At Doxa Church we seek to glorify God not only by making disciples but by being disciples. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world, and as lights, our service can actually point others to God’s glory! Service and outreach are an important part of what it means to be a disciple but getting connected to an outreach opportunity can often be a challenge. The desire for this page is to help you get connected to the ongoing ministries of people from our church who are already serving the community. Please use these contacts to find out if there is a way you can serve as a small group or as an individual.
Mexico Family Camp
This "Mexico Family Camp" is organized by Amor Ministries based in San Diego. They have been helping high school groups build homes in Mexico for 35 years, but this one trip each year (June 20 to 27th in 2020) is open to participants of all ages, and they encourage families to participate together.
Bob and Corinne Odineal have been participating in this annual family mission trip for 20 years, and they have found it to be a spectacular way to introduce children of all ages to missions. Kids ages 3 and up participate with their families building homes, operating a Vision Clinic, and/or teaching Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the local children. It is a fun way for families to grow and serve together. If you are interested in learning about a mission trip for the whole family, please contact Bob.
The unexpected loss of a job, mounting expenses, foreclosure or eviction, a serious accident or illness, domestic violence, substance abuse, and an uncertain economy can plunge a family into chaos. Safe Refuge for Children and Families (SRCF) offers a hope-filled option for struggling families, made possible by a unique community-church partnership by providing temporary homes for children until the family can be safely reunited.
