While abroad, students will be partnered with a mission mentor who will help them get involved with ministry opportunities and connect them with a local church and the Christian community in Valparaíso. The local mission mentor in Valparaíso is Pamela. Students will meet regularly with Pamela for prayer, reflection, and spiritual accountability; the spiritual support and opportunities will make their time abroad transformational! 

Ministry opportunities in Valparaíso/Viña del Mar can include working with a ministry for people with varying levels of accessibility, children's ministry, and helping with a ministry for the elderly. With the Refugio ministry for people with varying levels of accessibility, students have the opportunity to share the gospel through a monthly activity in Viña del Mar. Every other onday, students can help with Años Dorados, a local church’s (Unión Cristiana’s) ministry for the elderly, doing an activity and engaging with people of other ages. In addition to the ministry opportunities, students can grow in their faith through Bible study, a group for young people, and Sunday worship service.
