Outreach & Missions

Our heart at Awaken Church is to share the good news of God through words and actions. As such, we are proud and honored to partner with organizations both here in San Diego and around the globe that are making a positive impact within the community.

Community Outreach

In Mark 16:16, Jesus says, “Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God’s good news to one and all.” In Matthew 5:14-16 He says, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” [NIV]

Local Partnerships

Our responsibility, first and foremost, is to reach out to those in our own backyard, the city of San Diego, by meeting practical needs and sharing the Good News of Jesus with people. We are dedicated to raising and releasing each believer to fulfill the Great Commission. We each have a responsibility to do the work of the ministry (James 5:13). Our desire is that people will see the city they live in as their mission field and be the solution to this hurting world.

The Bible says, “All power is given unto Me in Heaven and on earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

Solutions For Change


Solutions for Change is a San Diego-based non-profit organization solving the root causes of homelessness through a unique and sustainable solution driven by family accountability and equipping families with leadership skills that serve as a foundation for future success.

True Choice Medical Clinics


True Choice provides support to women and men regarding unplanned pregnancies by giving them access to information, services, counseling, and even an ultrasound referral, free of charge. Some ways that Awaken has partnered with True Choice include participating in their annual Walk for Life event, holding monthly on-site intercessory prayer sessions, and hosting baby showers to celebrate the women who have chosen life for their babies.

Active Valor

Active Valor is a combat veteran run, non-profit organization in San Diego dedicated to giving new purpose to veterans by pairing them as mentors to children of our nation’s fallen heroes, referred to as Gold Star Children.

We See You, San Diego


Every week We See You, San Diego provides 150-200 of our homeless neighbors, who camp out in the Mission Valley Riverbed, Old Town, & Point Loma areas, a home cooked meal with a full service restaurant-style alfresco dining experience with fresh squeezed juice, gourmet coffee syrups, and a mobile dessert cart. They play loud worship music, give away raffle prizes, and most importantly, sit down, have conversations & pray with people.

Beyond San Diego Partnerships

In addition to our local community outreach initiatives, Awaken Church has cultivated relationships with some of the most well-respected and results-driven organizations that exist today outside of San Diego. Partnering with these organizations allows Awaken Church to play a part in the success of these organizations and provides opportunities for our church to help support them by volunteering to serve or by giving financially. The following organizations extend our reach outside of San Diego and allow our church to truly make a difference worldwide.

LA Dream Center


Founded in 1994, the Dream Center is a volunteer driven organization that finds and fills the needs of over 80,000 individuals and families each month. The Dream Center offers mobile hunger relief and medical programs, residential rehabilitation programs for adults, shelter for victims of human trafficking, transitional housing for homeless families, foster care intervention programs, job/life skills training, counseling, basic education, Bible studies, and more. They work to meet people where they are at and to bring them hope beyond what they have previously known.

Catherine's Children's Home


Catherine’s Children’s Home is a Christian organization and ministry that cares for the well-being of children who are orphaned, at risk, and/or have special needs in Mexico. In addition to being an advocate for children, Catherine’s Children’s Home also provides refuge for mothers and their children and educates parents for home-care. They currently have an orphanage in Mexico, Casa Hogar de Catherine’s A.C., and are in the process of establishing a special needs children’s facility. We currently support Catherine’s Children’s Home through the generous donations made by members of our church.

SHE Rescue Home


The SHE Rescue Home provides a secure haven for young Cambodian girls who are at risk or who have been rescued from sex-trafficking. Each of these beautiful girls deserves a safe place to live, where counseling, medical attention, and educational and vocational training can take place in a protected and loving environment. The SHE Rescue Home provides a micro-enterprise business to equip the families of the girls with skills that will empower them to flourish and generate their own income. We currently support the SHE Rescue Home through the generous donations made by members of our church.
