We believe that youths, families and communities can be transformed through the restoration of an individual’s God-given purpose and the development of local leaders.
Juntos, of Albuquerque, NM, began in 2005 as a group effort by five different ministries and churches to provide a summer day camp for kids in the International District (at that time labelled “The War Zone.”) Over 100 kids attended that initial camp and Juntos was born! Since that time, we have continued with weekly meetings, summer programs, leader training, small group Bible studies, tutoring and mentoring.
Today, we celebrate the fact that some of our original elementary students are now our leaders and are sharing Jesus with others from their neighborhood!
Over the years we have borrowed space for our large group programs (attended by 60+ children) and are very “creative” with space in parks, homes and fast food restaurants for our small group activities. However, the church we are currently in is not located in our neighborhood, is difficult to transport children to, and is challenging to arrange for the times and space we need.
Our programming and desire to expand has increased to the point that we need a permanent place to call “home”.
We are believing God to provide the funds for us to buy a permanent home for Juntos by Fall 2017. This building will have classrooms, a meeting area for large groups, a kitchen and event area, outdoor space for recreation & gardening and will be located in the middle of the International District – within walking distance of several of our current families.
We invite you to join our Juntos team! We have teamed up with Breaking Ground in order to make our Navigator Ministry home a reality.
