Steve and Carol Thompson are a picture of lives dedicated to missions and to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Originally from Texas, the Thompsons moved to Ecuador in 1987 to serve as missionaries with the International Mission Board. Over the years the Thompsons have been involved in various forms of ministry and outreach in Ecuador, all with a primary focus of evangelism, church planting and church development. After 23 years of service, Steve and Carol remain faithful to their calling in Ecuador.
During the year, Steve and Carol work with local believers and pastors to spread the gospel through conferences, vacation Bible schools, and youth retreats. They also hold pastor-training classes and worship conferences to help strengthen and build up the local church.
While serving in Ecuador, God began to reveal to Steve and Carol a vision for a strategic location where they could provide theological education, space for church retreats, facilities for summer camps, and retreat cabins for Ecuadorian pastors. They began construction on their first camp in 1996 and quickly saw the benefits to local churches and believers. In 2001 God provided a second location for camp space in the central mountain region of Ecuador.
UNPES Jungle Camp was the first camp ground and is located on the edges of the Ecuadorian jungle. The Thompsons spend part of the summer hosting children's and youth camps from their jungle location and then move to the mountain camp for the latter part of the summer. Camp Chacauco is a beautiful, hand-built retreat center in the central mountain region of Ecuador. It was originally designed as a retreat center for local pastors, and has become a place for students to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ through youth camps and sports ministry.
Servant Life has been sending groups to Ecuador to serve with the Thompsons since 2006. Groups traveling to Ecuador help to lead and facilitate the youth and children's camps alongside Steve and Carol. They may also have opportunities to minister to the local communities by leading Vacation Bible Schools and ministering to local churches. Join us as we help the people of Ecuador know Christ through His Word!
