The local church is an instrument of influence in our neighborhoods and around the world.
We create experiential and visual ministry resources. Our educational resources are valuable in helping set a larger context for the ongoing conversation about the border and immigration.
Consistent monthly partners and general donations build the foundation that help Border Perspective fulfill its vision of serving marginalized communities on the U.S./Mexico border.
Dedicated to change.
For most people the border is only a holding zone, a stopping point, a place of poverty where the threat of violence hangs in the air like smoke. For the Moyas it is home. Because they rooted their lives there, they are uniquely positioned to care for immigrants and carry God’s love to displaced people. For twenty-five years they have ministered to immigrant families on the border of Texas and Mexico.
Hugo and Eunice Moya run Iglesia Misionera Cristo Vive, a house church founded by immigrants for immigrants in South Texas. Iglesia Misionera Cristo Vive is located minutes away from the Reynosa/McAllen border crossing, the U.S. Border Patrol’s busiest station for apprehending and detaining migrants suspected of entering the country illegally. For over two decades they have persisted in the slow and unrecognized work of church building, advocacy, and hospitality. As the number of migrant detainees at the border grows, the Moyas continue their work of ministering to immigrants—this time on the front lines.
