Oxnard Revival Center hosts luncheon meeting with Community Partners
On Tuesday March 14th, 2017 Oxnard Revival Center hosted a Network session with various organizations, agencies, and individuals throughout Ventura County. Among the guests were representatives from the Health Care Agency, Ventura County Public Health, Select Staffing, Interface, Food Share, Bethany Christian University, Summit Bible College, Dignity Health, Radio Oasis, Oxnard Police Department, United Blood Services, Oxnard School District, Ken Klopman with Oxnard Youth Safety and many others.
The purpose of this meeting was to bring a diverse group of community leaders and individuals to discuss the needs of under-served families in our communities, as well as to plan and strategize the 3rd Annual ORC community resources fair “Mi Comunidad Primero,” “My Community First”. We had the honor of having a few guest speakers, with Oxnard Police Department’s Chief Scott Whitney being our key speaker. The Chief’s message was about the need of Community Engagement between the police department and the “Church” community.
Speakers representing ORC were Assistant Pastor, Larry Guerrero, Youth Director, Eli Hernandez, and Junior High Director, Louis Ramirez.
“There is a great need out there, and there is whole lot more we can do as a community. I am so thankful and grateful for all these individuals that have committed to partner up with us in our efforts for the Greater Good.” – Adam Lopez- ORC Community Liaison
“Churches are a pillar in communities across our County. Strengthening and uniting with our law enforcement and other entities for the good of the people is what this is all about. I don’t think there wasn’t a person in that room that did not appreciate the Chief of Polices message.” – Sandra Tovar – Director of CATCH program
