Local Missions

Acting Locally

"...you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria...". (Acts 1:8)

We believe God created us to work together for the good of our city and live that out with our local partner organizations.

Visit our Volunteer Hub to act locally in Costa Mesa and Orange County to live as God's witness.
