Mexico, Sonora

About this partnership

Our Vision is to plant churches in Sonora and Sinaloa, Mexico that become healthy enough to proclaim, practice, and demonstrate the Kingdom of God. 

We believe our mission is planting an indigenous, reproducing, church-planting movement of Vineyard churches amongst our focus people group Sonora and Sinaloa, Mexico.

We plant churches that embody our heart as “Communities of Hope” that minister both to the spiritual needs and to the felt needs of local people in terms of poverty and injustice.

We facilitate the building of authentic disciples within the Vineyard churches through leadership training, conferences focusing on Kingdom values and priorities, etc.

We envision and impassion our own local (USA) churches toward greater involvement in missions and mission giving.

About Mexico 

Mexico is a country between the U.S. and Central America beaches on its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico coastlines and a diverse landscape of mountains, deserts and jungles. Per capita income is roughly one-third that of the US; income distribution remains highly unequal. Mexico has become the United States' second-largest export market and third-largest source of imports.
