all about us



Our purpose is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ throughout Compton, block by block, by training every person to live out the three primary relationships with the Triune God (UP), with other Christians (IN) and with a hurt and broken world (OUT).


Put it together  Mission projects are another way to join the ministry in Compton.  We need capable men and women who are gifted in the construction field to use their God given talent to build God’s kingdom.


Pray  This is never a secondary task.  We are told that the prayers of a righteous man or woman are powerful and effective.  We desire for heaven to invade earth and for peace and prosperity to be in the city.  On a consistent basis, we will be sending out prayer requests for you to be interceding on our behalf.

Pitch in  The cost of the mission is large so we are looking for people to partner with us financially.  While Emmanuel Church has been our largest sponsor, we really need to expand our funding to allow us to go, build, and serve.
