Jim and Ruth Padilla DeBorst focus on three core ministries in Latin America: Locally, Casa Adobe, the intentional Christian community, where family, friends, and guests grow together in faith as good neighbors with the people of Santa Rosa and the rest of creation. Regionally, the Cohort of Missioners, within which young people engage in a year of service, learning, and exploring their vocation along with peers from contexts other than theirs. Continentally, with the Community of Interdisciplinary Theological Studies, a learning community with formal and non-formal programs, which nourishes the missional presence of Christian lay people and young adults in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking world. They yearn to embody and foster the living out of God’s Kingdom here on earth, where friendships exist across borders, where justice becomes a visual practice, and where love is shared with friends and strangers alike.
