Welcome to Dexter United Methodist Church!

Belize: Omega Ministries


Approximately three mission teams per year travel to Belize to assist a small church near the western border called Omega Ministries. Under the leadership of Pastors Miguel & Eugenia Salazar and family, the Omega Church serves the small impoverished area of San Ignacio with solid Christian teaching in conjunction with Christian community, fellowship, charity, and economic empowerment. The church has only 40-60 members but impacts over 200 children & youth in the community. Mission teams encounter a spiritually powerful experience as they join together in ministry with the Omega church, becoming the hands and feet of Christ, serving together and learning from one another.

Upcoming Belize Mission Trip

Our desire is to continue to build relationships with the Omega Church, empowering them to spread the gospel and to assist with the improvement of living conditions. Our next mission trip to Belize is being planned for February 17-24, 2018. This is open to the entire congregation.  We will join in ministry with the people of the Omega Church in helping with minor construction, gardening, chicken coops, youth ministries and other needs of the community. Cost is $1,750 which includes airfare, food, lodging and ground transportation.  If interested or if you would like more information about the Belize mission trips, contact Pastor Tom Snyder at tomsnyder@dexterumc.org or 734.426.8480.
