Trip Focus: Inner City Ministry
Addiction. Poverty. Violence. Abandonment. Hopelessness. These are just a few of the problems plaguing the inner city population of one of our country’s largest cities, Los Angeles. However, God is restoring and renewing individuals every day by rescuing them out of the mires of bondage. Chains are breaking. People are finding freedom. Needs are being met. Men, women, and children are meeting Jesus- all because of the Spirit-led influence of the Los Angles Dream Center.
On this trip, we will we will partner with the Dream Center and reach out to homeless men and women, children in poverty, addicts, and any other hurting people who need the Light of Jesus. Your activities may include hosting children’s services in local neighborhoods, praying over people in the street, distributing food to those in poverty, ministering to people on Skid Row, picking up trash, and more. Teams may also attend or serve at the Angelus Temple, the church of the Los Angeles Dream Center.
Our team members will be the hands and feet of Jesus on this trip as we love the broken and watch lives change through the power of Jesus! We welcome you to ask the Lord if you are supposed to be a part of this life-changing experience.
