Rancho Cucamonga: a Gateway?

13 02 2010

Over the last several days, I’ve had the opportunity to consider once again the needs and opportunities in Southern California as a whole. I’ve been preparing a powerpoint “tour” of Southern California to use at the Heritage Bible Church Church Planting Conference on Sunday, February 21. This is the first time that I have carefully considered the I-10 corridor that runs from Rancho Cucamonga to Los Angeles. It’s about 35 miles of freeway, running through about 15 cities with a population of well over a million people. Rancho acts as a “gateway” city from the Inland Empire into that corridor of church planting needs. Here are some of the cities along the route:

  • Upland 72,000
  • Montclair 36,000
  • Claremont 35,000
  • Pomona 150,000
  • Chino 83,000
  • La Verne 33,000
  • San Dimas 35,000
  • Diamond Bar 57,000
  • Walnut 30,000
  • Covina 47,000
  • West Covina 105,000
  • Baldwin Park 77,000
  • La Puente 40,000
  • El Monte 120,000
  • Rosemead 54,000
  • Alhambra 86,000
  • Monterey Park 61,000
