Youth Rally 1999
Youth reaching youth with our first yellow and white tent.
Going into the hood to do some good!
We would dare go into some of the roughest parts of the city and proclaim the gospel of Christ. In 1999.
We have pointed people to Christ as their answer.
As people look for answers in all the wrong places, with a sure word from God's Word we point them to Christ. Not only through our sound system but our banners exalt only the Lord Jesus Christ and not other human beings.
Women ministers around the altar
God has used various methods and ways to reach the community. Men on men, women on women, children on children. As well as individuals preaching and teaching the Word of God as a whole!

We have always tried to network with other ministers or churches because of the vast amount of work that needs to be done.

It will take team work to truely be effective.
A Coalition of local churches of like faith and burdens is the only way to reach the neighborhoods in the most cost effective way.
Dress down for services outside
It takes a church that want to reach souls to come out of the building on the streets where the people are.
Come as you are has been the way to say you are welcome.
Everybody dresses down for the occasion and the mission is souls, souls, souls!
Praise and worship sets the tone for the outside services
Inviting the presence of God into the atmosphere can truely make the differece.

Out side in the streets reaching out to the unchurched
Other Christians join in the service to help reach those who may have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the streets of the USA!
Thank God for those that help us to spread the Gospel.
For those that make the services a success thank you, we couldn't do it with out everybody doing their part.

Blue and White or Yellow and White
One day soon we will!
Vision of our future Ten
It will happen one day.
At one point we were promised a bigger and better tent as some well to do people said "the Lord told them to buy it for us" we simply used the yellow and white one until it wasn't fit to take around the city any longer for safety reasons. Later they changed their minds and we continued as we raised $1000.00 to purchase our next used old worn out blue and white tent until God provides a new one. However, we understand because a brand new tent with curtains would cost $5000.00. We believe God will provide our bigger tent in the near future!
We will keep being faithful for soul winning with what we have until we can do better.
