Immigration Task Force of Denver Presbytery invites you to:

BORDERS, MIGRATION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

The reality of life on the Borderlands is much more complex and unjust than most people realize. Frontera de Cristo (FDC) receives delegations for immersion experiences to build relationships and understanding across borders. FDC is 1 of 5 ministry sites of the Presbyterian Border Region outreach. This visit provides delegations and hosts the opportunity to share and learn from each other from both sides of the border.

FDC is a collaborative ministry between Presbyterian Churches in the U.S. and Mexico engaging in ministries of compassion and empowerment as well as promoting mission education, family and health ministry and church and community development so that people in both Mexico and the United States experience joint mission on the border.
