I have had the blessing to help them in many fundraising events, and to visit their projects in Colombia. they are an organization that truly work to make a lasting change in the communities they work in.
Very organized and professional team. I am a sponsor and want to congratulate Conviventia for the efficient and timely flow of information (letters, reports, gifts, news, ect.) between sponsors and the students back in Colombia. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the team!
This is my third year as a volunteer at Conviventia, and I haven't ceased to be amazed by the wonderful work they do. God has blessed me greatly by giving me the opportunity to be a part of what they are doing.
Working with Conviventia has been an incredible experience!
I thank God for giving the oportunity to serve others through Conviventia.
I had experience with Conviventia as a board member at Genenration One. The group came in and helped us through a two day visioning session. Was sttod out to me id the passion the folks had to make other non-profits as successful as they are. the team was knowledagble and lovin and desird to share their information to make Generation One a more successful oragniazrion. I appreciated the honesty they provided us and we are better today as a reuslt of the parnership we formed with Conviventia. Justin Steele, Board Member at Generation One
Last year I received the extraordinary blessing of being introduced to Missy Christie, Executive Director of CDA-Colombia, and to visit their operations in Bogota and Cartagena. CDA-Columbia’s heartbeat is that passion for the hurting. That passion is exhibited vividly in their work in schools planted in the slums of Bogota and Cartagena. CDA-Columbia’s values of dignity and responsibility permeate the way their work is carried out in Jesus’ name. Through high quality education for children and extensive vocational training for willing adults in the neediest neighborhoods. Lives -- and communities -- are being changed forever. I’ve visited small businesses begun by students of CDA’s vocational training schools. The enthusiasm and energy exhibited by these entrepreneurs reminds me of the joy God gives us when we use the talents He has given us.
If not for CDA… I thought this so often during our trip. If not for CDA, where would these children be? In the slums. Without hope. Inflicting violence upon themselves or others. Continuing the cycle of violence.
Second Mile Mission Center’s Board and staff have also been blessed with opportunities to learn from Missy. It was an added benefit to then see in Colombia those principles of empowerment in action.
I am personally inspired by what God has done and is doing through Missy and her team at CDA-Columbia.

As a board member of GenerationOne in Houston, TX we were introduced to Missy and the CDA organization. Through their giftedness they have provided a frame work and strategy for G1 that is well underway. Their insights and leadership has been the key catalyst to positioning the organization for meaningful growth and effectiveness for many years to come. Thank You!
I have Known Mrs. Missy Christie de Acosta for a number of years. We first met at a Bible school in Dallas Texas during the year 1987. At that time, she was only 17. We eventually got to know one another and worked in the same office together on campus. With that said, over the years, her pledge to helping people has never wavered; just the depth to her resolve has increased exponentially. She is both gentle in spirit and a lion at heart. Missy's character and commitment to serving the populace is revealed every day by the love and respect she has for her husband Carlos, her family, as well as for the people she reaches out too. For these reasons, I do not hesitate in granting my endorsement.
With kind regards,
Dr. Bruce Macdonald

CDA is an exception organization and is sharing their expertise and wisdom to help other non-profts reach a level of excellence that is desired and yet not often achieved. Our organization has benefited greatly by their support and I pray that they will continue to be in partnership with us for years to come.
I have over 30+ years or experience as a professional in the not-for profit industry and can honestly say that CDA is the best and most professional organization I have ever worked with on strategic planning. CDA does not just give you a plan; they stand beside you, work with multiple constituents over 2-3 days sessions. The are wonderful listeners and their processes led us to a great sense of clarity and purpose that everyone understood and embraced.
They are masters at what they do. They are committed to raising the bar for themselves and other non-profits. We are grateful for their ministry, the training, wisdom and expertise they shared and humble support they have given us in our efforts to create and document our strategic plan.
The results have been phenomenal.
I grew up oversees and have worked with many different non-profit organizations over the years; CDA is the most thoughtful, thorough and holistic organization I have ever had the privilege of working with. With a deep commitment to excellence and a thoughtful nuanced approach to their work and interventions they really are making a difference in Colombia. The staff have big hearts and a passion to help as well as the critical technical and professional expertise necessary to help change lives and build a better brighter future.
Conviventia has successfully worked in impoverished and in-need communities. They generously offer their wisdom and expertise to other organizations working in the same field. They have come along side the ministry I work for and have been instrumental in our ongoing efforts to strategize and plan for the future of our ministry!
CDA has been instrumental in our organization. This past April they spent two days helping us with our strategic planning. We're now setup to take our organization to the next level and better serve our community. This ministry is awesome!
If you're desire to take your organization to the next level choose Conviventia.
Misssy and Convuventia, you're Amazing!!
Conviventia has been instrumental in increasing our capacity to serve the poor. They have learned so much over the years and do an amazing job sharing the information and training other nonprofits. They work tirelessly to equip others to raise the level and quality of their work. We are indebted to them for all the strategic planning and thinking they have lead us through.
Great work, not only helping the most needy people to develop their capacities and talents to generate a sustainable transformation in their communities, but also sharing knowledge and best practices to pair organizations.

Es sorprendente saber que la mano de Dios no se ha cortado en esta organización, pues lo que Él hace lo podemos ver reflejado en personas que trabajan incansablemente para transmitir a otros el amor del padre y así mismo dejar que Él los use para impactar y transformar muchas vidas que se están perdiendo. Dios a continuado usando esta obra para que las personas que le rodean lleguen a ser tan bendecidas y puedan ver el impacto en comunidades vulnerables.
Al revisar el pasado podemos ver: Experiencia, Transparencia, impacto en las comunidades y compromiso social de Transformación Sostenible (mas de 16 años de experiencia). Observando el Presente vemos una organización innovadora que comprende los cambios sociales, que mejora cada día para cumplir la labor encomendada por el Creador, "la restauración de las relaciones rotas del Ser humano". El Futuro para Conviventia depara un crecimiento de impacto, vidas transformadas y restauradas como las estrellas del cielo (Personas, Familias, Comunidades y Regiones). Definitivamente DEBES CONOCER LO QUE HACE DIOS POR MEDIO CONVIVENTIA!!!!!
