Encuentro is a summer program available to Methodist students, faculty, staff, and pastors. It seeks to broaden relationships between Duke Divinity School and the Methodist Church in Mexico.
The program includes stops along the U.S.-Mexico border, from Tijuana, Mexico to Nogales, Ariz. Participants have conversations with experts on immigration and visit ministries on both sides of the border that work with immigrants. Participants worship and share stories and meals with Mexican hosts.
Encuentro is sponsored by the Hispanic House of Studies and the Thriving Rural Churches Initiative.
