Renewing the South Bay for Christ

Jesus said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”  

(Rev. 21:5)

Beauty & Brokenness

God loves the South Bay. Sometimes the South Bay is beautiful, sometimes it is broken, and sometimes both. So how does the heart of God respond?

Jesus came to celebrate the beauty of all he made, while simultaneously moving toward what is broken in order to heal it. What would it look like for a church to have God's heart for the South Bay?


For every 1 Southern California church that opens, 4 are closed. 


Nearly half of South Bay residents are unaffiliated with a religious organization.

Knowing Jesus Changes Everything

Jesus came to bring his beauty into brokenness. The cross is a snapshot of what his love looks like. It's as if he's saying two things at once: yes, it is this broken; and yes, my love is even bigger than this brokenness.

What does it look like for a church to seek not only the experience of that love, but to love the South Bay as God loves it - celebrating the beauty and seeking to enter into the broken places and pains?
Over the last 10 years, God has used Pacific Crossroads Church to love LA. PCC has now begun the process of planting daughter churches across Los Angeles. Our hope is to share with the South Bay how God has been transforming and healing broken lives like ours.

Christina Doe

Christina accepted the role of Director of Ministries at PCC South Bay and is incredibly excited about making the South Bay church an incredibly warm, hospitable, and discipleship creating environment for everyone on the spectrum of faith from the non-believers to the cheerleaders. 

She loves the South Bay! Four and a half years ago, she moved to the South Bay from New York City and that is where she fell in love with Jesus and also met her husband. Her life motto is to follow and obey God's will and go wherever He takes her and her husband!
