This website is a collection of the various ministry events held throughout Southern California. We’re hoping to expand to outside our current territory. Included will be videos and images from the different events held. Our overall purpose is to display that the passion and fervor for Christ has never diminished. On the contrary, the fire still burns bright for our Savior.
The primary focus is not on the widely held events that are marketed on a national scale. Rather, the focus is on the underground events that happen on a weekly basis throughout churches here in Southern California that do not receive the exposure and marketing that the larger events tend to have. These church groups and events still continue to meet, hold activities and events, and spread the Gospel despite little publicity.
We’re just hoping to share a little of it.
MEET THE TEAM!

Full name is Michael Adam Lacanilao. Often called Adam. Professionally known as Michael. A senior at Walnut High School. Junior Worship Leader at Cornerstone International Christian Church. Lead vocalist of Undone Superhero! Resides in the relatively sheltered ‘burbs of Diamond Bar, Ca. Is the second cousin of Reverend Justin Lacanilao. Started writing at a very young age with the “publication” of his comic book mini-series, “The Christianites” (a gripping tale of four friends combating the devil’s henchmen in their plot to take over their church). Unfortunately, only three volumes of “The Christianites” were written, each consisting of a meager five pages. Adam hopes to develop his writing skills and become either a journalist or a teacher of literature. Usually found singing, keeping a close eye on two mischievous, yet lovable younger siblings, and or walking Wesley the shaggy cocker spaniel. Abhors mathematics in its entirety. Loves to read; be it books, magazines, pamphlets, or plays. Enjoys cold water, shopping on the world wide web, t-shirts, documentaries, and occasionally “ripping” on a bright yellow Gibson Les Paul that he doesn’t deserve. He aspires to be a man after God’s own heart and clings to the promise of Jeremiah 29:11.
Hello my name’s Jude Santos. I’m a member of Pilipino Community Church in Baldwin Park, CA. I’m currently a part of the choir ministry where I lead the bass group as well as lead the choir in times of devotion. On my spare time I’m an avid video game player and poem writer. It’s the latter that God gave me as a gift and I try my best to glorify Him within my writing. I hope one day to be a published poet who uses his poetry to encourage believers as well as share the Gospel message. I enjoy reading different types of literature and I have a fascination with all thing Japanese. Cooking is a secret hobby (not so secret anymore) but I can make a mean fish taco! My life verse is as follows:
James 1:2-4 “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
