Not only do the homeless require their basic physical needs met, but many need help to escape dependencies on alcohol and drugs, and more importantly, lack a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Feed the Need Ministry’s primary focus is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who don’t know Him, and to help disciple those that do, while at the same time meeting their basic physical needs.
From volunteers simply listening one-on-one, to pastoral counseling, to finding appropriate rehabilitative services, an attempt is made to assist each homeless person who is willing to accept it.
As a pastor once said – the best counseling comes from the one true Counselor, and a personal relationship with Him. Our ultimate goal is have each homeless person have that relationship.
