Do you have the gift of construction? Yeah? Then this is your year to shine at Agua Viva, because we are committed to completing the first phase of the seminary building by August, 2008, when our MTI students arrive!!

So far, in this 42’ x 70’ two-story phase that will hold 4-5 classrooms and the MTI offices, we have the foundation and steel structure in place, as well as the walls of the first floor, the beams of the second floor, the rough plumbing, and the roof. We need everything else!
