Last night a 24 year old young man was stabbed to death in North Oxnard, in a neighborhood that Coast Church Ventura has established a Community Group Bible study geared towards young people. Our hearts are absolutely burdened by the loss and we mourn the loss. Yet there is a holy angst that is rising within us to DO MORE, to make a DIFFERENCE in this community.
It may sound crazy, that a new church in Ventura (which is just getting started) would be reaching out to a community in Oxnard, but we believe that usually the crazy ideas are the ones which God is right in the middle of (think: David and Goliath).
We know there are mega-churches around but NOBODY has reached the kids we are reaching in this neighborhood and we see a great need to shine the light of the Gospel to them. Our prayer is that God would continue to use us to reach this dark world and shine brighter than ever before. The bad news is that this junk is happening...THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT YOU CAN HELP! LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN VENTURA AND OXNARD!
