EAST LA

LINCOLN HEIGHTS, CA, USA

We are a cross-race and cross-class community-based church that seeks to develop and build out the Kingdom of God in the urban working class neighborhood of Lincoln Heights. In addition to weekly Sunday services, we currently lead six 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 community organizing work to learn what change our neighbors desire. One of those main physical concerns we've been working to address is the housing crisis that affects our community acutely as well as the city more broadly.

Our team is comprised of relocator and local members. As a team, we have different spiritual gifts and personalities, allowing us to provide more complete leadership to the ministry.
