High Pointe has been involved in El Salvador for over 25 years, working to equip those who have a position for leadership in the church as well as those who have the gift and a passion for making disciples. There are many different ways to be involved in the El Salvador efforts of mission work. We would love to have your gifts and efforts in El Salvador.
Every Salvadoran will have the opportunity to obey the Gospel
To proclaim the gospel in every city, town and village and to establish evangelistic congregations of the church of Christ throughout El Salvador.
El Salvador Christian Education Program
Empowering Christian Leadership
Since 1997, the members at High Pointe have helped enhance the future church leadership and overall socio-economic status of 300+ children in El Salvador through the sponsorship program. This program is implemented through local Church of Christ indigenous ministers with whom High Pointe has had long-standing relationships.
For $30 per month, your sponsorship provides necessities such as food, clothing, and medical care, and it also allows the students to remain in school. Support replaces the lost income from the students who often must work on the streets to help provide for their families. Helping a student to at least finish high school will allow him/her to get a business-related job and become important and impactful to Salvadoran society.

Milagro de Jesus University Scholarship Program
In 2004, Milagro de Jesús Sandoval, a recognized youth leader in El Salvador, passed away, and a university scholarship program was established in her honor. For $60 per month, sponsors have permitted many students to complete university education in their chosen field of study.
Some of those areas include: Mechanical, engineering, medicine, nursing, accounting, pharmacy/chemistry, law, math education, clinical laboratory, systems engineering, English, social work, marketing, communications, industrial engineering, computer science/networking, journalism & audio-visual communication.
Since 2013, the following students have graduated and received a degree in their chosen field:
- Elmer Daniel Campos del Cid, accounting
- Asunción del Carmen Melgar Calderón, nursing
- María Ruíz, elementary education
- Stefanie Gutiérrez, medicine (cardiology)
- Katherine Eloisa Velásquez Pérez, nursing
- Marcela Natalia Perdomo Ramírez, marketing
- Erika Lissette Mejía Martínez, nursing
- Bianca Leticia Zelaya, law
After graduation, these successful and important members of Salvadoran society will strive to give back to their community by helping future students to pursue their education in the university.

Mission Bible Class
Founded in 2014, Mission Bible Class (MBC) provides free resources, training, and consultation to equip people around the world to share the Word of God with children. Starting as a collection of Mary Nelson’s own writings and resources, MBC consists of bible story lessons, crafts, and games to download from the website. MBC also offers personal consultations and training workshops throughout the world to help teachers equip and mentor their students in the word of the bible.
MBC in El Salvador is striving to identify and train Christian women to share God’s Word with children and to lead other women to do the same. With the coordination of Rosana Adams, comprehensive, Biblical, and ongoing free online resources and tools in Spanish to be used as a curriculum and/or as a base by women servant leaders are provided so they can build their own resources.

The El Salvador Missionary Support ministry began in 1995 and strives to equip all missionaries that we support (financially or otherwise) to make disciples who make disciples or plant new churches. We are dedicated to helping every Salvadoran to have the opportunity to obey the gospel, our overall vision for the work in El Salvador. That support comes in a variety of ways such as financial support, training, and encouragement to indigenous evangelists. High Pointe’s involvement spans the country, from San Miguel in the eastern zone to Santa Ana in the western zone, and the capital San Salvador in the central zone. We are currently partnering with a group of about sixty disciple-makers and more than twenty different churches across the country. All the disciple-making strategy is coordinated through Genesis Alliance, which is charged with implementing disciple-making methodology throughout the country.
The church plants which High Pointe initiated over the years are:

After consultation with two doctors in Ciudad Real and the feedback from local evangelists regarding a large portion of their population being unable to access basic healthcare, High Pointe established a Medical Missions Ministry in 2019. The first ministry trip to El Salvador set out to support the current efforts in Santa Ana that have been initiated by Dr. Gutierrez utilizing local resources such as Health Talents International for follow-up clinical support. Health Talents International (www.healthtalents.org) has been providing evangelical medical service in their Guatemala mobile clinics and their surgical clinic since 1990. They are an organization sponsored by Churches of Christ whose partnership with over a dozen local churches in Guatemala has resulted in remarkable growth in membership.
On the most recent trip, many community members were impacted and helped with medical treatment and spiritual guidance.
- 322 patients were triaged, treated, and connected with the local church ministry.
- 55 dental extractions were performed
- 114 pairs of reading glasses were distributed to locals, using the Bible as the testing text.
For more information about the Medical Mission Ministry or to learn how you can be a part of the next trip, contact LeeAnn Fillebrown.
The El Salvador Discipling Ministry strives to identify and equip discipleship team leaders to make disciples who make disciples or plant new churches. Thus, this ministry is dedicated to helping every Salvadorian to have the opportunity to obey the gospel, our overall vision for the work in El Salvador. Currently, High Pointe partners with Genesis Alliance (www.genalliance.org). High Pointe has charged Genesis Alliance with implementing disciple-making methodologies across El Salvador. In order to accomplish this, Genesis Alliance recently held a seminar training more than 60 selected disciple-makers (including evangelists, some spouses, and young professionals) from all parts of El Salvador, as well as for a small number of evangelists from other Central American countries.
High Pointe has a working relationship with more than 20 different churches, the large majority of which are church plants High Pointe helped to initiate. All potential disciple-makers receive training and regular encouragement through Genesis Alliance and High Pointe as well as support when needed in crisis situations.
