The Full Circle of Life Ministry supports and defends life from conception to natural death both in the church and in the community. We are actively involved in post-abortion ministry to both men and women, extending the grace and forgiveness which comes from God to all who come to Him.

Persecuted Church Prayer Group

The Persecuted Church Prayer Group is committed to praying for our brothers and sisters around the world who are persecuted for the sake of Jesus Christ. They raise awareness of the plight of the persecuted by praying weekly in our services and hosting a monthly prayer time between services to pray for the persecuted church. Twice a year, the Persecuted Church Prayer Group works with other churches to host larger events — an International Fellowship Banquet for the Persecuted Church in the spring and the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) in the fall.

St. James joins with many other Costa Mesa churches in service to our community through the ministry of Trellis, an organization which actively works with leaders in our city to intentionally mobilize the church to serve the community. Trellis engages St. James in some of the greater challenges in Costa Mesa, specifically homelessness, education and the schools, and cultural integration.
