Viña Association

Viña Association is a media production ministry located in the highlands of Guatemala. We are passionate about empowering oral learners, to grow into their full potential in Christ. Do you want to change the world? We are bringing about life transformation to one of the largest demographic groups in the world? If you a self-starter, a team player— we would like to give you an opportunity to make your mark on the world.

Our History

Viña’s story began as a response by Bible translators in Guatemala recognizing the need for Scriptures in audiovisual formats in meeting the needs of the Maya, who were oral learners. Their focus on the Maya has widened to producing much needed materials for children in the world.

Our Mission

Utilize technology and the arts to develop and deliver biblical resources that empower minority people groups to worship, evangelize, disciple, and fulfill the mission of the Church in culturally appropriate ways.

Our Values

•       God’s word • Prayer •       Work in partnership with others •       Orality •       Heart languages •       Evangelism & Discipleship •       Contextualized  Scripture •       Training of trainers and doers •       Indigenous ownership

Viña Association - What We Do

Viña works in partnership with Faith Comes By Hearing in the production of audio Scriptures in Central America. Over 45 New Testaments have been produced and over a million have been involved in systematic listening groups of God’s Word in their language. Viña is producing a video-based children’s Bible curriculum called “Deditos” (little fingers in Spanish). “Deditos” is a chronological video Bible story series for children, designed for the majority world, and especially for children in marginalized cultures. Viña is using the power of the story to engage the human mind and heart through the power of effective audio-visual media to engage audiences from all cultures. The stories are intentionally being designed within their original historical context (costumes, scenery, musical styles), as opposed to adapting them and placing them in any of today’s regional or ethnic contexts. Each culture, large or small, then has the opportunity to interact directly from their cultural context with the Biblical context in which the stories actually happened, and thus avoid having to deal with another culture’s preferences and filters.
