Our Mission

Churches in Action is a Christian institution that was started in Los Angeles California by Bishop Juan Carlos Mendez. Human need is not seasonal, which is why locally, nationally and internationally, our mission is to be a vocal advocate for the hungry and displaced. We travel every corner of the globe to help children and families in need.

Message of the Day

Assistant Chief Dominic H. Choi, was unanimously appointed today by the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners as the Interim Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Congratulations! We look forward to working with you for the continuous improvement of our cities.

Reach out beyond boundaries and inspire hope

People suffer every day from the world’s growing list of problems, and yet all it takes to make a difference is to show care and compassion. Reach out to us here at Churches in Action and we’ll help you reach those in need.

Disaster Relief​

The most critical time for aid comes in the aftermath of a natural disaster. Beyond the destruction to property and lives, food, clean water, and shelter are the only lifelines for victims to hang on to.

Energy Consumption

Global energy demand is projected to double by 2050. By helping others be more conscious about energy-use, we reduce both personal and environmental costs.

Community Service

The needy are not always in some far-away country, they are also our neighbors and we can do our part to give them hope during their darkest times.

Anti-Human Trafficking

There are tens of thousands of human-trafficking victims every year in the US alone, more than half of which are minors. Education and community action is the best way to keep our children safe.

Immigration Issues

One in seven US residents are immigrants, and even more, are descendants of immigrants. Most, if not all, are well-meaning and contributing members of our society and deserve a better quality of life.

Equality & Human Rights

Do onto others as you would have them do unto you. A commitment to peace and tolerance starts with a commitment to empathy and understanding that we are all entitled to the same rights.

En las últimas semanas el ‘círculo de colores’ ha sido más conocido, ya que es la nueva modalidad de estafa que estarían usando supuestos líderes religiosos quienes prometen ganar seis veces más de lo invertido. Debido a que la mayoría de las víctimas son creyentes cristianos, el obispo Juan Carlos Méndez fue donde las autoridades para alertar de este robo y por ello, instó a denunciar sin importar el estatus migratorio. “No se queden callados. Víctimas, salgan de las sombras”, dijo.


In recent weeks, the ‘circle of colors’ has been better known, since it is the new type of scam that alleged religious leaders would be using, who promise to earn six times more than what was invested. Because most of the victims are Christian believers, Bishop Juan Carlos Méndez went to the authorities to alert them to this robbery and therefore urged them to report it regardless of immigration status. “Don’t stay silent. Victims, come out of the shadows,” he said.
