Presbyterian border ministry site celebrates 30 years

December 3, 2014

Frontera de Cristo, one of the six sites of Presbyterian Border Region Outreach, celebrated its 30th anniversary last month.

Frontera de Cristo is a binational ministry based in Douglas, Arizona, and Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico. Frontera de Cristo works in six areas of ministry: church development, healthy ministry, family ministry, a community center, mission education and a just trade center.

“The border has given me eyes to be able to see that one of the scriptures Jesus has called us to is crossing borders,” Mark Adams, the ministry’s U.S. coordinator, told the Presbyterian News Service in July. “People of the border have taught me that God can and does work in surprising places.”

The Arizona Daily Star covered Frontera de Cristo’s anniversary celebration. Read the story here.

  1. Congratulations to the border ministry. Our Presbytery really enjoyed learning about you from Jocabed Gallegos Viesca back in September 2014.
