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.

Planting Vision Meeting

Nov 25 | 11 AM

Discussion and Q&A on the vision for planting in the South Bay (Torrance, Manhattan Beach, etc) and the steps we'll take over the next few months to support the new church.
This is our second meeting. If you missed the first iteration, no worries. This gathering is for anyone remotely interested in finding out more about why we're planting this new church and the various ways to be involved, including being a key part of launching a new and vibrant, gospel-centered church!

We need your support
