Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Housing

Since 1994, Faith Ministry volunteers and mission work groups have built over 2,000 houses for families in need. The cinderblock and cement houses we build provide families with the shelter, warmth and security they need. Mission work groups spend a week in Mexico building a house alongside our staff and volunteers, laying blocks and creating a home.

Population(s) Served
Families

Faith Ministry runs a medical clinic in Reynosa, where our doctor and nurse see around 25 patients every day, many with hypertension, diabetes, or a combination of the two. Many patients come into the clinic for regular checkups, blood pressure tests, diabetes medication, or because they are sick and cannot afford medication from the local pharmacy. We provide free consultations, as well as free medication depending on availability.

Population(s) Served
General/Unspecified

Faith Ministry recognized a need in the communities of Reynosa and Miguel Alemán that children were not getting the food they needed each day. In Reynosa, we now serve breakfast to around 25-30 kids each day, many of whom may not eat another meal that day. In Miguel Alemán, we serve breakfast to around 15 kids once or twice a week. We also have fun activities for the kids in our program, including crafts, raffles, English lessons, and Bible songs!

Population(s) Served
Children and youth (0-19 years)

We give baby formula to mothers in need; the babies in our program are weighed and measured each week to ensure that they are growing at a healthy rate.

Population(s) Served
Infants to preschool (under age 5)
Parents

Around 160 students from elementary school through college receive scholarships through Faith Ministry. Although school is free in Mexico, many families are burdened by the costs of uniforms, books, supplies, transportation and food, and a scholarship makes that burden lighter.

Population(s) Served
K-12 (5-19 years)
Children and youth (0-19 years)

We want to empower men and women, young and old, to learn skills that can create new opportunities for them, and we do this through our skills training program, where we teach the skills of being a construction foreman, a carpenter, and a seamstress. We also have a music program for children and youth to learn guitar, drums, and more. We also teach English classes to children and adults when possible.

Population(s) Served
General/Unspecified

We have three churches in Reynosa, in Naranjito (an area outside of Reynosa), and in Miguel Alemán. At each of these churches, we have Sunday worship services, as well as a worship and prayer service during the week. We also youth group gatherings and activities for children, such as Vacation Bible School. Our pastors and church members provide care for each other as well as the community around them. Members of the congregation pray together regularly and deliver food packages to families in need. In Miguel Alemán, there is an area of town where people don’t have the means to be able reach our church location, so the congregation brought church to them. They worship, pray and have weekly activities and special celebrations there.
