Serving the World

At The Garden, we want Christ to be known beyond the Bakersfield community. We support and fund local pastors in Mexico, Africa, and Eastern Europe. We build international relationships and support missionaries with pillars of prayer to one day fulfill God’s vision for our church family of having 2,000 missionaries on the international field.
