Opportunities to Engage and Grow!

Bay Area UP

Prayer is the foundation of all our work. We invite you to join us in prayer gathering opportunities, the Bay Area in Prayer Facebook page and especially in circling around a specific local leader, building a relationship of prayer around them, their families and their ministry community.

Following Jesus is a discipline, a “long obedience in the same direction.” LINC believes that all disciples of Jesus have a DNA, a God-given desire to Discover, Nurture, and Act upon their true identity in Christ. LINC DNA groups are small gatherings of three people who are committed to walking together as followers of Jesus.

Contact us for training on the LINC DNA process, or to find a group!

S.O.Y.L. School Of Young Leaders

SOYL is an experience designed to train and guide followers of Jesus ages 18-27 toward leadership and impact in the Bay Area and beyond. Piloted in 2017, SOYL’s purpose is to empower young adults through a dynamic, hands-on experience of faith formation and leadership development. In both the summer internship experience as well as a 9-month program, participants study Scripture, receive communications and life skill training, serve at local congregations and coordinate mission efforts as a team.

Contact Paul Lauaki for more information.

This includes the online/intensive Cross-Cultural Ministry Center at Concordia Irvine, the Ethnic Immigrant Institute of Theology (EIIT), Center for Hispanic Studies (CHS), Specific Ministry in Place (SMP) and traditional residential M.Div. programs through Concordia Seminary in St. Louis.
