The All Peoples Story

Have you ever wanted to impact the world? This was the desire that brought the group of friends together that founded All Peoples Church.

A Dream is Born

Original Church Planting Team
After almost ten years of leading a flourishing college group, Robert and Stefanie Herber felt God speak to their hearts to launch a multi-ethnic church in the heart of San Diego. They shared the dream with some close friends who all sensed God leading them to uproot and move to the San Diego. They took a risk knowing that God would do an amazing thing.

Church Launch

New House Church
In January 2008, the first lifegroup was launched in the Herber home just one block away from San Diego State Campus. From the first day, God brought together an ethnically diverse group. This early Lifegroup started with mostly college students, but soon people from the inner city (gang members, the homeless, skaters, and others) began to jump in as well.

First Sunday Services

All Peoples Church Service at Horace Mann
After 5 months, this first group outgrew meeting in a home and the leaders of All Peoples felt led to launch a public worship service.
This growing community was graciously welcomed by the administration of Horace Mann Middle School and had its first public gathering on June 22, 2008.


Establishing a church and preaching the gospel
To facilitate what God was doing in San Diego, new ministries were launched to meet different needs in the church. Multiple services were launched for college and youth.

Growth & Impact

Church growth and Mexico missions trip
By God’s grace, All Peoples has grown since its inception to a moderately sized church with multiple services and impact in multiple nations. 2015 was a significant year for All Peoples Church. As God called us to stretch ourselves to bless more people with the message of the Gospel, He brought growth to our movement.
