Baja Build: Homes of Hope

BAJA BUILD "Homes of hope"


As we build our community at Bel Air Church, we also serve to build up His Kingdom around the world. Join our annual Baja Build "Homes of Hope" Mission Team from February 7-9, 2020!

Since 1990, more than 130,000 Youth With a Mission volunteers have participated in building Homes of Hope for the poorest of the poor in over 23 nations. Each year, teams of around seventy-five people from Bel Air join hammers and hands in this transformational experience. Bring your friends and family and let's shine God's Light in Baja Mexico!

Registration is now closed. Our next expected "Baja Build" will be in February 2021.

Note from Pastor Mike

Hi Team Baja - Builders of Hope! 

I have so many great memories from our time altogether over the last few years! It's amazing to be reminded of the two families who are living in the homes built by our hands. I imagine the children getting out of their bunk beds, having breakfast and making it to school on time. Maybe later that night, the families will sit around the dinner table and share stories of their day. Imagine: what we were able to do in just two days has changed the life of a family forever. What a beautiful thing to be ambassadors of God's grace. Let's go Build Hope again in 2020!

- Rev. Mike Morgan
