Information on Who We’re Serving With

Who is Spectrum Ministries?
Spectrum Ministries is a small Christian missions organization located in San Diego, California. Spectrum Ministries was started in 1982 by E. G. von Trutzschler, known by many as pastor von. We are an inter-denominational, non-profit, tax exempt organization.

On the San Diego side of the border, we encourage youth groups, families and individuals to join us on our weekly workdays to help the poor across the border. We have taken thousands of different groups from a variety of churches and schools into Mexico with us to serve. These groups have come from all over the United States and Canada. By taking groups with us into our world, we afford them an opportunity to get a "hands-on missions experience." We endeavor to use our environment in Mexico to help us challenge our young guests to consider how they might make a difference in their world. We challenge them to review their values in light of their Christian faith. We challenge them toward missions.

Spectrum Ministries Vision Statement
Spectrum Ministries is committed to serving the poor and disadvantaged children of Tijuana, Mexico with the love of and in relationship to our Lord Jesus Christ. We also desire to expose and challenge the church toward missions through providing opportunities for church members to join us in our work.

Spectrum Ministries Mission Statement
Our mission statement is twofold:

  1. Fulfilling the Great Commission (“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I commanded you…” Matthew 28:19-20)
  2. Do this by following the greatest commandment (“ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31)
