DeKalb Outreach Center
Just as we believe God specifically has placed Christ Community Church campuses in strategic geographical locations, we also believe God has called us to the Pleasant Street Neighborhood in DeKalb. Within the 1-mile radius there is a high immigrant community, including many single mothers and at risk youth.
Just as the early church in Acts, our heart is to be the physical demonstration alongside the Gospel message within the Pleasant Street Neighborhood. The purpose of the DK OC is to create a bridge within the community to serve people in under-resourced neighborhoods by facilitating ongoing life-enhancing services that result in transformative experiences with Jesus.
As we continue to follow God's leading at the DeKalb Outreach Center, we hope you will want to be a part of the work to join us. To serve with us, please click below.
Love and Faith in Action was started by Dr. George Gutierrez about five years ago. Love in Faith in Action conducts ESL classes, GED tutoring and biblical family discussions. While the main clientele are Hispanic, anyone is welcome to participate. Typically, they meet at the DeKalb Outreach Center once to twice per week.

At Neighbor's House, our goal is to help students reach their potential through literacy enrichment and healthy relationships. Each summer, they run programs across DeKalb County to provide literacy enrichment, social/emotional support, and relationship building for students in underserved communities and income eligible housing. During the school year, they provide homework help, literacy support, and healthy adult interaction for students. To find out more about how to get involved, visit their website.
