At Doxa Church we seek to glorify God not only by making disciples but by being disciples. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world, and as lights, our service can actually point others to God’s glory! Service and outreach are an important part of what it means to be a disciple but getting connected to an outreach opportunity can often be a challenge. The desire for this page is to help you get connected to the ongoing ministries of people from our church who are already serving the community. Please use these contacts to find out if there is a way you can serve as a small group or as an individual.
Union Gospel Mission Sacramento - Homeless Outreach
Contact: Mike Spiro at firstname.lastname@example.org
Doxa Church is taking the next step in our partnership with the Union Gospel Mission to help serve the homeless in Sacramento. In addition to our interns/pastors preaching there once a month, we are looking for people willing to go and be a light in the community by serving dinner and being Jesus to the homeless on the 2nd Saturday of each month. If you or your small group are interested, please contact Mike Spiro.

Hearts Landing Ranch exists to create a community to impact a community by restoring lives through rescued horses. Hearts Landing Ranch is looking for believers to share the love of Christ through one-on-one mentorship (1 hr/week at the Ranch), community movie nights, and other volunteer work. Our current two biggest areas of need include a military veteran to act as a liaison for veterans coming to the ranch for Mental Health Services as well as a Volunteer Coordinator/Admin role. To learn more about these or other positions, please contact Donna.
Mexico Family Camp
This "Mexico Family Camp" is organized by Amor Ministries based in San Diego. They have been helping high school groups build homes in Mexico for 35 years, but this one trip each year (June 17-24 in 2023) is open to participants of all ages, and they encourage families to participate together.
Bob and Corinne Odineal have been participating in this annual family mission trip for 20 years, and they have found it to be a spectacular way to introduce children of all ages to missions. Kids ages 3 and up participate with their families building homes, operating a Vision Clinic, and/or teaching Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the local children. It is a fun way for families to grow and serve together. If you are interested in learning about a mission trip for the whole family, please contact Bob.
The unexpected loss of a job, mounting expenses, foreclosure or eviction, a serious accident or illness, domestic violence, substance abuse, and an uncertain economy can plunge a family into chaos. Safe Refuge for Children and Families (SRCF) offers a hope-filled option for struggling families, made possible by a unique community-church partnership by providing temporary homes for children until the family can be safely reunited.
