What is LaAmistad Ministry?​
LaAmistad is a tutoring program that meets right here on our campus every Monday and Wednesday from 3:30pm - 5:30pm during the school year. We have around 25 Latino students from BriarVista Elementary School who come to strengthen their academic and life skills through devotions and homework, as well as immerse them in activities to enhance their English literacy. The words la amistad mean “the friendship” in Spanish. At LaAmistad, friendships between students, students and staff, and also students and volunteers are cultivated every day, and their impacts can last a lifetime.
