global partnerships

Everything we do is about building relationships of mutual trust, and is grounded in a long-term commitment to serve one another and learn from one another. We are committed to fostering and supporting our global individuals, organizations and initiatives. Our hope is to discern how God is moving and join Him in his work.  Take some time to explore and learn about these opportunities, but don’t stop there. Take the risky step. Find a place and get involved.

Our Global Partners

Sara Gomez & Martha Lopez

Martha  starting the “Tijuana Christina Mission” (TCM) orphanage in 1964. TCM has served thousands of kids over the 54 years, providing them with a safe, loving, Christ-centered environment and an opportunity to attend school and even college.

Sara, her daughter, founded one of the few battered women’s shelters in Tijuana over 18 years ago. It is a safe place where women and their children can escape their abusers, find physical safety, and experience the love, healing and hope of Christ. As their children often have no birth records, they are at higher risk for trafficking because they “do not exist.” Sara works with local authorities to provide legal paperwork for these children.

Pastor Albert 

Pastor Albert began visiting Tijuana, Mexico as part of a relief effort after a terrible fire at the city dump with many houses burned. It was on his heart to be an evangelist and as he ministered among the people, a Bible study started, and the next thing he knew, a church happened! Conditions were and still are very severe in communities in and around Tijuana. People need the Lord desperately.

The community Pastor Albert serves, once in such desperate need when he first arrived there 15 years ago when the old city dump was still open, is now reaching out of itself on a monthly basis to serve the new city dump 20 miles away, as well as serving the homeless and refugees at the border.

Global Disciple-Making Encounters

We are each on a mission to grow in Christ and discover our individual calling to seek and save the lost. In light of this, Fellowship is reimagining our mission trips to accomplish three things:

1. Intentionally disciple participants
2. Lead them into experiences that reorient their heart and mind
3. Inspire a new individual calling to seek, serve, and disciple others locally and globally

To this end, we will be referring to Mexico mission trips as Global Disciple-Making Encounters.

Even though we currently devote almost 20% of our annual budget to Global & Local Partnerships and Church Planting, there are a number of significant ministry commitments and opportunities we have that are not funded or partially funded through our Annual Budget and depend on special “designated” financial gifts from our body.
