"The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, generous inside and out, true from start to finish." - John 1:14 (MSG)

Students have the opportunity to serve within the local community through various partnerships that the Center for Student Action works to maintain with organizations throughout Azusa, Los Angeles, and the San Gabriel Valley (from the Zu to LA). The Center for Student Action offers both on-going weekly opportunities to serve throughout each semester, three-day experience trips to LA, as well as various one-time opportunities as opportunities within the community arise.

The Center strives to create mutually beneficial and sustainable partnerships with local community organizations through foundations of intentional and appreciative community development practices, as established by the Christian Community Development Association.-
