From: $10 – subscription plan available

Kathryn (Kat) Guild felt a call to missions as a teenager. Growing up in Charlotte, NC she actively participated in music ministry at her local church. When Kat encountered the gospel in a personal way in high school, she experienced the joy of sharing her faith with others. Consequently, this led her to serve several summers at WinShape camps, in Georgia and Costa Rica.

During college, Kat got involved with CRU at UNC-Chapel Hill. As a result, she immersed herself in the Word of God through a gospel-centered community. Spending a semester studying abroad in Quito, Ecuador grew her love for the people of Latin America and the Spanish language. Therefore solidifying her call to international missions.

Kat serves with the team in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia. This business hub and port city occupies the northwestern portion of Colombia along the Caribbean coast. Home to an estimated 2.6 million people, the opportunities for developing relationships leading to discipleship are endless. The team’s vision includes planting a church among the professional working class. The vision also encompasses redemptive ministry opportunities in serving the vulnerable and marginalized. Kat uses her gifts of building authentic relationships and shares how the love of Christ continues to transform her life. Additionally, she serves alongside the team to build bridges with the Venezuelan refugees and foster excitement in the local church to support this vulnerable population.
