Jesus didn't die so we could have a religion.

Unique Ministry that Shouldn't Be Unique

I am at a Leadership Conference in Phoenix, AZ at Phoenix First Assembly. So far it has been really good. Has anyone heard of the Dream Center? I went to a break out session with the leader of that organization. It is a ministry in downtown LA that reaches out to homeless kids, prostitutes, drug abusers, the very poor and needy. The testimonies from the people who have been touched by the ministry are really cool.

The leader of the ministry said that they are just exactly what the world is not. They are tender, loving and caring. It is a church that is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. They are consistent in ministring to their neighborhoods and really go after the people that Jesus was talking about without compromising truth or honesty.

I was really blessed to get a little peek at this ministry. I would write more, but it is the middle of the day in classes.

Hi Amber,
yes I've heard of it. A lady I know here, who is involved with the Street Outreach ministry I'm part of, went there.
She said it was good. We have a ministry here where we go out to the homeless and into the redlight district - she went over to the Dream Centre to get some more ideas.

Hey Amber -- Isn't the Church of Jesus awesome when it imitates him? Soak up all you can.
