What is Bendele

The Bendele (A Congolese Lingala word that translates to “FLAG” in English) Campaign is an ACCC wake up call to raise $999,900 to be used to purchase our own facilities for worship and community activities. You can join the movement and be part of it by contributing any amount you can.

Why the Need

African Christian Community Church of Southern California (ACCCSC), has been serving the greater Los Angeles (LA) County, the African Community in general, and the Congolese Community in particular for over 21 years. Our congregation mainly consists of immigrants from French speaking countries. In addition to our Bible based teaching, we have been able to provide individuals and families in need with access to numerous personal and professional resources. We hope to continue to positively impact the lives of the individuals and families we serve as we strive to model Christ’s love.

Our church has significantly grown over the last decade and half. We are seeking to purchase our own worship facility in LA to better serve the needs of our growing congregation and community. In order to achieve this, we need your financial support to help us reach our goal of raising $999,900 to purchase our own church facility.

Not having our own facility has limited our ability to provide necessary counseling, referral services and host events for the communities we serve. Having our own facility would help us to ensure that our ministries and day-to-day programs have a place to operate. It would also be a safe space for the children of the families we serve, by giving them a place to learn more about Christ through Sunday school and after school programs. Most of all, it would allow our congregants and the surrounding community to finally have a place to call home.
