the Garnet Initiative

Matt and I are blessed to be apart of the Solidarity community as the Garnet Initiative Directors.  We, along with our amazing team, seek to live and love amidst the Garnet community.  Our neighborhood is 3 blocks by 2 blocks and is located in the east corner of Fullerton, California.  Most of our neighbors are first and second generation Mexican families who have come here looking for a better life for themselves and their children.  Our mission is to facilitate a deep Christ community who actively loves these neighbors as themselves.  We do that by working along side our neighborhood leaders to provide programs, or CFR's (context for relationships), within the community.  Our Garnet CFR's are: the After School Program, the Garnet Teen Center, Gente Inteligente, Solid House and Alpha.  If you are interested in joining us in Garnet or hearing more about what God is doing here, please email me at
