We want to love our city well. We believe this means connecting with and serving beside the people who call South Bend home, in our neighborhoods and on our streets, and partnering with those who are already doing transformative work in the city. You can find information below about both ongoing and one-time opportunities to jump in to this work together.


Listen to Ryan Yazel (Pastor of City Engagement) speak to our value of Streets from his message below:


Hope Ministries is a valuable partner, leading the way in South
Bend in connecting people together in care for the vulnerable in
our city. Visit for more information on getting involved.
Transformation Ministries has been loving the youth of South Bend through holistic, family-style connection since 2009. We support and serve together in their after school study tables at the newly formed Transformation Center. You can find more information on becoming a tutor here.
One of the best ways to love your city is to love your neighbor. We encourage you to discover your neighborhood and see how you can get involved. Here is a great place to start!
CCDA is an association of like-minded churches and organizations that is a great resource for diverse voices, creative ideas, best practices, and practical tools in our pursuit of justice and grace-filled development in our city.
