Stockton, California

Ministry Description

In Stockton, both parents often work outside the home, many homes are single-parent families, and/or they are caught up in generational destructive lifestyles (gang life, entitlement life, addiction, crime, etc…). Many parents struggle to cope with balancing work, family obligations, providing stability, or having the basic skills for a healthy functioning home for their children.

Working under the motto, “Giving faith, hope, and love to inner-city kids and their families,” The Center offers alternative activities to kids who would otherwise be home alone or running the streets. Such activities include Bible Club, recreation, crafts, snacks, camps, and the Learning Center. These programs are geared to teaching the kids the skills they’ll need to become productive members in their communities. More importantly, the kids are introduced to Jesus Christ, giving them a constant in their lives so they can make good decisions and live for Him.

Quick Facts
  • Kids ranging in age from elementary through high school come every day after school for mentoring, homework help, and to attend Bible club and other activities.
  • Children who come to The Center are often leery of accepting people, so missionaries and local volunteers take time to build relationships and lay a foundation of love and God’s Word with firm but loving boundaries.
  • Missionary Bob Margaron is a certified Police Resource Chaplain for local public schools in Stockton. This position allows him to legally introduce students to Jesus on school campuses.
