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.
Camp Kilpatrick Juvenile Detention
The Men's Ministry visits each month to bring lunch to those wo are receiving academic awards. Volunteers welcome.
We Partner with World Impact in Los Angeles to reach out to the unchurched poor in the inner city. Volunteer opportunities available.

We are working on formulating teams to serve the homeless community of Los Angeles, to serve meals and to bring fun activities to the women and children at Hope Gardens.
Our women's ministry invites women overcoming addiction and substance abuse to our campus once a month to provide a positive and nurturing Christian environment.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
In coordination with our deacons, we solicit donations outside of our local Ralph's so we can deliver to our Los Angeles mission partners hundreds of meals for families unable to provide their own. Volunteers needed for the week leading up to Thanksgiving.
Operation Christmas Child
Through Samaritan's Purse we collect and send gift-filled shoeboxes to bless children living in poverty around the world during the holidays. This is an easy and fun way to get the whole family involved. Click here to visit the Samaritan's Purse website.
