Christ Community Outreach Center
WHO WE ARE
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 Christ Community Outreach Center 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.

At Neighbor's House, their 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 under-served communities and income-eligible housing.
