At Light & Life Isla Vista, we are not trying to maintain the status quo, but strive to frame the pandemic and other upheavals of 2020 as divine opportunities.
Our life with God is made up of moments – stories that we tell to remind ourselves that God is always there and that we are part of something bigger. We want to hear your story, how God has moved in your life and ministry, and how you’re beginning to understand God’s bigger picture. Below are the stories already shared.
