Short Term Mission Teams, Long Term Impact
Doug and Catherine work with local churches to provide the logistics, training, organization, and strategic planning to bring in American coworkers to plant new churches in Colombia. We provide Colombians and Americans with translated evangelism, discipleship, and small group tools needed to do the work of the ministry. Training is provided both for the Colombian side of the team and the American side on how to share the faith, make disciples, gather those disciples into new churches, and to care and oversee those churches long-term.

Making Missions Accessible to the Local Church
By donating you become a ministry partner enabling us to connect local churches here in the US with those in Colombia to plant new churches in unreached regions, cities, and villages. You become partners with us and those churches in expanding the Kingdom by providing funds for workers, tools, and training needed for starting new churches and Bible studies. 

Online Media Ministry
As the media arm of e3 Partners, I Am Second uses media of all types to introduce Jesus to people online. Doug's particular role on the team is to manage the blog, discipleship tools, and other long-form writing projects in order that more and more people can hear the good news of Jesus.
