Our Mission

The "Agrupado" (congregant) mission is to follow in the Agrupación's motto; “Esto Vir” (1 Kings 2:2). Translated from Latin, it means: «be a man». Every person has the potential to excel at the particular vocation God has proposed each one. For an Agrupado, “Esto Vir” embodies the call of God, to become modern beacons of light for the World.
