LINCOLN HEIGHTS, CA, USA
Our church plant seeks to build the Kingdom of God in the working class Lincoln Heights urban community. In addition to weekly Sunday services, we currently lead four life groups (including a Spanish language group), as well as a vibrant youth ministry. We desire our ministry to be holistic in nature—seeking personal, family, and community transformation. We facilitate trainings to develop and disciple our indigenous leaders, who will root and sustain the work of God in this community. We have begun to use the tools that are essential in community organizing to learn what change our neighbors desire.
Our team is comprised of single adults, young married couples, and families. As a team, we have different spiritual gifts and personalities, allowing us to provide more complete leadership to our budding ministry.
We believe that the best solutions to the challenges facing an urban community are found in the people that live there. We have launched In The City, Inc., a non-profit that mobilizes local leaders to transform their community through specific, focused projects and formal training. We are continually seeking funding for In The City, Inc. so we are able to enhance and expand our impact.
