Upcoming Events:


Friday, June 1, 7-9PM
Susie Fikse, Executive Director of Hope for San Diego

Our call to repair a broken world through our daily life and work.

Never give money to the homeless... Don't hire illegal immigrants... Drug offenders belong in prison... After framing these issues in black and white for many years, Susie discovered colors and nuances she never imagined in a biblical worldview that transcends political affiliation. How does God's heart for the poor and vulnerable teach us how to respond to the brokenness of our world? Susie wants to help you discover your place in repairing the rips in our social fabric through your daily life and work.

Susie Fikse is Executive Director of Hope for San Diego where she leads individuals and churches to discover God's plan for the renewal of our city and how they can help the most vulnerable in San Diego thrive. In light of Christ's love, Hope for San Diego engages our community to care for and invest in our under-served neighbors.

Steven Cooper - Dec 2017

The God of Sex

God made something glorious, pleasurable and creative when He made sex. But it's confusing too. Are the Bible's views on sex hopelessly outdated? Is there any way to talk about a Christian view of sex that makes sense to non-Christians? What are healthy boundaries outside of marriage? And why are so many dudes afraid of commitment? Harbor City Church Pastor Steven Cooper exposes God's glorious purposes in sex.


G'Joe Joseph - Nov 2017

The Vision Behind Vision Pathways

G'Joe Joseph, Executive Director of Vision Pathways & Campus Outreach San Diego
