I LOVE MODESTO -
Started with two questions back in 2007 — Why is our city on some of the “worst cities in America” lists? What if our church or churches were to suddenly disappear from the Modesto area, would anyone even care or notice? With a lot of dreaming and planning came March 7, 2009. Over 1200 people showed up to love our city in practical ways. We did this two more times in 2009 and two times in 2010 with a total now of around 5000 people who have been a part … young, old, able, disabled, people from a church or no church at all.
“Love Modesto is a great example of how our community always comes together as a family. It showcases the types of partnerships we need now more than ever in order to keep our community beautiful. To see the outpouring of concern and love for our community is encouraging and I hope it is something that we will see continually grow.”

Catalyst (formerly City Ministry Network)
City Ministry Network exists to be a catalyst for partnerships in the transformation of neighborhoods by serving and linking the Church and community organizations for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Every last Thursday of the month, Ministry leaders from our community gather to: pray, share, learn, and discuss our community and how to best serve its needs. City Ministry Network provides educational opportunities for any and all Christian Ministries in our community.
Tapestry, a ministry of Youth for Christ
