He is now pastor emeritus at Southside Presbyterian. In the 1980s John Fife co-founded the Sanctuary Movement in the U.S. The movement organized over 500 churches to help the refugees cross the border and find sanctuary.

John Fife was among the leaders of that effort and continues to work closely with No More Deaths.
