Missional Engagement

Every day around our city, there are stories unfolding that enact the transformational love of God. A child without a safe place to live is brought into a loving home. A woman without shelter tries on a donated pair of shoes and believes she can rise out of her circumstances with a little help. One human being looks another in the eye and compassionately asks, “Tell me how you got here. What’s your story?” and then LISTENS.  God is enlarging the hearts of all people through such engagement. Every day, God is moving through people to do His work and will in the world.  We want to be these people. 

Our commitment is to bring you opportunities, in both physical and digital environments, to missionally engage in what God is doing in our city and across the world.  You’ll find other like-minded people here and build strong friendships with others who have awakened to this call of God to be the good neighbor – every day, everywhere, and with every one. 

We hope you visit this dynamic page often to engage these stories – and decide to become part of them yourself!

FOSTERALL

FosterAll guides parents through successful foster/adopt journeys and creates a community of support for children and families.

HOW CAN YOU HELP:
VOLUNTEER at a group home on a quarterly, monthly, or weekly basis (e.g. tutor, mentor, teach/play a skill or sport, host a craft activity, help with Christmas Party). Opportunities are open for individuals or small groups, in-person or virtually!

DONATE GIFT CARDS for new foster families and youth living in group homes (e.g. restaurants, Postmates, Target, Amazon). These are incredible provisions to families as they juggle new dynamics in the house, and blessings to youth as they can feel discouraged and forgotten on special occasions like birthdays and Christmas. Email electronic gift cards to serve@belairpres.org or mail to Bel Air Church: 16221 Mulholland Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90049.
