who we are and what we do
Vecinos is the newest local outreach ministry under the umbrella of All Things Ministries! The mission of Vecinos is to love the Spanish-speaking community of the Auburn-Opelika area as Jesus leads. The Spanish-speaking community of the Auburn-Opelika area is largely overlooked and unengaged by the larger populace, which neglects them as our neighbor. As we recognize the Spanish-speaking community of our local area as our true neighbors, we strive to treat them as such. Practically, this ministry serves a certain neighborhood in the Auburn area. Twice a week we meet with these children, play, and share the Gospel. At Vecinos, we begin all approaches by forming relationships with individual living in Spanish-speaking communities around the area.
Meet our directors
These students were chosen by ministry leadership to lead Vecinos for the 2023-2024 year.
Emily is a junior at Auburn University. She is from Chattanooga, TN and has a heart for missions and telling people about Jesus.
Graham is a senior at Auburn University and is from Nashville, TN. He is passionate about sharing the Gospel and has a huge heart for the Hispanic community in Auburn.
The Woodland Hills Apartment Complex is our first location. Ministry at this location looks like deep, intentional relationships with kids and their families, playing a lot of sharks and minnows and sitting in the grass talking about Jesus.
This is our newest location of outreach that the Lord has blessed us to expand to as a ministry. Ministry at Webster's Crossing looks like growing relationships and getting to know new faces often through games of soccer and football.

Once a week volunteers go to the kids' neighborhood and focus on helping them finish their homework and teaching them
Volunteers have the opportunity to take the kids to do things in the community, whether it be Toomer's Corner for lemonade or Sam Harris Park. One on one relationships are the foundation of this ministry.
Volunteers go two afternoons a week to the kids' neighborhood. One day focuses on tutoring, while the other focuses on the weekly Bible lesson.
