Bringing the good news of Jesus to university faculty and students in Querétaro, Mexico.


International Teams Australia will close over the coming months, but it is important to note that the work of RenovArte Café continues. Phil Jones (RenovArte’s team leader) and the Café team feel God’s passion to bring a cup of hope in Jesus’ name to those visiting the café in Querétaro, Mexico. The ministry is currently undergoing a process of transition to another Christian organisation who will be able and willing to support this important work.

Until such time as RenovArte Café‘s transition has been confirmed and completed, International Teams Australia will maintain their support of the team. This includes accepting donations.

Phil and Sandy Jones, our Australian workers serving at RenovArte Café, are also undergoing the process of transition to a new organisation who are willing and able to support them in their important ministry. If you support them financially or in prayer, please contact them directly to find out the new details of how to continue your partnership with them.

Please pray for God to guide Phil through all the logistics involved in transitioning RenovArte Café to a new organisation and for God’s will to be done through the daily interactions of the café staff with customers and the café’s outreach programmes. Please see below for more information about RenovArte Café.
