Open to Mexicans and Americans of all ages, Embrace is a week to build new friendships working alongside other believers fulfilling the great commission in Ensenada.

Groups of all ages come to serve through activities like VBS, medical clinics, construction projects, women’s Bible study, sports evangelism, and other ministries.


We have compiled information to  help you and your team with the cultural and logistical difficulties of preparing for ministry in Mexico. Enjoy!

1. What are the ministry options?

Our most popular ministry options include children's ministry, sports programs, construction, medical/dental clinics, and rehab center visits, however, we love to think outside of the box and use the specific gifts and talents of your group!  Free bike repairs, mobile salons, surf ministry... be creative with us!
2.  What are the costs?
Base cost for 4 ministry days (6 days total) is $320 per adult, $220 per 12 and under, and $50 for 3 and under.  Additional costs for construction, medical or bike ministries apply. 
3. Is there an age limit? 
Agua Viva welcomes participants of all ages- there is no age minimum or limit.  
4. What if I want to bring my family on a missions trip, but we don't have a group to go with?
While Agua Viva's traditional mission trips are designed for groups of 10 or more, Embrace is the perfect opportunity for an individual or family to be involved in missions.  You can find more information on our Embrace page.
