MEET OUR TEAM 

Oakland City Council divides Oakland into seven districts, we strategically place each of our pastors in teams over the seven districts of Oakland. Together we reach roughly 500 youth weekly. This includes: Weekly Services, SLICE, Home Visits, Leadership Camps, Outreach, + Envagelism. We pour ourselves out because we believe God's love extends to even the least of them.
