Our City is Broken
As we listen to the people of Bakersfield, we see the reality of the pain and heartache. Many have been hurt by circumstances, brokenness, and even the church.
Bakersfield is above the national average for:
- High school drop-out rate
- Households below poverty level
- Single-mother homes
But what if “broken” is not the end of Bakersfield’s story?
What if we can believe again?
What if we can dream again?
We see God writing a new chapter of transformation in the lives of the people of our community.
We see families restored.
We see marriages healed.
We see drug and suicide rates in our city going down dramatically.
Why? Because people are finding a reason…the reason to believe again, and to dream again.
