LOVING GOD BY ENGAGING LOCAL ‘NEIGHBORHOOD LOOP’ COMMUNITY
“I never planned on planting a church. We are just seeking to love our neighbors, and we will see what happens,” Ken Eastburn of Infinity Church shares. Infinity Church of San Clemente, California is unique in nature and began as a simple act of obedience as Ken and his wife Ali felt prompted to walk and pray for their neighborhood “loop.” Ken and Ali have been involved in ministry for thirty years, most recently through non-profit work. When they moved to San Clemente, it became clear that the Eastburn’s location was “God’s strategic plan.” Their street is a one way loop with a park in the center, consisting of approximately 1,000 residents—presenting tremendous ministry opportunity.
The mission of Infinity Church is simple—it “exists so that people who are far from God are loved and guided into a relevant and passionate relationship with Jesus Christ.”
- Their target: People who are far from God
- Their strategy: Are loved and guided
- Their goal: A passionate relationship with Jesus Christ
Ken finds practical ways to impact “the loop” such as writing his sermons in the park or attending “Yappy Hour” at the dog park. “Ali and I desire to know and seek to love everyone in ‘the loop,’” Ken shares, “We have created awesome community simply by entering into the everyday routine of our neighborhood. I have had countless conversations with locals as a result of hanging out in the park.” Infinity Church has also recently begun their Rockin’ Socks ministry for which they journey downtown to hand out socks to the homeless. This has been a growing experience for members of Infinity Church as some have never before been a part of a homeless ministry.
Infinity Church meets every Sunday morning at 10AM in Calafia Park overlooking the ocean on Avenida Lobeiro. Ken is aiming to grow discipleship opportunities and looks forward to helping the body of Infinity Church to establish deeper roots.
