Grace Point Church Goes to Tijuana
Christopher Stender is an immigration attorney based in Southern California. Outside the office, Christopher Stender performs volunteer work at Grace Point Church.
Grace Point Church, a non-denominational institution located in San Diego, has a strong focus on community service. The church hosts a number of events and fundraisers each year, with additional programs and groups available for both young and adult members. Options range from serving food to the homeless on holidays to more creative opportunities, such as spreading the faith through the media.
Along with local events, the church sponsors a number of missions to foreign countries, among them the annual mission trip to nearby Tijuana, Mexico. There, Grace Point volunteers partner with the Centro Shalom Church to help those living in poverty. Participants will often have one-on-one time with the children in the area for faith lessons and activities to help establish a positive relationship and provide the locals with necessities such as food and backpacks.
