Border Perspective serves families on the U.S./Mexico border. We equip leaders, advocate for biblical justice and mobilize the church into action.
Border Perspective provides educational border trips and uses gallery-like exhibits, written stories, and artist talks to challenge beliefs and understanding about a complex and tumultuous region of our country.
Border Perspective started as an exploration trip along the U.S./Mexico border, showcasing real stories of the people who live there. In early 2017, Yonathan and Jordan Moya took a 9-day photographic journey along the border, traversing almost 2,000 miles through the southern states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
The Moya brothers have lived most of their adult lives in the Midwest, but they grew up on the border. Yet, despite their upbringing, they realized they didn't know everything about life on the border.
The purpose of their initial trip was to gain and share a fuller perspective on what life on the border is really like. They had no agenda—only to document life on the border and learn by listening to the perspectives of the people who live there. As they took part in different dialogues, they embraced a fuller understanding of the place they still call “home.”
Border Perspective serves as the mobilization and equipping arm of Iglesia Misionera Cristo Vive, an immigrant church ministering and serving marginalized communities on the U.S./Mexico border.
