STM Church Groups

STM Church Groups travel together to minister to children and youth at Esperanza Viva Youth Homes in Matamoros or Puebla, Mexico. Church groups get a chance to do everything from playing with kids to participating in outreach activities, and exploring a foreign culture.

Church teams are challenged spiritually to draw closer to the Lord. Through service to the less-fortunate, team members often learn to better appreciate all the blessings that God has given them. Church groups also may complete work projects to help expand and improve existing ministries or help with construction of the Living Hope Community.

All group visits must be scheduled at least one month in advance. Please include your name, your city and church name, approximately when you would like to visit, and a tentative plan for how you would like to serve during your time at Esperanza Viva.

If you are interested in bringing a STM team from your church or a work group to help with a specific project like building closets and kitchenettes, landscaping or another project, please contact us today.
