Worship with Us

Everyone is welcome! At Kroc Center Ministries, we don't gather to put on a show or impress one another. We strive to be honest about who we are, and our goal is to simply glorify God with our lives; it is the grace of God that motivates us. We hope to point our community to Jesus. Each week, we come together and worship using a blend of contemporary music, classic hymns, stories of encouragement, and sermons based on Biblical truth.  From lifelong Christians to first-time church goers, we welcome everyone to Kroc Center Ministries.

10AM: Sunday Service
You're invited to join us for worship located in the Kroc Center's Rolando room.

Majors Rob & Stacy Birks

Rob & Stacy Birks, Majors, are in their 33rd year of marriage and just began their 30th year of ministry as officers in The Salvation Army. They’ve served God & OTHERS up & down the West Coast, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland & Seattle, plus a few places just off the coast; Puyallup, WA & Sacramento, CA. Their first ministry destination, however – in 1992 – was San Diego. Coming back here, nearly three decades later, was a complete surprise to them – a fantastic one! They have three adult children; Emily, Graham & Lauren, who live elsewhere. “Empty Nesters,” would fit them if it weren’t for a beautiful dog named Charlie.

Stacy enjoys hospitality & fiber arts (she’s been known to participate in Yarn Bombing - it’s a thing). Rob is into baseball, movies and vinyl records. Truth be told, he’s a bit of a music nerd. Stacy prefers the term “Rock Snob”.

The Birks are excited about preaching and sharing life and Jesus with others. They look forward to seeing what God will accomplish in and through The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Center.

Women's Ministry

Our mission is to bring women into the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We provide programming  for worship, education, fellowship and service opportunities, as well as creative outreach that meet needs of local women. We provide materials on evangelism and discipleship of women, as well as Christian formation and life issues. Almost all the materials are written by our women who wish to share their passion and skills with other women.

We meet every Tuesday at 6:00 PM in the Rolando Room. Childcare is provided.


About Women’s Ministries

Women’s Ministries was first called Ladies Home League. It was founded in 1907 in London, England by Florence Booth as a “help one another society” for women who wished to learn current principles of economy, cooking, health and hygiene—informed not only by “the best authorities in Great Britain, but also from comrades in other lands.”  It is international in membership and one of the largest Christian women’s organizations in the world.
