Inner City: Bakersfield

In Bakersfield the primary way we empower churches is to come alongside them and offer training in:

  • Evangelism
  • Follow-up (of new believers)
  • How to make disciples
  • Leadership development

Eva Patterson with her son, Pastor Stanley Patterson, shared during our Annual Fall Dinner on October 22. They explained how Cru was instrumental in assisting them and their church in training individuals how to share the gospel and makes disciples.

Homeless Care Kits

A blanket, gloves, scarf, cap, socks, hygiene basics — and a clear gospel presentation — can make a difference for the homeless in our city today.
