Sometimes you don’t have to look far to see the needs that surround us. There are individuals and families right here in our own communities who need help. Through local mission projects, we work with community organizations and city officials to share the love of Christ in a real way—by serving others. We also have specific men’s and women’s small groups that go beyond meeting weekly for Bible study and gather monthly to serve the needs in our communities.
Contact Outreach Director Jason Urbanski (909.393.1577 ext. 216) with any questions regarding local or global outreach.
Boys Republic is a private, nonprofit school and treatment community which guides at-risk teenage boys toward productive, fulfilling lives.

IHC is partnering with Together We Rise who works with hundreds of foster agencies, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to bring programs to foster youth across the nation. They provide thousands of foster youth with new bicycles, college supplies, and Sweet cases (suitcases) so that children do not have to travel from home to home with their belongings in a trash bag. Every day, 1200 kids enter foster care in the U.S. Help us change the way they experience the system.
We host a Sweet Case & Bike Build for local foster children where volunteers help design and fill sweet cases and build bikes. (All supplies are provided.) This is a great serving opportunity for Individuals, small groups, or families (including children). If you are interested in hosting a Sweet Case Build, contact Silvia Jesolva (951-756-2548).
Throughout the year, we assemble teams to serve others who need help through various work projects that include yard clean-up, small home repairs and painting. We may also help to restore our local parks and assist other non profit organizations. Everyone is invited to join our Renovate teams throughout the year.
