Community Outreach

You will find life-changing opportunities to volunteer at PPC assisting any of our outreach ministries.

At this time some of our on-campus outreach is suspended because of the Covid -19 shutdown.  Off-campus food distribution via Solidarity is ongoing and we continue to host Red Cross Blood Drives.

Please contact us for more information about how you can volunteer and help.

NEIGHBORHOOD MINISTRIES

Solidarity   exists to help local churches transform their cities.  We partner with and support Solidarity in several ways to aid in this transformation. 

  • We provide office space for Camino Immigration, an initiative of Solidarity.  Click here to learn more about Camino Immigration.
  • We provide meals and support to Solidarity's Merge ministry for local teens.
  • We collaborate with teen leaders from Solidarity & PPC for our summer day camp program on the PPC campus and the SOLEful summer program at the Solidarity neighborhood youth center.

BEYOND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

  Vizcaino Ministry

The little church called “La Iglesia Puerta del Cielo” meaning gate of heaven (Gen 28:17), serves the very poor who work the commercial farms located in the desert area approximately 650 miles south of Placentia in the center of the Baja Peninsula,  introducing them to the Gospel.
PPC Men’s Ministry constructed this church building for the poor of the Vizcaino area, the largest in Baja Sur, Mexico, and it has served the members since the summer of 2012.  God is using this building, along with additional satellite churches to bring the Good News to this barren desert area of Mexico.  The Sanctuary Building is also used as a Rescue Center when the area is flooded from Pacific Ocean hurricanes that pass over the Baja peninsula.
