Nothing fires us up more than to see what God is doing around the world. We've always taken our global mission opportunities seriously. From serving the poor in Baja, to caring for orphans in Africa, we strive to support and learn from our mission partners.
We also love our community and we've been serving Malibu and the surrounding areas for over 60 years.
Listed below are some of the ways we are serving in our community, across the country, and around the world.
We would love for you to join us!

Prison Ministry - Malibu Conservation Camp #13
The Malibu Conservation Camp CC #13 is a minimum-custody female camp for up to 105 convicted felons jointly operated by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The Malibu inmate fire crews are utilized on wild land fire suppression as well as county conservation assignments, including maintenance of the State Beaches, local parks, and fire stations.
On the second Saturday of each month, volunteers from MPC offer a time of fellowship and worship through music, devotion, prayer, and art for the women at the camp. Our mission is to share Christ’s love with those who do not know Him as their Lord and Savior and nurture existing believers in faith and discipleship. Through encouragement and support we desire to help them regain self-worth and prepare for a successful integration back into their communities, families, and churches upon release.
