About Us

Adventures in Life Ministry began serving in Mexico in 1992 with a simple mission... to get people out of their comfort zones so they could impact others and see how God would use them. 

Starting north of Ensenada in La Mision, we concentrated on helping new churches get a safe worship center. In 1996 we started working in Guadalajara and Nayarit. Our next stop was Oaxaca and from there, Sinaloa.

Today we still work with many of the same partners we started with years ago. That's one of the benefits we bring to the missions table. Years of relationships with the local church that enables us to provide you and your church a quality mission experience in Mexico.

And it is through those relationships that we can offer...

short term mission with long term impact!

Our Story

Mexico Missions. Those two words strike fear in the hearts of many people when they think of effective missions. Yet that is what we are about!

But serving with Adventures in Life is not your typical short term mission experience.

That’s because when you serve with us, you enter into the more than 25 year old relationship we have with Mexico. That includes the churches with whom we work, the ministry partners we serve and our almost unequaled understanding of the local customs and culture.

We were founded in October of 1992 and hosted our first short term teams the next month in La Misión, Baja California, Mexico. On a weekend mission in November, we had 25 people from the US and another 25 people from Mexico serving with us.
