Taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the homeless camps of Colorado
“And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” – Luke 14:23
Our ministry focus is simple: fulfill the command of Jesus and visit homeless camps around Denver metro area to preach the life changing gospel message. We introduce ourselves, we get to know them, we give them a copy of Jesus Commandments, we read them relevant bible verses that pertain to their personal situations, we give them water, we feed them, we give them new pairs of socks, we hug them, we pray with them, and we tell them that their souls are more precious than all the gold and silver on planet earth.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” – John 10:11-12
Jesus gave all of us a great commission to go and preach the gospel to all creatures and baptize and make disciples but, he also gave a very serious warning to his servants about taking care of the poor, hungry, and homeless living among us:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. – Matthew 25:31-46
As Jesus plainly teaches, we are commanded to minister to the physical needs of our homeless neighbors (or else face everlasting punishment). While this is a very serious warning Jesus also promises a great reward for those faithful servants of who heed this scriptural commandment!
Can I come along?
YES! We believe every Sunday is the Lord’s Day therefore we set aside Sunday mornings for worship at our various personal churches and we set aside and come together Sunday afternoons for this ministry.
Please contact Dutch if you would like to coordinate and schedule a Sunday afternoon ministry outreach from your church. As always, please pray for more workers for the harvest.
What denomination is this ministry?
This ministry is christian but non-denominational. We use the King James Version Holy Bible simply because it is the most accepted and well known of all bible translations but, feel free to bring whatever version Bible you prefer. We welcome all christian volunteers.
This ministry seeks to stand up and be a friend, advocate, and shepherd to the precious lost sheep homeless souls of the Denver Metro Area and bring glory to Jesus. This ministry is 100% about Jesus and doing the work of Jesus – with that in mind we are focused on love and christian unity regardless of what denomination volunteers hail from.
We encourage each volunteer to personally invite the homeless people they meet during this ministry work to their own personal churches!
