First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park

The Shelter
  This is a rough draft of the information about the First Southern Baptist Church’s Shelter. We will be adding more soon so please come back again!


In 1980s and 1990s, Drake clashed with officials of the city of Buena Park when he “turned his church parking lot and a church recreation building into a makeshift homeless shelter…”, housing groups of homeless persons for months at a time. This activity led to his conviction in July 1997 of violation of building and property usage codes.

For (period of years) the shelter at the First Southern Baptist Church of  Buena Park has helped countless homeless find the necessary help needed to re-group and start a new life. The shelter has also allowed many individuals to create a life by becoming part of the shelter’s need for volunteers to feed, cook, clean, help with donations, provide security and administrate the running and operating of a shelter.

From providing 2 meals a day, 7 days a week, not only to those residing there, but to the homeless and needy families within the community.  Many other churches who minister on site within the Sanctuary also provide evening meals on Sunday after worship service. A few also gives hair cuts free to those who attend service and meals.

Were In! Join us and thousands more for Call 2 Fall

The Call 2 Fall Declaration comes straight from the pages of Scripture:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14).

The journey back to God, to His forgiveness and favor, begins on our knees in humility and repentant prayer. Consider the words of the Declaration prayerfully:

I will answer God’s call to fall on my knees in humility and seek His face in repentance so that He might forgive my sins and heal our land.

Visit from the Buena Park Community Clinic

This Thursday we had a visit from the mobile RV unit from Buena Park Community Clinic. The doctors were all very friendly and saw several of our residents. They bring the mobile unit to places around the community and provide healthcare to people in need. We thank them for their visit and welcome them to come back any time.
