My wife, Victoria, and I felt a tug in our hearts to help people who are in need. On May 25, 2014, we began packing a few sandwiches, sodas and water and handed them out to different folks while we prayed for them. We approached "homeless folks", "sign holders" and those who seemed to be in need.
As time went on, friends would join us in passing out food and praying for people. Though we have friends that attend different churches, we all share one common interest – THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
We would all come together in as many as 20 people, walking down neighborhoods filled with folks drinking alcohol, doing drugs, prostitution, and living homeless. Jesus himself went out to the the highways and byways to help the lost and those in need showing love, mercy, and compassion. That’s what we do! No one is beyond the hand of God.
We have come a long way since then. Today we are men, women, teenagers and young people who love Jesus Christ. We have seen His life changing power working in each of our lives. We come from different parts and pathways of life; state workers, truck drivers, pastors, students, stay-at-home moms and dads, business owners, etc. We come together under one single umbrella from different churches, community groups and other organizations to help, encourage, feed and bring hope to people who are in need by letting them know about the LIFE CHANGING POWER OF JESUS CHRIST!
Our Mission Statement
Takin’ it to the Streetz is a Christian based ministry called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an evangelistic way.
We believe in bringing the word of God to the Streets by outreaches in parks, populated areas and/or where we feel there is a need.
We also believe that it is our job as Christians to talks with the folks and see where they are regarding salvation, pray for them and lead them to the Lord as it is written in Romans 10:9-10
We believe the only way to get to heaven is by accepting Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior.
We believe the Bible to be God’s perfect and flawless word.
We believe the Bible has the answer to every problem, situation and circumstance in today’s society.
We believe in the Trinity, (the God Head) God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, each working independently yet, making up the one and true living God.
We believe ALL mankind is in need of a Savior, that ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. (it does not matter who you are, where you come from, how much money you have or don’t have, what your ethnicity is.)
Takin’ it to the Streetz is not a Church, (we are a street ministry) we help to "Build" the Church.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is fully funded by organizations, churches and other folks that share our values and concerns for the salvation of souls.
We "Partner Up" with other organizations and Churches that share our vision and passion for the lost and hurting folks of this day and age.
All of our outreaches are not always on a "Large" scale, sometime a "Small" scale…also depends on the weather and time of year.
We have a very unique approach to evangelizing and bringing the word of God to folks. We compel them to come to our events by:
• Serving a large variety of B.B.Q. food, non B.B.Q. food and all the trimmings
• Serving coffee and pastries and/or donuts
• Serving all you can eat ice-cream
• Providing entertainment such as
1. Our Christian Choir
2. Christian Hip-Hop rappers
3. Christian country singers
4. Christian poem recitals
5. Preaching words of encouragement
6. Giving our testimonies
• Daisy Bee the Clown, when available (she twists balloons for the children)
• Jump house for the children
There are many other types of entertainment and games for all, depending on what Churches or other organizations bring to our events.
My wife and I have a heart for people. We love what we do!
If you, your friends or family , or your organization would like to "partner up" with us, please let us know. We love working with other ministries and sharing the LOVE OF JESUS!
