Project Scope

English

Chile Mission focuses on local churches in Chile to reach people, and especially children, with the love of Jesus, that they might know and follow him too. Their work also involves housing and emotional & spiritual support for mothers of children coming to Santiago children’s hospitals from other parts of the country to receive long-term medical treatments.

To expand their current camp ministry, they have a property for a children’s camp/Christian center between Chillán and Concepción, six hours south of Santiago. Ideas for the camp include a retreat center, cabins, a dining facility, amphitheater, horse stables, agriculture development areas, a lake for water activities and more.

Chile Mission has asked EMI to partner with them in developing a masterplan for their new ministry site, helping them to take the next steps on their journey and to build well for the future. We will be working with local designers, so experience speaking Spanish would be helpful.  Will you join us in designing a world of hope?

 

Español

Chile Mission se enfoca en capacitar a los líderes de iglesias locales para ministrar a los adultos y jóvenes, con el fin de ganar almas para Cristo y discipularlos en la Palabra de Dios. Su trabajo también incluye vivienda y apoyo emocional y espiritual para madres de niños que vienen a hospitales de infantiles en Santiago de otras partes del país para recibir tratamientos médicos a largo plazo.

Para expandir su actual ministerio de campamentos, tienen una propiedad para un campamento de niños / centro cristiano ubicado entre Chillán y Concepción, seis horas al sur de Santiago. Las ideas para el campamento incluyen un centro de retiro, cabañas, un comedor, anfiteatro, establos para caballos, áreas de desarrollo agrícola, un lago para actividades acuáticas y más.

Chile Mission le ha pedido a EMI que se asocie con ellos desarrollando un plan maestro para la nueva propiedad del ministerio, ayudándolos a dar los siguientes pasos en su jornada y así construir de la mejor manera para el futuro. Estaremos trabajando con diseñadores locales chilenos, entonces si tienen experiencia en el idioma español sería de gran ayuda.  ¿Se unirá a nosotros para diseñar un mundo de esperanza?
