Vida seeks to collaboratively train and plant rural Christ-centered churches with local leaders.
This occurs through partnerships with like-minded individuals and organizations. We seek to equip local leaders with Bible handling skills and resources they need to plant and build stronger Christ-centered churches in their communities.
- Training: Vida places a strong focus on training leaders in Bible teaching and Christ-like character.
- Mentor: Vida comes alongside these leaders to support and encourage them along the way.
- Resources: Vida resources native workers in regions where those they try to reach are hostile to the gospel. At times, this takes the form seed money to help them start or expand their small business and gain trade skills.
- Education: Vida operates a quality English school for young children to adults. This program has helped many boost their confidence in academics and has given them a valuable skill for the future.
- Conferences: Vida hosts many seminars at public venues throughout the year. These events have been held in schools, city halls, and open areas. Topics have included marriage, drug abuse, depression, suicide, and parenting.
Why the Circle of Silence?
Our heart breaks for those who do not have a relationship with Jesus. We believe no one should pass through this life without being given the opportunity to know Christ. We want to bring the ultimate message of hope, but we also consider practical help as a platform for gospel witness in this region where many are hostile to the gospel.
- Less than 1% of the population has a life-giving relationship with Jesus.
- The poverty cycle has grown rampant in this region and we want to give the people employable skills to increase their opportunities
- An unhealthy culture has developed from corruption and drug cartels operating in the area.
Train, mentor, and provide resources for native gospel workers to plant churches and build stronger Christ-centered communities. These men and women come from the same disadvantaged communities they serve and clearly understand the obvious needs of the people. We come alongside these dedicated workers to help them grow their businesses, and plant churches.
