Are you interested in urban ministries? If so, here’s an opportunity to learn, grow and go right here in Long Beach!

 

For the past few years, Cornerstone Church has partnered with Rescue A Generation, led by Jose Rodriguez. This San Bernardino-based ministry exists to share the Gospel with students in some of the toughest communities of Southern California. It does this by combining Gospel proclamation with life-coaching on school campuses to help students overcome life’s obstacles.

 

A key part of Rescue A Generation’s outreach calendar is an annual conference that is known as Takeover. Historically, urban ministries have been forced to put on low-budget events due to a lack of resources. The Takeover is different. It is a high-quality, professional-level youth conference that is specifically geared to reach urban students with the Gospel and then mobilize them to immediately share what they learn with their communities.

 

Rescue a Generation leverages its influence on public school campuses through assemblies, partner ministries and “Success Clubs” to invite students to a free concert. Students are then exposed to the Gospel through powerful, relevant worship and dynamic speakers. Leaders then equip Students through workshops like, "Sharing your faith, Sharing your story, Sharing your passion." On the final day of the conference, students are mobilized into the streets for an hour-long prayer walk where they pray over residents and their neighborhoods. This shows students that they can have a massive impact for Jesus as they share the Gospel in their neighborhoods.

 

For the past five years, Takeover was limited to San Bernardino. This year, Rescue A Generation will triple its impact by hosting the conference in three different cities: San Diego, Long Beach, and San Bernardino. The Long Beach Takeover Conference is March 28-30. We invite you to serve or participate! Attend Friday-evening worship, join the prayer walk, or pray for the ministry as it seeks to reach and mobilize over 1000 urban students! Email missions@cclb.org for more information.
