Southwest L.A.–With Love Community Market & Cafe
With Love Community Market and Cafe is a Christ-inspired business in Southwest-LA whose purpose is to address the health and employment injustices prevalent in the area. While our neighborhood is forsaken by big business and grocery stores, we believe that it is NOT God-forsaken. In addition to providing the community with healthy food options in an “urban food desert,” we will also have community education classes, job training, internship programs for youth, and much more! For more information, check out our website.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes
PLC supports Jason Mills who has been the San Diego County Inland Director of Ministries for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) since 2007. FCA challenges coaches and athletes at all levels from professional to junior high to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is celebrating 60 years of ministry this year! A story Jason recently shared was about a coach who came to his Sunday Bible study for coaches and then decided to take his relationship with Christ more seriously. “Since then God has changed his marriage, changed his coaching and totally transformed him in every way. That coach is now inviting other coaches to the Bible study and planning events so FCA can have more impact in the community.” Praise God for His work through FCA!
