Over 2.4 million men and women call prison their home in the US. This is a significant portion of our society that is easily forgotten and even discarded. 2nd Chance Outreach Ministries has a passion for the incarcerated and is serious about reaching them for Christ. In the past 20 years, they have traveled over half a million miles and presented Christ in nearly 1300 concerts in 8 states. Their first goal is to win the lost; but a close second goal is to encourage, strengthen and be a support to believers, struggling to keep their spirits up living within the darkness of prison walls. www.cjorndorff.com
A Step Beyond is a nonprofit organization that provides economically disadvantaged youth with the skills and habits to reach their fullest potential. We do this through a unique approach that combines rigorous, professional dance training complimented by academic and family counseling services. A Step Beyond focuses on North County San Diego’s youth, providing them with the training and resources necessary to build their artistic capacity and be prepared for higher education and careers of choice.
Christians Surfers is a global trans-denominational mission movement, in the US this includes local groups up and down our SD coast, who combine their passion for surfing with pursuit of authentic spirituality. The vision: that every surfer in every surf community would have an opportunity to know and follow Jesus. There is not a day in the week they don’t meet – if you want to get involved visit their various FaceBook pages (e.g. Christian Surfers Encinitas / Carlsbad / your-local-beach-where you-could-start-a-mission!). Surf the waves, change the world, follow Jesus.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America, with a focus on serving local churches and communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ. FCA desires that the coach/player relationship would demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through integrity, service, teamwork and excellence, while building a bridge to the local church in their area. FCA has “huddle” groups on 130 campuses in San Diego County including Carlsbad and La Costa Canyon High Schools.
Fill-a-Belly is a grass roots weekly dinner for the homeless that focuses on building relationships by breaking bread together. This ministry offers locals in the community a chance to personally get to know and share God’s love with those who are hurting either financially or emotionally. This connection creates a support network for those experiencing hard times and gives them the freedom to trust that there are people interested in them and willing to care for them. Every person wants to be known by someone else, to know that they are not invisible or worthless.
Fill-a-Belly promotes relationship through sharing a meal, playing games and talking with each other. This compassion ministry offers opportunities each week to serve the homeless in Encinitas and Carlsbad.

Our vision at Hope Leadership Foundation is that we will impact hundreds if not thousands of young people with hope and opportunity. We want to provide a hope in a God that loves them and opportunities to fulfill dreams and explore life to its fullest. We aim to prepare today’s youth to be tomorrow’s leaders locally, nationally and internationally. We desire to help youth realize and actualize their potential by providing spiritual mentorship, educational and athletic support along with exposure to the arts, while helping them meet their most basic needs. We desire to see San Diego changed one kid at a time.
GIVE TO INTERVARSIRY
InterVarsity is an evangelical ministry serving students and faculty on college campuses and universities nationwide. Our purpose is to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. Our goal in San Diego is to see 1,000 students leading other students to Jesus every year. We are pursuing this goal through training students to start and lead multiplicative and missional Bible studies that reach every campus culture. Currently we have small groups reaching Athletes, Sorority & Fraternity students, residential and commuter students, women, men, Veterans, Latinos, Filipinos, and Internationals. More groups are beginning as students reach the communities they are involved in. In North County, all campuses gather for weekly worship & outreach on Wednesday nights at CSUSM and Bible studies are held weekly at CSUSM, Miracosta and Palomar. NCCC supports the ministry of InterVarsity on several campuses in San Diego. Look on InterVarsity’s website to find a campus near you and get connected!

If you’ve ever been hospitalized, you know how discouraging it can be. The simplest act of kindness—a visit from a friend, a note of care or a word of encouragement—can make all the difference. This is the heart of Chaplain Richard Phillips and the Tri-City Hospital ministry. Chaplain Phillips works full-time through the Healthcare Chaplains Ministry Association to serve Tri-City Medical Center by providing pastoral care to families and individuals who are in need of comfort and encouragement. Richard is being uniquely used by God to bring the love, grace and truth of Christ to patients and their families. He often works closely with the medical staff at Tri-City, meeting with patients or following up with those who are discharged.

The focus of Urban Youth Collaborative is to empower and develop urban leaders in schools where students face longer odds of success. Rev. Dr. Nate Landis, founder of Urban Youth Collaborative, started this organization because of his passion to share how Jesus brings hope, healing, and purpose into hurting lives. The goal is to win the hearts of these young individuals to Christ and connect them to a local church in their area. The program, then, aims to mobilize students as agents for change and transformation in their own neighborhoods. Currently, Urban Youth Collaborative utilizes a coalition 40 local churches that support student-led Bible clubs for more than 2,500 students every week at over 75 middle and high school campuses in San Diego County.
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step on a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions–careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader made the effort to reach out and enter their world.
