​​Watching God Change Lives For 30 Years  
Tim & Doris Spurrier
Founders
It was January 1988 in Canton, Ohio, when Tim & Doris Spurrier and their two children, Joe and Amy, packed all of their belongings—including their dreams—into a 1972 Ford pick-up truck. They drove five days through the United States and Mexico, before finally crossing the Guatemalan border. Previous to this trip, Doris and the children had never ventured outside the United States. However, when they crossed into Guatemala, Doris looked at Tim and said, "I feel like we're home."

For the next six years, the family operated a mission in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Over the course of the next decade they raised the funds, located the resources, tirelessly lead the effort, and worked with Guatemalan leaders to build Hospital Shalom, a state-of-the-art medical hospital in the very remote area of The Petén.
​As Tim & Doris are always eager to share: 

"There is more to our mission than simply meeting the physical
and emotional needs of the people we're called to serve.
Although this, alone, is a noble endeavor, New Covenant World missions
continually seeks out opportunities to share the love and kindness of Jesus Christ
with the poeple living in the Petén through personal ministry, formal Bible training, 
prayer services, and leadership opportunities."

By providing healthcare for the body, education for the soul, and hope for the spirit, the goal of New Covenant World Missions is to address the various areas that keep the wonderful Guatemalan people from reaching their full potential.
