IMPACTING OUR NEIGHBORHOODS FOR JESUS

BNC MINISTRIES

BNC Ministries serve as conduits for the expression of love, compassion, and service that are foundational in Jesus’ teachings. Our goal is to translate the heart of Jesus into tangible actions, making a lasting impact on individual lives, our local commuinities, and globally. BNC ministries bridge the gap between faith and action.

CARS OF HOPE

Stan Gozzi & Brent Aasen

This ministry started with a conversation between a representative of Shepherd's Gate in Brentwood and Brent Assen from BNC. Shepherd's Gate is a safe haven for abused women and their children. Also, a rehabilitation center for those suffering with drug addiction. Shepherd's Gate was in need of a car for a graduate of their program, and they knew Brent was a car guy at heart. Brent was knowledgeable at detailing and minor repairs like brakes and tune-ups, but he was looking for someone who had the resources for more involved mechanical repairs. He contacted Stan Gozzi, who has over 40 years in the automotive industry and is an automotive instructor at Los Medanos Community College. Stan agreed to perform the mechanical repairs on the first car then Brent detailed the interior and exterior. The graduate had just landed a good job but had no reliable transportation. She was overwhelmed when she found out that a reliable vehicle was being donated for her use. That was in January 2023. As of February 2024, Brent and Stan have overhauled, safety checked, and detailed eight vehicles they purchased or had donated, primarily for Shepherd's Gate. Several women from Shepards Gate have said getting a reliable vehicle was life changing.

Stan and Brent continue to look for inexpensive or donated vehicles in generally good condition that need minor cosmetic and mechanical repairs. Or you can contribute to Cars of Hope in the giving section of the BNC website to offset some of the expense of purchasing and reconditioning the vehicles. If you know someone that is in need of a reliable vehicle or know of a vehicle in good condition that might meet the criteria, please contact Stan cell at 925-918-0532 or email info@bnc.church
