Tucson, Arizona


MTW partners with Mike & Claire Alameda of Corazón Ministries in reaching the South Tucson Hispanic area. Mike ministers to many Hispanic pastors who need encouragement as they seek to serve in troubled neighborhoods. Both Mike and Claire are noted for their cross-cultural seminars that include culturally effective ministry approaches to first through fifth generation U.S. Hispanic citizens.

The week is a virtual workshop in Hispanic cross-cultural ministry. Teams have an opportunity to serve in both homes and churches helping with VBS, youth activities, construction, and door-to-door evangelism. Having someone on your team fluent in Spanish is helpful, but not required. Tucson is an MTW Family Friendly project that works well for families with elementary age children, as well as groups of youth and adults.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do teams stay?

Team housing locations vary, but most teams will stay at a church in the Tucson area. Teams will need to provide their own air mattresses.

Meals will be prepared by the team at the lodging church. Teams can set the menu and assist in the shopping if they so desire.


What is the ministry?

MTW is partnering with Corazon Ministries, a non-denominational Christian missions agency, to serve both English and Spanish speaking Hispanics/Latinos in the Tucson area. Teams will work on construction projects at local churches, and community outreach ministries throughout the city.


What does Corazón Ministries do?

The purpose of Corazón Ministries is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ within the context of culture and community in Tucson’s Hispanic and other ethnic populations.
