The Upper Room is an event driven Christian venue located in Mission Viejo, California. We are a donor-based, independent ministry, which began in 2009. The name comes from the Biblical reference found in the book of Acts, where Jesus' disciples gathered after His resurrection. The name also has a whimsical twist of irony in that our original venue was located on the 2nd floor of a building in Irvine, California
We hold events on a once-per-month basis and invite musical artist comedians and speakers of note from the Christian community to come and share talents and giftedness. Our events are held in a 'coffeehouse' type setting. We are not a church, nor are we affiliated with any church or ministry organization. We are in no way attempting to provide an alternative to church attendance. In fact, it is our desire to be a support to the local church bodies in providing additional outreach.
Our purpose is to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ with a desire to provide a place for Christians and non-Christians alike to come and be spiritually uplifted and encouraged through entertainment. It is equally our desire to provide an environment where the Gospel of Jesus Christ can be presented to those in need of salvation.
