Intercultural Encounters Facilitator

The intercultural encounters facilitator serves as team member for the Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies of Central America's (CEDEPCA) Intercultural Encounters program. The program offers churches, theological seminaries, and universities the opportunity to discover Guatemala in all its diversity, beauty and complexity. Through immersion and work projects, people from the North are able to experience the everyday life of Guatemala, and work alongside local communities. CEDEPCA is an independent ecumenical institution serving Central America's churches and has helped thousands of U.S. Presbyterians to understand the difficulties with which Latin American Christians live and to reflect on their own lives through the faith experience. Leslie Vogel has answered the call to serve in this position.
