Incarnate. The word means to "embody" something. To put skin on it. To make it real and tangible.  

We believe that Jesus is nothing less that God, "incarnate" -- God, putting on skin and bone and moving into our world in order to make himself knowable to us. And we believe that the church is at its best when people put skin and bone on the life and message of Jesus, and move into our world in order to make Him knowable.

We are always looking for creative and compelling ways to love people well. Whether it's our on-going projects -- like supporting a women & children's shelter in Casa de Esperanza or serving single parents here in South Orange County, or our one-off projects -- like a food drive for our neighbors, South County Outreach, we are seeking to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our world, particularly where He is needed most.





Each month, TerraNova sponsors at least one project or serve opportunity that is designed to give everyone an opportunity to be a part of making God's love famous. Check out what is happening this month here



Every third Saturday, a team of TerraNovans cooks and serves dinner at Village of Hope (OC Rescue Mission). It's one of the ways that we are consistently making God's love famous in our community. If you're interested in joining the team, email Marty Henahan.  



TerraNova is passionate about single parents in our community. Our One Step ministry is constantly in the process of thinking of new ways to resource single parents in South Orange Country. Find out more information here




At TerraNova we believe God loves all nations and all peoples. We want to join God in His desire to bring love, light, healing and Good News to the world. We are a part of making God's love famous around the world through:  

  • Strategic partnerships with Jesus-followers in South Asia, Southeast Asia, Sub-Saraha Africa, and the Middle East. Many of our partners in these areas come from the TerraNova community, and have transplanted themselves full-time in these regions.

  • Short-term team opportunities. We send small groups of people to work alongside our strategic partners for a week or more.

  • Sacrificial resource sharing. We come from a society with many resources, so we feel compelled to give generously to help those who are suffering, displaced, hungry and hurting.
