Our Story

Coming Together for the Sake of the World

In 1997, Dot Quaintance, a member of Peace Lutheran Church in Las Cruces, NM founded Border Servant Corps as a ministry of the congregation. Since then, the BSC community has served the border region of southern New Mexico, El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México. Together, we do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly in the U.S./México borderlands by:

  • Hosting groups interested in accompaniment-style immersion, where relationships and first-hand educational experiences about border issues are prioritized;

  • Creating opportunities for community members to immerse themselves in education and service in the borderlands; and

  • Accompanying our sisters and brothers on the U.S. / México border.
