Frontera de Cristo’s Mission Education Ministry focuses on building relationships and understanding across borders. We have facilitated the crossing of borders for more than 400 persons a year who wish to enter into relationship with their sisters and brothers in Mexico. These trips and the insight gained help churches, presbyteries, seminaries, and individuals reflect and act biblically and theologically on what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ when borders divide.
In addition to working with faith-based organizations, Frontera also provides immersion experiences for universities, leadership groups, and schools. These experiences help individuals develop a greater understanding of border realities, the phenomena of migration, and our connection to one another across borders. We welcome your visit! Details regarding immersion experiences can be found in our Mission Delegation Manual.
Through mission delegations, newsletters, and speaking engagements in the US and Mexico, we help people grapple with how to respond in faith to the immigration crisis. Our workshop entitled “Immigration and the Churches’ Responses” has been given in churches on the border and across the interior of the US.
Frontera de Cristo also facilitates border-to-border mission delegations to Chiapas, Mexico, based on the theme “Coffee, Migration, and Faith.” Click here for details about this year’s delegation.
