Prochorus - a passion to serve our community

About Prochorus

One of the seven chosen to serve in the early church according to Acts 6:5 and responsible for the daily distribution of food to widows and the needy. We take our inspiration from this passage.

The seven pillars of the logo represent the seven who were chosen for this responsibility.

The shape of the pillars represents a city or community, namely our home of Bakersfield, CA.

Our passion is to serve the communities of Bakersfield and Kern County in order to help make our home a thriving place to live and a light in California. We believe that all hard work yields a profit, not just financially but manifested instead via stronger relationships, new ideas and ventures, and projects that help transform community.
