We are transformed as we let the light of Christ shine through us and discover a love that is larger, a faith that is richer, and a life that is worthy of the name that has been given us as Christ Church!

In His Name,
The CCA Missions Committee

André House

(click here to contact volunteer coordinator Elizabeth Wunsch)

André House is a ministry to the homeless and poor populations of the Phoenix area. From its modest beginnings in 1984, André House has grown to be a significant provider of basic and transitional services in Phoenix and a leader for social reform in this state. Despite its size, it has not lost the hospitality which is its essence. Throughout the Diocese of Phoenix, André House is recognized as a place where faith and service meet, where generosity is discovered and praised, and where the Body of Christ both serves and is served. Dinner service and sorting clothing and other donations, hold a donation drive for clothing, toiletries, back packs, blankets, and sleeping bags.

Note: Andre House serves the chronic homeless; those that suffer from substance abuse, chronic illness or physical disability, serious mental illness, and developmental disabilities. Many of these
people are not qualified to seek shelter in a homeless facility and are living on the streets full time.

Border Ministry

(click here to email ministry leader Keri Westphal)

(click here to email diocesan ministry leader Rev. David Chavez)

Jesus calls us to live into a "borderlands spirituality" which straddles the frontier between the Kingdom of God made real and the Kingdom yet to come. Cruzando Fronteras (CF) is the vision of Lutherans and Episcopalians, prompted by our bishop's call to explore a new model for ministry following previous work of Episcopal Border Ministry.

Please help us by:
- Praying and taking action with those involved in global mission along the Arizona/Sonora Corridor.
- Advocating for humanitarian treatment of migrants, refugees, detainees, and all who live along the border.
- Promoting comprehensive immigration reform.
- Collaborating with Lutheran, Church of Christ, Anglican communities, and United Church of Christ in Mexico, Latin America, and around the world.
- Developing Latino/Hispanic congregations in the region.
