There are many different ministries in our area, our goal is to not do the same thing as everyone else but, to come alongside those ministries and support or fill in the gaps. While we minister primarily with the arts, we listen to the needs of the community and our ministry reflects that. Because we are a small ministry, and we have a very supportive board of directors, we are able to be flexible. That flexibility makes us able to effectively make a difference in peoples lives. Sometimes it may be small like discipleship or bringing food to a rehab or giving a necessities bag to someone on the street. Other times it might be bigger like bringing the community together though performances or helping over 100 people be seen by visiting doctors or playing music for a crowd. We have found ourselves doing a lot more counseling the longer we are here. We have found ourselves doing so much that we are going to school online and have been certified as Christian Counselors and are currently working toward our diplomas. This has also come in very handy in our ministry with children that have been abandoned and often have major issues. Below is a list of some of the ministries that we support and that support us and some that we just love. Click on any of the pictures to go to their web sites.
Needs: There are many needs with the other ministry we do, in particular the necessity bags. We also have some books we listed that we use often in our counseling. We have added another button below for our needs list. If you feel lead to give to any of the other ministries listed out below let us know and we would happy to put you in contact with them!
Prayer: We appreciate prayer that those we meet with the gospel would be open to it and for safety as we go about our street ministry. We appreciate prayer for the people we minister to. Open hearts for those we counsel and good conversations ot those we meet on the streets. We want nothing more then to make much of the name of Christ Jesus so prayer as we go about our daily ministry is very much appreciated.
