Anita’s  Food Pantry is named after Pastor Alex Lara’s mother, Anita.   Despite Anita being a single mom, and not receiving any type of financial or moral support from Alex’s father,  she lived to help others and encouraged her son to do the same. In fact, not even a terminal disease could stop her from helping others.

One of the most impactful memory Pastor Alex has of Anita before she passed, was seeing her on her death bed with a few days to live, calling distressed families from her cell phone.  She was asking them for a list of needed school supplies and then bought their supplies for them. It is from this “whatever it takes” attitude and selfless actions that her son continues to carry the torch to help and empower others.

Anita’s Food Pantry’s mission is Fighting Hunger, One Family At A Time!

L.I.F.T. Leadership Classes

Leaders should be life long learners. Here at Elevate we value continuing education. For this reason, our leadership training is offered once a month. You don’t need a have a title or be leading a ministry. You just need a teachable spirit. The prerequisite to attend our L.I.F.T. leadership classes is E-training 201 (basic habits of every believer) and 301 (knowing your shape). Each session is by Pastor Alex.
