Who We Are
Jason and Sara Phipps serve with Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) in Bolivia. Sara was first involved with CVM as a student at the University of Tennessee and has gone on several short-term trips with CVM throughout the years to several countries. Sara has been a small animal veterinarian for the past 19 years but has wanted to serve on the field long-term since veterinary school. In God’s timing and with the partnership of her husband, they are now embarking on this calling on their life. Jason and Sara have been married for 6 years and have a large blended family of 6 children, (Mat, Isaac, Rachel, Sean, Jake, and Ella). They are all grown and in various stages of leaving or having left the nest except for the youngest, Ella, who will be with them in Bolivia part of the time. Sara loves teaching and wants to share Christ’s love through relationships using veterinary medicine. Jason is a carpenter and does home remodel and repair. He wants to use his skills to also serve Christ and share the gospel with his own unique ministry while in Bolivia.
Sara serves at the University in Santa Cruz and Villamontes through an organization called VetRed. VetRed’s mission is to challenge, empower, and facilitate Latin American veterinarians and students to serve others through veterinary medicine, living out their Christian faith. Sara is involved in student ministry which includes leading Bible studies, mentoring, and discipling young people as they walk with the Lord. She is also teaching both veterinary medicine and English as well as hosting short-term trips. Jason is involved with El Jorda’n, which is a place of help and direction and is a member of Avant Ministries. He will be teaching and mentoring boys to learn skills after school, such as welding, carpentry, and leatherworking. This is a safe place for the boys to go to keep them off of the streets and teach them a skill while sharing the gospel.
The Phipps are partnered with VetRed in Bolivia. They serve alongside CVM field staff members Drs. Coalson and Ruth Lacey.
