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 print out a Spiritual Life Credit Form, complete the top portion of the first page and give it to your supervisor or Outreach Assistant to fill out. They will return it to the Womack Student Life Building for you. You may keep the second page as a reference to service requirement and policies. The report will then be looked over by a Campus Ministries Representative and approved if the requirements and regulations are met.
