Stand to Reason

Stand to Reason trains Christians to think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity and classical Christian values in the public square. We encourage Christians to develop coherent answers to questions that challenge Christianity so that their convictions are deepened, their skills increase, and thereby are emboldened to share the Gospel.

Trellis - Homeless

God had been connecting His followers together who cared for people experiencing homelessness in Costa Mesa and the Trellis - Homelessness came into being out of a need to work together, collaborate and pool resources in order to be more effective in furthering the Kingdom! Our vision is to unify the churches who provide services to those experiencing homelessness in Costa Mesa and empower them to work together to realize the Kingdom of God for those often seen as the least in our city, while collaborating with the City of Costa Mesa in a manner consistent with our values.

Young Life

Young Life began with a few simple ideas about sharing the truth of God’s love with adolescents. Seven decades later, those simple ideas have become time-tested methods for reaching out to middle school, high school and college students in friendship and hope through clubs, opportunities to grow and serve, camps, and mentors.

And if you're a parent, or simply an adult who cares about kids in your community, Young Life welcomes your involvement. There are a variety of ways you can serve and impact the lives of kids in your neighborhood and around the world.
