Love Like Jesus – Live Different – Impact the World
Are you looking for ways to have an impact? The Serve Globally Impact Ministries consist of several missions that have their roots in Arvada Covenant and are led by members of the church. These ministries represent the “Impact the World” part of our church vision. Each provides an opportunity for you to become involved in a mission as well as get to know the missionaries and those they are serving and reaching out to. Take some time to review the videos of each of these ministries and visit their web pages to learn more about what they do.

Casa Hogar Palabra de Vida – El Porvenir del Estudiante – Cuidar Corazon
The Casa Hogar ministry entails the support and relationship building with three connected organizations in the city of Chihuahua, Mexico. Casa Hogar Palabra de Vida is a orphanage to abandoned and abused children, El Porvenir del Estudiante is an opportunity for the older children to earn a scholarship and continue with an education at one of the trade schools, university, or bible school in Chihuahua, and Cuidar Corazon is a new ministry to provide care for the disabled children of Chihuahua.
Each year a team from Arvada Covenant visits Chihuahua to spend a few days with the children. This is a wonderful opportunity to bless these children, and to give of yourself, while being blessed in return.
We have other opportunities throughout the year to be involved and impact the lives of these children, such as our Casa Hogar Christmas event that provides gifts to the children at the orphanage. Pastor Gardea, the director, visits Denver several times throughout the year. Visit our Casa Hogar web page to learn more.
