Our Mission

'Whatever it takes’ to build Eternal Relationships!

More Than Humanitarian Aid
Holding true our Lord’s example, PBM ministers to people’s physical needs as well as the eternal. In every home built, at every medical clinic or outreach conducted, in our Open Doors Orphanage, and through our evangelism and discipleship programs the full Gospel is presented. Thousands have come to know our Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and are now…Paradise Bound!
You’re Invited to Join Us
We invite you into our lives and calling as you spend the next few moments with us—moments that, through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, could equal Eternity in the life of one of these precious ones of His!
A Rewarding Experience

PBM has touched over 100,000 lives and our vision has been embraced by over 3,000 team members who have served alongside us on short term Mission Trips. Allow yourself a moment to imagine God using you to touch the life of another through one of our mission trips and/or as a Prayer or financial partner. This truly is “an experience Eternity will only heighten” as you someday recognize those in Heaven whom our Lord brought to Himself through you. If not you, then who? If not now, then when?

We invite only one team at time to minister alongside us. We handle no more than 40 persons per team, with 30 being our preferred number. You will have the opportunity to build deep relationships within the team, with our staff, and with those whom you are called to serve and minister to. There are hundreds of individuals and churches who return repeatedly to Paradise Bound to continue the ministry our Lord began in their hearts.

2020 Mission Team Dates
All of our summer mission trips have been canceled due to COVID-19.

The Promised Land!

“Be strong and courageous…you will lead people to the promised land!” That verse is inscribed upon Luke Sullivan’s memorial that, barring COVID-19, would have been mounted in stone today at Paradise Landing in Guatemala. Today, June 27th marks one year since the tragic accident that claimed Luke’s life and forever changed the life of Bruce Van Fleet and his family, as well as PBM. We mourn with Luke’s family, holding them up in Prayer as we also celebrate his life. Praying continually as well for the Van Fleet family as they journey through their healing, and calling to “…lead people to the promised land.”
