Local Outreach

Local Outreach BlackJessup is passionate about reaching our local community both with the Gospel and for the benefit of the people of Rocklin, Roseville and the great Sacramento area. We have on-going partnerships with ministries ranging from children’s aid to helping meet immediate needs of the homeless community and everything in between. You will find all our on-going partnerships listed below, as well as other service opportunities that are made available to the Jessup family.

Serving with any of these listed organizations can count toward Spiritual Life Credit. Please complete a Spiritual Life Credit Form online and include your outreach supervisor’s contact information. We will send an email to your supervisor to verify your service. Once their verification is received, the report will then be looked over by a Campus Ministries Representative and approved if the requirements and regulations are met.

You can also partner with Jessup in serving our country by 1) Serving on a team (see instructions below to apply), 2) Financially supporting a team by donating today and 3) Prayerfully supporting a team by following their service stories on our summer blog. If you have any questions about our Local Outreach program please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or email us at outreach@jessup.edu!
