About W&G

Vision

Create an educational system that promotes physical and spiritual excellence that prepares the student for this life and for eternity.

Mission

Provide holistic education based on the Word of God while taking into consideration the needs of the spirit, soul and body.

Colegio Cristiano Saber y Gracia (Wisdom and Grace Christian School) is located in the rural farming community of Santo Tomás Milpas Altas, Guatemala, Central America.

The school was founded in 1986 and today educates 400 students in Pre Kindergarten through 12th Grade. The school is directed by Rudi Pineda, who was born and raised in Santo Tomas and has a heart to bring transformation to Guatemala through Christian Education and discipleship.

The families in the village of Santo Tomás Milpas Altas have many physical, spiritual and emotional needs. Many families have suffered for years due to generational curses of alcoholism, abuse, infidelity, idolatry and lack of a solid father figure in the home.

Wisdom and Grace Christian School ministers to the whole family to bring restoration and transformation through the Word of God. We are able to reach entire families for Jesus Christ by educating their children and sharing the love of their Heavenly Father with them. This transformation through Christian education will impact the family, community, Guatemala and the World. This year we started a church called “Covenant of Grace.” We meet three times a week to provide a safe place for students, their families and the community to gather in worship and the study of God’s Word.

The central theme that is woven into all we do at Wisdom and Grace Christian School is understanding our true identity as children of God, experiencing the great love of our Abba Father, and understanding the plan and purpose He has has for each one through the unmerited favor or grace given to us through the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

Child Sponsorship

Wisdom and Grace reaches out to the surrounding rural communities and accepts children into our student sponsorship program who are in extreme need. We don’t want to simply give away money but rather create a partnership that will help the family move forward. The students are accepted into the program based on one or more of the following factors: the high number of children living in the home, children of single mothers, the low economic status of the family, and/or children living in crisis that have been abandoned or orphaned.

We are in need of sponsors to bring hope to these families. For only $60 per month you can change the future of a child living in poverty and make an eternal impact on their life by helping to partner with their a family! Your yearly or monthly donation will provide a solid Christian education for a Guatemalan child in need. We encourage you to create a lasting personal relationship with the family through letters, photos, prayer and personal visits.
