OUR VISION IS TAKING SHAPE



Validated Projects: Bridging Borders/Not Church, Hope for Life Chapel/RV Ministry, Adopt an Elder/Build a Bridge, COA Meal Program, Creating Joy, Little Brown Mission, Placentia Community Outreach & Church Transformation, Power 4Youth Mentoring,  Rising Tide After-School Program, Shower Plus Ministry.  Website
Los Ranchos Challenge

Funds Distributed YTD - $229,415.00

$292,700 has been set aside for matching grants to increase long-term mission from congregations and individuals in Los Ranchos Presbytery. Each gift to a validated project will be matched dollar for dollar. Your generosity will be doubled. This money must be designated before 2017 and be above and beyond our current mission giving. $229,415.00, or 78% of our fund, has already been distributed to our Validated Projects.
If this is to become a reality we need people like you--people engaged in the mission of Jesus Christ--to prayerfully consider significant gifts toward new and expanded mission.
