The Gutierrez family has served together in Peru since 2011. Danny and Stephanie serve on the pastoral staff and executive team of Camino de Vida, a growing church with 5 campuses located in the capital city of Lima.
Danny is also one of the church’s teaching pastors, small groups pastor, and leads the missionary internship program, which allows english speaking students to serve for a semester as a step in discerning if they are called to long-term missions.
Stephanie serves on the worship team, and as a teacher and mentor at the Grace House, a Christian safe house for girls who are struggling with eating disorders, self-harm behaviors, addictions or other results of abusive situations, and as a professor at the IDL leadership institute at the church.

"Shouldn't we expect far greater glory under the new way?"
This past Sunday night at our Surco campus I got to share a question that has been stirring inside me. It is the question the Apostle Paul asks in 2 Corinthians 3:8.
If you haven't seen one of our Sunday night service, you have to check this out! You'll see that Camino de Vida LOVES to worship and gather as a family to enjoy God's presence and his word.
Central (College Students) Missions Trip to Puira
Our college students organized and raised funds for their trip to Puira (the epicenter of the natural disasters that struck Peru earlier this year).
They were able to give away:
365 bundles of food || 250 bundles of clothing || 9 mattresses ||
... And 101 people received Jesus along the way!
Our 11 new missionary interns have arrived! They come from great churches from across the US (Church on the Move, Hillsong NYC, Church of the Highlands, Guts Church, Calvary, Destiny Church, Inspire Hawaii) and are ready to come alongside of us to serve for 5 months.
Join us in praying for them and their time here. We are believing for great things to happen in them and through them. You can follow them on instagram at @internshipcdv and on Facebook as well.
SMALL GROUPS (Grupos Pequeños)
We just wrapped up our second season of small groups for the year. We had 270 small groups with 2846 participants gathering each week to encourage each other in their faith. In September we will begin our last season of the year and we are believing for great things.
Camino de Vida + Hillsong + Nike = Halleluyah!
We had the opportunity to partner with Hillsong Church and Nike to be one of the first distribution points for shoes that are specially designed for children with special needs. What an honor it was to be able to bless these precious kids!
This past July we had a blast at our Men's Breakfast!
It is always a gift to see men, young and old, father's and sons, come together to worship God. We are so grateful to be witnessing God doing something great among the men in our church!
