In the beginning of 2012, Summit launched a multisite campus in the men's Horizon Wing of the Orange County Jail. In the spring of 2013, doors were opened for Summit to begin a ministry in the women's side of 33rd and during the Advent season of 2014, the women celebrated their first service together.
The vision of Summit is being lived out inside 33rd Street Jail. Our 33rd Street campus continues to do what Summit has always done: reach lost people, connect in Christ-centered relationships, teach truth, serve others, and worship God.
Volunteer teams go into the jail weekly to lead worship services as well as our recovery ministry, reGROUP. It is incredibly important to those who attend at our 33rd Street campus that Summit shows up week after week. This is a part of our congregation that sings loud and prays hard.
The opportunity to serve at 33rd has been incredibly meaningful in the life of Summit Church and in the lives of the men and women who pass through the jail. Through Sunday services, Summit Connect groups, and reGROUP, we seek to make connections with inmates that encourage them to take their next right steps with and toward a God who loves them unconditionally.
If you are interested in becoming a member of Team 33rd, we would love to have you. Please send over an email to our 33rd Street Ministry Coordinator, Lisa Jamison.
