The Space is a ministry to youth and young adults that has been slowly growing and gaining momentum since 2013 in Visalia, California.
At the heart of our ministry is the belief that every human being is made in the image of God, body and spirit, and is designed by him to be the space where his glory dwells. As such, personal identity can be found only within the context of an ongoing love-relationship with Father God through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ and his Spirit.
In 2022, we asked God to provide a physical "space" - a house - where this ministry can be better facilitated to engage in the kingdom work that is needed to empower and equip a generation to rise up and stand with Jesus against a spiritual agenda that seeks to rob them of their futures through sexual addiction and experimentation.
Please read below to find out more, and prayerfully consider supporting us to see this ministry thrive, not only in Visalia but throughout California and the United States.

WHAT DRIVES US
We believe that through the finished work of Jesus Christ on behalf of sinners, God enters the human heart in love, washes it clean of guilt and shame, fills it with his presence, and tends to it daily as his most precious place on earth (1 Pet 3:4).
We believe that Gen Z is under attack in this most precious place, constantly bombarded by input from social media, the internet, and an agenda that urges them to define themselves and their value apart from God.
We protect space and time for young people to know God so that they can begin to understand their true identity as precious sons and daughters of God.
