Fontana pastors take crime-prevention cue from San Bernardino Pastors United

Local clergy leaders are expected to meet in February!

A couple of months back, Kelvin Moore, associate pastor at Loveland Church in Fontana, attended a block party in San Bernardino organized by a group of pastors there united in their mission to combat crime.

They need to come to our church, Moore said he thought at the time.

On Friday, Jan. 4, San Bernardino Pastors United did. “My prayers were answered,” Moore said. At a meeting hosted by Loveland Church, pastors with the San Bernardino clergy group asked their counterparts in neighboring Fontana if they cared to start a similar organization in the new year.

The host pastors and community members showed unanimous support.

“There’s a need for this in every city,” Moore said. “People won’t go to church, so we want the church to go out to them.”

Led by Pastor Reginald Young, crisis chair for San Bernardino Pastors United, the 90-minute meeting touched on the group’s history, procedures and protocols, mission – “Healing. Change. Progress.” – and three-pronged organizational structure.

With the ever-present threat of crime in a city of 212,000, Young said, “pastors in Fontana have to embrace a united front.”
