|Mission & History|
Seeds of Transformation strives to provide opportunities to experience Christ’s community in a different social, political, and economic context, strengthening our faith in a living God and deepening commitment to building Christ’s Kingdom of peace and justice.
Since 1985, the Mexican Association for Rural and Urban Transformation (AMEXTRA), the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and California-based Partners in Hope (PiH) have provided transformative experiences and impacting volunteer opportunities in various forms.
In 2010, all parties realized their interdependent vision and decided it was a perfect moment to combine resources to create the Seeds of Transformation Immersion Program, which will be run by AMEXTRA staff and will respond to mutual desire of the ELCA and PiH to offer a transformative and educational experience.
August 2011 marks the kickstart of the new program that will draw upon the experiences and strengths of all previous iterations of ELCA, AMEXTRA and PiH immersion programs to fulfill the Seeds of Transformation mission above.
