Last year while standing in MacArthur Park in L.A. God placed a burden in the hearts of my wife and I. While taking in the beauty of God’s creation alongside the broken- ness of humanity we knew this is where God desired to plant our family. Since then we’ve shepherded our children through the reality of God leading our family to root in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is a city where God is gathering the nations into the neighborhoods. The greatest level of diversity in Los Angeles is found in South L.A. County and we believe you can reach the world by reaching this area.
Our desire is to plant a gospel-centered, multi-ethnic/cultural/generationally led multiplying church that mobilizes its members to engage L.A. through the F.A.B.R.I.C. of life in the City of Angels.
We’re asking believers and churches to prayerfully consider helping us reach South L.A. County and the world. We’re seeking partners who think creatively when it comes to mission all the while possess a desire to invest in a work that is designed to incarnate among the neglected and make appeals for them to know Christ.
On the frontline,
The Horton Family
The Nu'u Family
Raised in the neighboring area of Los Angeles, church planting as a pastor's kid has played a major part in my life. Alongside my father, we planted a church in the surrounding area of Los Angeles, California. In 2002 we relocated to Independence, Missouri to plant another church.
As an adult, the strong desire to go back to my roots to continue ministry has been consistent. While transparent with my wife (Kim) about this, our prayers for ministry in L.A. had soon begun. We prayed that if it's God's will for our family to relocate, we'll be obedient to His calling.
In 2014, Kim and I took a trip to L.A; this was her very first time in Los Angeles. It was also a time that my wife and I had been laboring in prayer for a church plant of the area in which I was raised. It was then, shortly after Kim and I took that trip, that God put us on one accord to relocate our family of four to L.A. to continue the work of His kingdom.
Long beach is a city within LA County that we believe God is gathering nations into the neighborhoods. Our hearts desire for this city is to plant a gospel-centered, multicultural and multi- ethnic generationally led multiplying church’s. Through the process and growth we pray that it will impact the world.
We are seeking all generations of believers who have a burning desire to join us in this journey to plant Reach Fellowship in North Long Beach. We are praying for families, churches and individuals that have a desire and passion to spread the gospel and put in work for the Kingdom of God. If this is you, we would like you to pray about partnering with us as we continue this mission to reach the masses with the Word of God.
