Argentina - Buenos Aires
One of our areas of focus is toward families with small children who wish to learn dance, song and theater. María José directs this school of music, called Renuevitos (Little Sprouts). Biblical principles are taught along with performance skills, in weekly classes and semi-annual retreats, as well as Saturday fun times. We have an annual end-of-the-year Musical Outreach where the talents the students learned are showcased and the story of the Gospel is communicated creatively.
Other ministries include small groups both for discipleship and outreach. One of these is Padres con Valor (Parents with Courage). One-on-one discipleship opportunities also are an important part of our ministry.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.
EVALUATE and ENGAGE
We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.
As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
