Pastor Javier Leyva pioneered the idea of a neighborhood person-to-person ministry while working the colonias of the Rio Grande Valley in the 1980’s.  The mission of each walk is simple and uncomplicated: greet your neighbors, be a friend and discover their needs.  The needs uncovered and services offered to meet them are diverse.  Casa Hermosa provides pastoral care and support across a wide range of needs including funerals, baptisms, hospital visits, weddings and home or business blessings.   Beyond these basic items that only scratch the surface, the question of “do you have a need” can expand into many things. And so it is with Casa Hermosa and Pastor Leyva as he walks the neighborhoods of New Braunfels, looking to meet the people, walk with them on their life journeys, and assist with their needs.
