Cross: His cross. Crossing borders,
Presence: His presence with us. Our presence with others.
CrossPresence is a nonprofit organization whose emphasis is in the Care and Spiritual Formation of leaders, migrants and deportees. We serve mainly on the border of San Diego and Tijuana but are not limited to that setting. Leaders can be some of the most vulnerable targets of our day and often stand very alone in their leadership role. We attempt to help leaders stay strong, and for those who have been wounded—to grow strong again.
Spiritual Formation encompasses the process and practices we utilize to become more like Jesus, that is, to become more loving.
We also help qualified disadvantaged Mexican leaders with scholarships towards higher education, thus training leaders and helping to break the cycle of poverty. In addition, we support the shelter and healing of migrants and deportees through our Borderlands program.
CrossPresence is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by Shaun and Maria Sheahan in response to the unique environment of the U.S./Mexican border. CrossPresence encourages, accompanies, and trains leaders providing a ramp to deeper spiritual and Kingdom transformation.
Shaun and Maria have been in formal ministry since 1983.
