The Good Shepherd Ministry Center is located in central El Cajon. Formerly a United Methodist Church, Foothills runs the center as a source for aid to those in need in our community. The site has Sunday morning services, an on-site ​director through the week, classes and programs for adult education ​as well as the food pantry and clothing center.

Volunteers are aways needed to help run these amazing programs and to keep the site maintained.
