Jesus Loves HG 

Volunteers shared the love of Jesus by offering free services to the city of Hawaiian Gardens for one day at our annual Jesus Loves HG event.  Individuals and families from our mission church, The Gathering, took to the streets to pick up pounds of trash and litter, while others went to a local laundry mat and prayed for peoples’ needs while paying for loads of laundry. One lady, overwhelmed by the free offer, called home

and had additional blankets brought by family members to wash!  Another group of volunteers welcomed drivers with “honk if you love Jesus”  signs and washed dozens of cars!  The gospel was also shared by individuals through tracts and flyers   inviting the neighborhood to programs, services and resources available at The Way Out Ministries and through our English and Spanish speaking churches. It was such a privilege to present Jesus in “deed and truth!” 1 John 3:18

40 Years of Ministry

May 7, 1984 The Way Out was incorporated with $100.00 in the bank, and our headquarters was listed as a rented house on Arline Street in the City of  Hawaiian Gardens.  I hadn’t even been ordained as a pastor yet (that would happen in October 1987). Our ministry center then was a converted garage, and our only weekly programs were Survivors and Victors Clubs (ages 8-12) and Kid’s Corner (ages 4-7). The teen and adult programs would come later— so would our partnership with the Reformed Church in America, our first storefront rental, and our first  computer!  Some of you may remember our earliest newsletters written with a typewriter and printed in black ink on some awful colored paper! Nonetheless, the hearts of the founders, board members, partners and volunteers were so excited about bringing Jesus to the city.  Much has changed— and oh my how we have grown, but Jesus is and always has been the central message of The Way Out Ministries.  Now that same message of hope is being proclaimed in other local cities and now in Texas and as far as the    Philippines!  So many people have come to know Christ!  Lives have been changed, families have been saved, churches and ministries have been born! 
 We hope you will join us as we celebrate our birthday with a grand fiesta on Saturday, May 4th @ 5PM and our  Sunday Celebration Services on May 5 @ 9AM and 11AM.  We also invite you to schedule a facility tour for you and/ or your group sometime this year.
