Chile

Church of the Vineyard – Peñalolén, Santiago, Chile

Partnership

Bethel Church and the Church of the Vineyard have recently completed a three-year partnership for mutual encouragement and international understanding.

Teams from both churches have visited the other, and we have worked together in support of the humanitarian efforts of Vision for Chile.

In March 2012, the Church of the Vineyard installed their first Chilean pastor, Elías Stuardo.  He worked along side a missionary pastor through a transition period, which was completed near the end of 2012.

Missions Trips

Bethel Church members have made five trips to Chile since 2007. These trips included construction of a caretaker’s residence at a school in Temuco, construction of various buildings at the House of Hope in Santiago, and many times of ministry through Vacation Bible School, visits to the schools homes for children, and building into the lives of the young women residing at the House of Hope. Vision for Children – Chile offers opportunities to serve in February/March and October/November each year. For information about Bethel’s current involvement click here to send an email.
