Located in one of the most economically deprived regions of the country, the center, led by Steffan and Leslie Carr, is a church and community center, providing essential services to the area.
The BOC is a thriving ministry having a tremendous impact on the lives in their own community as well as surrounding ones. Ministries include providing food for 1,000+ people every month, clothing distribution, basketball, recreation, a GED program, a homeschool ministry, an after school ministry for children with learning disabilities, and a Celebrate Recovery ministry for folks with various addictions, hurts, etc.
Gayton has partnered with the Bruce Outreach Center since 2011 when the first family mission trip worked alongside Christ Memorial to establish ministries to the local community in their newly acquired outreach space. Since then, Gayton has maintained a partnership with the Bruce Outreach Center through family and high school mission trips. Gayton provided financial support to the directors, Steffan and Leslie Carr, through the Ministry Grant portion of the Explore mission offering.
