AMO’s Main Campus is located in the city of Jarinú, SP. It is on the outskirts of the city on a small mountaintop, surrounded by trees. The two adjacent properties give our base of operation a total of 64,400 sq. meters of land. We have a vision for the poor not only of this generation, but for the generations to come. Kids and adults alike love visiting the AMO Main Campus, as it is something that they do not normally get to experience in their oppressed communities.
Basic facility use
At the AMO Main Campus, we provide lodging for Brazilian and international full-time volunteers, as well as visiting teams on mission. AMO’s Main Campus is currently the storage and distribution center for ministry equipment, supplies, food, clothes and all other goods that have been donated; from here it is dispersed to the communities as needed.
Jarinu Church & Outreach
On Sunday mornings, we have gatherings of our volunteers and local church members for a time of worship and hearing the Word.
Homes for at-risk children and teens
One of the great passions that A.M.O. has in its ministry is the desire to break the strongholds that the enemy places on children in the slums of Brazil. Many of the single mothers in the favelas are in dire situations as a result of being raised in the same type of depraved communities that they are now raising their children in. Families receive the support and care necessary to help break this cycle.
Local and international professionals donate their time and talent to teach workshops to our volunteers and those we minister to; they, in turn, teach the skills they learn to others. The construction projects have been a great opportunity for experienced construction veterans from both abroad and a local church to come out to teach new techniques when needed, such as stair building and roofing.
Housing for Volunteers
The full-time volunteers and missionaries live on the AMO Main Campus. Many of our volunteers come from very poor families and grew up participating in the activities and programs that AMO has to offer. Today they live here, work together, and rely on support from the free will offerings of individual donors.
In the beginning, AMO had one property that had 2 houses, an efficiency, pool, small basketball court, soccer field, and wooded area. Today, that property now has another multi-purpose house (where some of the full-time volunteers live, mission teams are hosted, and our Jarinu Church services are held), three gardens, and a garage for the bus. AMO also acquired an adjacent property that used to be all wooded area, and has since been cleared for missionary homes, two full-fledged gardens, and extra area for future AMO projects.
