Church Planter & Spiritual Live Coordinator/Bible Teacher at LACS
Lorraina joined World Impact's staff as an intern in 2009 after years of prayer and the Lord's direct intervention! After graduating from Biola University with a degree in Christian Education Ministries and a heart for the city, the Lord led Lorraina to serve with World Impact in Los Angeles. Lorraina first served with World Impact for four summers at the OAKS (World Impact's camp and conference center). It was during these summers that the Lord confirmed Lorraina's passion and calling to a life of full-time ministry. Although she is an Oregonian at heart, she is beginning to truly love Los Angeles and even call it home. Lorraina is primarily serving as a simple church planter in Los Angeles, but is also serving at the Los Angeles Christian School as the Spiritual Life Coordinator (overseeing Bible classes, discipleship groups, and chapels).
I would also love your prayers as God continues to open doors for me to venture deeper into church planting. I am currently on a church plant team with three other friends, working in a neighborhood called Pueblo del Rio in South Los Angeles. What an adventure it has been to develop friendships with such incredible people and walk with them as they grow closer to Jesus through difficult situations. Please pray for us as we walk alongside these courageous women of God as they prayerfully begin churches out of their homes. Pray for me as I continue to grow in my Spanish—especially as I translate several Bible studies, lessons, and conversations each week!
Another blessing this year has been my continued involvement at the Los Angeles Christian School, where I serve as the Spiritual Life Coordinator and Bible teacher for the middle school. My love for youth—specifically middle schoolers--has increased each year since serving with World Impact. What a joy it is to learn with my students about God's story and how our own stories are intertwined with His.

Want to partner with me and World Impact in planting churches in the city? I'm currently looking for prayer partners and financial supporters! I still have over $1000 a month to raise, so any financial support will help greatly.
