Sami DiPasquale lives with his family in an immigrant community on the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas where he serves as the executive director of Ciudad Nueva Community Outreach. Sami holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies (International Development) from Wheaton College in Illinois, and an MBA from the University of Texas at El Paso. Sami was born in Jordan and spent the majority of his childhood in the Middle East - living in Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt and India before completing university in the United States.
Sami has spent the last fourteen years immersed in refugee and immigrant communities in the United States. He spent three years working in various aspects of refugee resettlement with World Relief in the Chicago area, and the past eleven years working at Ciudad Nueva with youth and families who have recently arrived in the United States over the border from Mexico. He serves on the board of directors of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) in the United States, chairing the global connections committee. Sami’s driving motivation is to join others in bridging divides and moving toward reconciliation with God, his neighbors and the rest of creation.
