Barry and Linda Felis
Our mission is to take the gospel of Christ out from the church and into the public arena, proclaiming Christ on coastal piers, city sidewalks, in marketplaces, in parks, on college campuses, and in neighborhoods. Anywhere that people move and gather, is our 'pulpit.'
We can't fulfill the Great Commission all by ourselves, so a key part of our ministry is training others. We hold training sessions for anyone who wants to learn how to share their faith. One of our core values is the key role of the local church in fulfilling the work of God in the world. We seek to enter into partnership with local churches that want help in "jump-starting" their evangelistic ministries. Learning to share their faith in the public arena is a tremendous faith-building experience.

Vision & Mission
The vision for the mission's ministry is found in Acts 1:8; "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." It's our desire to fulfill the great commission as the Lord Jesus commanded us in Mathew 28:19–20 in conjunction with Acts 1:8 as His witnesses in our Jerusalem (Huntington Beach), Judea (Orange County), Samaria (United States/Baja Mexico), and to the end of the earth (Over Seas).
It's our desire to equip and encourage the body as a 'whole' in fulfilling the great commission in our community and beyond. We seek to provide each person with the opportunity to not only discover their role in fulfilling the great commission, but more importantly the privilege of being "sent" as His ambassador in making disciples.
