Project Transform - You. Community. World.

Apply Today

Project Transform is six weeks of cross-cultural training, justice creating, relationship building, spiritual development, and personal transformation in Baja California, Mexico. 

During this program, you will be stripped of your ideologies about culture, other people, God, and yourself, and enter into a space of surrender, learning, healing, and service. Join other individuals in a pre-field orientation as you gain some tools for the mission field. Be a partner in creating justice as you build a home alongside a Mexican family, and develop awareness of the struggles of living with minimal resources. Learn from the lives and experience of Mexican pastors who have been partnering with families for years. Listen to the stories of your fellow Transformers, giving yourself space to see a bigger picture of who God is. 

Although pieces of this summer will include things like house building, camp improvement projects, and helping out with churches - the focus of the summer is justice and leadership training that starts with the deep work Jesus is doing in you.  We at Amor Ministries desire that this Project be a pivotal point in your life - a transformational experience that will play an essential role in who you decide to be the rest of your life.

Participants of Project Transform will have a home base at our campground in Tijuana, Mexico. Experience living without modern conveniences like running water and electricity, just as many of the people you will serve do.

Projects can consist of: 

  • Visiting the Tijuana dump where Amor began, and learning the history of the ministry
  • Meeting leaders of local organizations, and learning about some of the realities of living in Mexico
  • House building
  • Camp set up and caretaking
  • Helping with Amor’s tool program
  • Serving in the camp Amor Store
  • A project at one of our Mexican churches
  • Attending a Mexican church service
  • Serving mission trip groups as they arrive at the Amor office
