God’s heart is to reconcile all creation to himself through his son Jesus Christ. When we put our trust in Jesus, we are adopted into his church and his mission becomes our mission: to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we pursue this mission every day in our city, across cultures, and around the globe.

Local Engagement

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:8

We love LA! We recognize both its beauty and its brokenness, and we pursue its spiritual, relational, and cultural renewal every day in our homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces. Local Engagement seeks to understand our city, stir our hearts with compassion for it, and equip us to display the gospel—by evangelism, service, care, and friendship—throughout Los Angeles, in whatever context God has placed us.

Below are a few of the organizations and individuals Reality LA partners with to spread the love of Jesus in Los Angeles.

“Let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.”

Titus 3:14

As a church, we seek to meet real and practical local needs with generosity through community.


The Life Cycle of Renewal: Adopted

We are created in the image of an adopting father. Which means that we adopt. This will look different for each one of us, but during the Adopted months of the Life Cycle of Renewal, there are many ways to participate in acting out of our adopted and adoptive identity as the family of God.

Empowered to Connect

We will be hosting a free two-day simulcast conference for anyone interested in interacting in any capacity with adopting families or children in the foster system.

Royal Family KIDS Camp

There are over 35,000 children in the foster care system in LA County alone: Los Angeles desperately needs the family of God to reflect the heart of God to children in the foster care system. One way we’re joining in the work God is doing is by putting on Royal Family KIDS Camp (RFKC), a 5-day camp specifically for children ages 6-12 in the foster care system.
