Supporting Staff

In addition to the “Founding Family,” there are many other people who are needed to keep our home running and help advance the vision of Tijuana Christian Mission. Taking care of 100 children – feeding them, doing their laundry, taking them to school and helping them with their homework – is no small task! Our staff consists of about 20 people, whose job descriptions vary greatly, sometimes from day to day. We thank God for sending each one of these faithful people to be part of our ministry.
