St. Andrew Missionary Baptist Church Private School Parent Coop Prayer Clinic, organized by Rev. Robert  Lacy and the Board of Directors in 1975, is a church that serves the community.
The church regularly offers services to the community including a food distribution program, clothes giveaway, a school-to-work program that grants a high school diploma, work opportunities and assisted living in apartments.
The church responds to the needs of those who have educational deficiencies; high school dropouts; and students who need GEDs. The church also helps those who face economic  hardships, families that have lost loved ones and the large numbers of students who have not completed college or university education.
To better serve the community, the church’s students and staff have decided to build a medical research laboratory, law library and a 24- hour daycare center. These projects will also serve those who are completing community service.  
The St. Andrew Church family is seeking architects or structural engineers who are willing to help on the project.
Rev. Lacy was baptized into the Baptist faith at the age of 11.  His experience, work, and service include 68 years of church work and community activity. He is an Ordained Deacon, Sunday school teacher, President of the Brotherhood and minister.
He is presently organizer and pastor of the St. Andrew Missionary Baptist Church Private School Parent Coop Prayer Clinic.
“My ultimate desire is to remain steadfast in service,” said Rev. Lacy, who turned 80 in November.
Members of the public who visit the church and its services ”will experience a joyful, spirit filled presence that you will long remember,” he said.
The church accepts and needs donations and other contributions for services that it offers.
St. Andrew Missionary is located at 2608 West St., Oakland. For information call 510-465-8023 or toll free 866-990-9987 or email
