If you are preparing for ministry or wanting a closer walk with God, this program is for you!

Kids Ministry

In most public and private schools’ grammar English is taught, however, Conversational English is not. You will help the kids on a regular basis by giving them a change to practice their English and directly influence their lives. Local church ministry is also available, you will be involve in kids programs, also will have the option to eventually help the local church to start their kids program if there is not. As your Spanish grows and depending in your ability to communicate one other option is to get involve in discipleship.

Youth Ministry

Similar to Elementary school, the work in high school is very needed, as well as the help in local churches with their youth ministry, some churches don’t have any activities for youth because their don’t have any one who could lead the activities, you will be very welcome to help start a youth ministry in a local church that does not have it.


If your thing is sport, well, depending in the level of your skills we could reach the community under your line of sport, also helping churches – schools – and orphanage through that sport could be very beneficial too!


If you are a student of some branch of medicine and while you are learning Spanish you want to get involve in the medical community we can help you to get involve in a clinic, also travel to places were doctors don’t go often and help them with primary medical attention.
