Current Needs

We believe God is calling us to be part of training a new generation of church leaders in Mexico. To carry this out we are opening a full, two-year Bible school called Instituto 3:14, and students hungry for a deeper knowledge of God’s word are signing up.
And at the same time our youth camps are full to the brim, and bigger and bigger groups are using our facilities for their retreats and conferences.
With this new influx of people, we have the best kind of problem: we’re running out of room.
Monte Sinaí is a new cabin that we are building. When completed it will house 64 people, ensuring that more people can come to Agua Viva to learn, and go out to serve.
We’re excited for the progress on Monte Sinaí, but the project is far from done, and we need your help to finish it.

Over the years those involved with AVM have blown us away with their generosity, and you continue to do so today. We are often asked what our biggest needs are, so we put together a list of items that if donated would help the ministry in a big way. If you or anyone you know has or would like purchase one of these items to donate, contact us for more information. And thank you for doing what you do to reach Mexico for Christ.
