We have a growing conviction that the church must be actively going into our community with the gospel and making disciples. The Local Missions Team focuses on community involvement with gospel intentionality, meaning that it's the love of Christ that compels us to come alongside the needs of the people in our city and neighborhoods. And, through words and deeds we display Christ's love so that others might know Him. We have strategic partnerships in various aspects of our society including schools, public health and safety, parks and rec, the homeless and needy, youth and family, foster care, and more. We prayerfully network with these various domains of our city and seek to present opportunities for our church family and community groups for local ministry in Simi Valley and its surrounding communities. Our hope is to build genuine friendships within our city and share the good news of Christ.
Below are some of the local ministries already going on with the church body
Over the past year as a church body we have been partnering with Apollo High School. It started with some women praying over this school and we created “Love Apollo”. We grew this relationship by a beautification project on Serve Day, by our High School Ministry running a lunchtime program and by providing for some basic needs of the students. Be on the look out for more ways to partner with Apollo High School this Fall!
MOMS IN PRAYER
Moms in Prayer is a group of women who gather together regularly to pray for our children, teachers, staff and schools.

Just enter your information with school name and they will direct you to the group at your school or inform you if there isn't a group.
