La Viña Ministry Institute
Upon arrival to the Living Hope Community in Puebla, La Viña students are welcomed by a time of inspiring worship and are immediately immersed into a jam-packed, strategically planned, 18-week program designed to equip, train and mobilize students to love and serve the lost and hurting with the Gospel. Throughout the course, students are challenged to deepen their dependence on God and turn their longing to serve into a tangible passion, with a personal mission deep-rooted in their calling and relationship with Jesus.
With each outreach challenge and every guest speaker, the hearts of young people are being transformed and renewed. Working together with believers of different backgrounds births in them a knowledge of the importance of the body of Christ. Their eyes are opened to the impact that faith in action can have in their surroundings, in their country and in the world.
You see, La Viña plays a crucial role for the ministry of Living Hope. Each semester some of the students determine that THIS is where they desire to continue growing. They become interns, teachers, supervisors, gardeners and cooks! They come on board and work alongside a team of experienced missionaries while they continue to grow.
La Viña, as a ministry, impacts each student deeply but furthermore serves as an invaluable training ground for the young leaders of tomorrow, needed to carry the vision of Living Hope to the next generation in Mexico and around the world.
