STOCKTON

AMERICA'S MOST DIVERSE CITY.*

*According to US News and World Report, Special Report  2020

CITY OF PROMISE

STOCKTON

Make an impact for God’s Kingdom while being equipped for ministry in America’s most diverse city.* Stockton, California is one of the largest cities in California’s central valley and there is a desperate need to make disciples who make disciples by sharing the love of Jesus.
 

  • 320,000 people, but less than 7% are evangelical Christians

 

  • More churches have closed than been planted for almost two decades in Stockton

 

  • If every believer made one disciple per year, we would reach Stockton in less than one decade

Come and be a part of changing the tide in Stockton by equipping others and fulfilling God’s promise for salvation and new life in Jesus for everyone who believes.
