Local Outreach

As followers of Christ, we are invited and called to preach the good news of the Kingdom of God which does not begin with the ends of the earth but, rather, is rooted in Jerusalem. Through local outreach, we grow into a lifestyle of intentional service at home, in our own Jerusalem, Costa Mesa and the surrounding areas of Orange County.

We value service in the local church, in the community, and through campus ministries. We are individually gifted and working together in those areas as well as utilizing the education we are receiving, we can have a larger collective impact.

First-semester Freshman are required to complete 15 hours of service through their Cornerstone course. Using Handshake, students can easily access local volunteer opportunities in addition to internship and job postings.
