

  • Only the team leader needs to submit the Volunteer Application.  We do NOT require an application for each team member.
  • The volunteer coordinator will work with the department heads to identify a project for your team. Teams that serve at Loma de Luz work together on one pre-identified project. We do not split teams between different ministry sites.
  • Please do NOT solidify a team until you hear back from the volunteer coordinator as to the nature of your team. Those on the team must be able to do the work that is needed to complete the identified project.
  • Once a project is identified and a team is formed, we will provide a cost estimate for the project your team is asked to take on. We request that teams fundraise towards the cost of their project and help cover its cost.
  • For more information on Loma de Luz’s utilization of short-term teams, please see our Short-term Team Policy.
