VINEYARD MINISTRIES CENTRAL MEXICO
Make Mazatlan a Paradise for All
Feeding the mind, body, and spirit of the poorest and most vulnerable members of our communities
WHO WE ARE
Vineyard ministries shares the message of love with the poor and marginalized communities of Central Mexico by creating programs that focus on "feeding" each person's body, mind, and spirit. Each week we feed over 400 adults through our Compassion tour to the city dump and over 1,000 children across our 17 Community Centers of Hope. Our English school, scholarship program, as well as kids orchestra and soccer teams give kids access to educational programs that otherwise would not be available to them. Our church services (English & Spanish), daily devotionals, and kids bible studies at the Community Centers of Hope feed the spirits of over 1,500 adults and children on a weekly basis by showing them they are loved and valued by God and people. Our vision for Mazatlan is to go from 17 to 30 Community Centers of Hope so we can make Mazatlan a paradise for all.
WHAT WE DO
We build Feeding Centers for children in need. These Feeding Centers also serve as community centers, and churches, where kids and families can safely gather to eat, learn, and pray. We provide children with shoes, school supplies and weekly meals through our child sponsorship program for just $15 a month. Our English school helps adults and kids from poor communities land better jobs as so many require fluency in English. We provide underprivileged children an opportunity to be part of a kid's orchestra and soccer team. Twice a week Volunteers and staff make 200 sandwiches and give them out to the communities working and living at the Mazatlan dump. After the trip to the dump we pass by neighborhoods in need and give out grocery bags filled with food and household necessities. We invite you to learn more about what we do and to get involved in helping us make a difference in these communities.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP NOW

Every Tuesday and Thursday we prepare 300 sandwiches and bottled water to pass out at the Mazatlan City dump. You can help sponsor a day at the dump by donating $150US (or $200CAN) to cover the cost of sandwich supplies and gas in order to help feed the people who make their living from scavenging at the city dump. Contact us to pick your date and make your donation now!
Here are the dates that are still available to sponsor:
November 18, 23, 25
December 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28, 30
If you are in Mazatlan, come prepare the sandwiches and visit the dump with us. It will be a life changing experience. Bring your family members and friends so that together you can make a difference and touch the lives of people in need.
"We must not drift away from the humble works, because these are the works nobody will do. For there are many people who can do big things. But there are very few people who will do the small things."
EFFECTIVE & AFFORDABLE CHILD SPONSORSHIP
YOU CAN FOREVER CHANGE THE LIFE OF AN UNDERPRIVELEGED CHILD IN MEXICO. Your sponsorship gives a child a weekly meal, individual prayer, and a group bible lesson at one of our Community Centers of Hope. Your child will also be provided with basic school supplies and a new pair of shoes every year. He/she will also be invited to take part in a chaperoned field trip and a Christmas party! Here are some children and young adults available for sponsorship with Vineyard Ministries Central Mexico.
