About Mexico-RED

R.E.D. is an acronym for Relationships, Education and Development and RED also means network in Spanish. Mexico-RED is a ministry outreach organization and an affiliation of like-minded churches and their pastors who share the same values and beliefs, are dedicated to extending God’s Kingdom, and committed to expressing their leadership in life-giving, Christ-like characteristics. Our ministry is founded on the following values:

Relationships: We value loving, sincere, healthy relationships that are biblically based (The Great commandment to love God and love our neighbor ~ Matthew 22:35-40).

Evangelism: We value sharing the Good News of Jesus and obeying His commands (The Great Commission ~Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:18-20).

Discipleship: We value growing in our relationship with God and others through becoming the best followers of Jesus through the diversity of our gifts and callings (2 Timothy 2:2; 3:16-17, Acts 2:42).

Note: A critical component for RED churches in building relationships, evangelism and discipleship is to reflect a heart to help the needy (The great compassion). Since every person is made in the image of God. How we treat others is in direct relationship to how we treat Jesus ~ Matthew 25:34-40.

Ministry Beach-head in Tijuana, Mexico

Mexico-RED has established a key ministry focal point in Mexico at  Zona Norte, Tijuana.

Zona Norte

Keith and Maya Durkin, Executive Directors of Mexico-RED, and Daniela Contreras, Executive Director of our Zona Norte ministry lead the ministry strategy in Tijuana through education, development,  and outreach from a central community center in the Zona Norte district.  This district is unfortunately a central cross-road in TJ for drugs and the sex trade, leaving many children and adults in a very transient environment with few resources and assistance.  Keith and Maya have established the community center as a bridge to build a long-term, trusting relationship with the community, reach out to educate, feed, and aid children in needy situations, and extend a warm welcome in the name of Jesus to all who stop by the community center looking for a hand out and/or a hand up.
