VRBC members are moving beyond our borders to serve in other areas of the country. We are partnering with Buckner in the Rio Grande Valley to serve the Peñitas colonia, near where we built three houses in June 2009, through their Family Hope Center. In 2015 we also helped plant a church in Peñitas, led by Pastor Refugio Garcia, and it is the only evangelical church in that community. Colonias are unincorporated communities that lack physical infrastructures such as running water, storm drainage, sewers and paved streets. The potential for both involvement and impact is monumental.
We are so excited about this opportunity. VRBC supports our new church plant and Buckner’s Family Hope Center in the Valley with funds and mission trips. If you are interested in exploring ministry opportunities, going on a mission trip to the Valley, or serving on our Valley Serve Team, please contact or Alexy Soto.
