We believe that education, coupled with active participation in a Christian community, is a key to breaking cycles of poverty. Our work in Chile has always emphasized both of these components. Over the years our church Iglesia Cristiana Ciudad Satélite has come to see some 80% of its youth going on to university study!
With community workshops, an informative webpage, a strong teaching program in the church for all ages, and soon a Christ-centered pre-school, we expect to continue helping the people of the community to build strong lives.
In the same vein, CCM has embarked on an exciting project to establish a high-quality K-12 Christian school in the city of Talagante, about 10 miles from our home base in Ciudad Satélite. It will be designed to reach students with high academic and leadership potential who might typically be overlooked because of the lower economic class of their family.
We are humbled by the size of the task. Would you participate with us in prayer and financial support? Check out the details here.
Colegio Cristiano CONOSUR!
Let us share our vision of a Christian School in Chile!
"I first went to Chile when I was 15 and the experience changed my life.
Getting to know another culture and seeing how people worship God in this beautiful country was inspiring.
I have been to Chile four times and each time I am in awe at how much love I receive from the Chileans. I am so excited about a new school, because I know that it will be such a blessing to the people of Chile. They have such and thirst and hunger for God and this will allow children to learn about God while also preparing themselves for a better future.
I can't wait to see how God works through this school!"
From the Atacama, the driest desert in the world, in the north; to the fruitful Mediterranean climate of the central coast and valley; to some of the most beautiful (and wet) scenery in the world in the south, Chile is a nation of geographic contrasts. Santiago, where CCM is working, is a very progressive and beautiful capital, with something for everybody to enjoy.
One constant in Chile is the legendary hospitality of its people.

Conosur Christian Ministries (CCM) was formed as a U.S. 501(c)(3) corporation in 1996 to oversee educational and church-planting activities in the area southwest of Santiago, Chile. Jim and Cheryl Green have worked in Chile since 1993, living in-country from 1993-2000. Since then, they have administered the mission from the U.S.
Their church, Iglesia Cristiana Ciudad Satélite is flourishing and very active serving the surrounding community. Now the church, CCM, and the community are embarking on a grand adventure with the coming establishment of an elementary and secondary school, Colegio Cristiano Conosur! We invite you to be a part!
