The ministry of Potter's Clay is founded in the passage of Isaiah 64, reflecting the image that we are being molded alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ as the clay of God the Potter. Potter's Clay partners with Rancho Agua Viva Ministries in Ensenada, Mexico to come alongside the local community in long-term relationships with their seminary students, partnering with the students in service in communities where they are involved in weekly.
