El Camino Bilingual School

El Camino was started more than 11 years ago with a vision of transforming the North Coast of Honduras through discipleship and changed hearts.

We can think of no better way to instill this type of discipleship than through a school which provides training from primary through secondary education, preparing young people for University and further specialty training.

As followers of Christ, we are called to make disciples, and discipleship is education. This takes time and dedication and is achieved best through a systematic approach from the youngest ages.

Our goal and our reason for reaching out through education and discipleship, is that we want to see these children come to Christ each in their own way and to come to their full potential in the gifts which God gave them.  

We want them to become the next generation of Honduran leaders.

Most people would agree that it is easier to teach and train young people than those who have developed stunted ways of thinking: incorrect notions and superstitions that often need to be unlearned. 

Our desire is to transform the North Coast of Honduras beginning  with the next generation of leaders.  Or as Victor Hugo insightfully put it “If you would reform a man, begin with his grandmother.”

We see great need in this beautiful landscape and essentially all the answers lie in the renewal and transformation of the individual heart.  We see no better way to enable this transformation than to share the  good news with little people who are Honduras’ future  hope .

Where there is violence we want to see men and women who will take a courageous stand for justice,

Where there is hunger and poverty, we want to encourage men and women who will come up with solutions for the less fortunate, who will become entrepreneurs and community developers.

Where there is ignorance we want to raise up men and women who would bring light to a dark world through their training and vocations, teaching in churches and schools and universities, doctors  and nurses who would treat people with love and dignity, politicians who look out for the needs of their community over their own.

We can think of no better way to instill this type of discipleship than through a school which provides training from primary through secondary education, preparing young people for University and further specialty training.

Finally, from beginning to end our goal and our reason for reaching out through education and discipleship, is that we want to see these children come to Christ each in their own way and to come to their full potential in the gifts which God gave them.  We want them to become the next generation of Honduran leaders; leaders who learned from “the ABCs” to “Advanced Composition” from sharing crayons and saying “please and thank you” to the origins of Western Civilization and learned it from Christians who shared the best they had.
