Mike Glenn has been living in Newport Beach for about 17 years after moving here chasing his career opportunities. Mike was upset when the government seized his friends property just like that, He decided to be more involved with what happens in the city And found out a way in which he could have a voice in the community. He took the advice of his 3rd Grade teacher who used to say it only takes one person to get anything started, one person willing to accomplish anything.
Mike has now founded: Save Newport, a Non-profit focusing on local news, events and politics in the City of Newport Beach.
Mike Believes one of the best ways to see change happen is to get involved in your local counsel meetings and even run for office.
Mike is going to share his thoughts on how two cities need to resolve problems, be better neighbors and Thrive Together.

There used to be a time when a lot of missionaries to the world came out of the United States. This time it seems like the US is receiving them from other places in the world.
In this episode we are talking with Gabe Andrade, a missionary from Brasil (and apparently a great Cook too, we can't wait to find out soon!).
At only 21 years old he was called to come to Costa Mesa and now he is known as the "Estancia guy" because he is part of another Christian Club in this Highschool.
Mili and him are talking about how the 2 clubs can work together. Mili is gonna share how her spiritual CPR lessons are gonna bring an awakening!
Brasil here we come!
In this episode we are talking with Chris Kretzu from South Hills Church in Costa Mesa. In the wake of another school shooting Mili brings some thoughts to the table about anger, fear and loneliness. What if we look at our past as shaping us, but no defining us.
What if we look outside of ourselves, of what feels good to me, what is comfortable for me and start putting the needs of others first. We often hear only "good vibes" allowed, we attribute our behaviors to our DNA and generational sin, what does it look like to act upon the invitation of Jesus to love even our enemies.
On this episode we sat down with Christine Nolf, a Pastor from @redemptionoc here in Costa Mesa. She will share a little of her story growing up in Costa Mesa and going to @estancia.asb in... was it 1994?
Estancia Highschool is a place of connection, of diversity.
Why is conflict probably one of the ways to actually come together?

We told some students at Estancia Highschool in Costa Mesa to ask God a question, one of those questions was how can I help a friend with substance abuse?
