Grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune your instruments. As we fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline — players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given his kids his ultimate playbook. He wants them all to join his team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Gear up, Get ready, Game on!
Key Verse: “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.” – 2 Peter 1:3 NLT

MISSION PROJECT: VBS 2018
El Niño Scholarship Program
“Transforming children, their families and their community through the gift of education.”
Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. As Christianity Today notes, every year of schooling means a better financial outlook for children, their families, and their communities. Without outside support, most El Niño children cannot continue past middle school.
The El Niño Scholarship Program proudly includes 90 students who are currently attending university, trade school or seminary who desire to become doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, and pastors!
What is El Nino?
The rural colonia of El Niño is located between Tijuana and Tecate and got its name from the 1997 El Niño rains. Many people moved to this village of dirt streets and no running water after losing everything in Tijuana floods caused by El Niño storms.
Unemployment and hunger are rampant in El Niño and surrounding colonias. Those unable to get the “best” jobs at factories earning $80–$100 per week are forced to be street vendors, collect cans and metal to sell for food, or find occasional work as day laborers.
The drive from Irvine to El Niño is approximately 3 hours. IPC has been serving in El Niño since 2000.
