As we have learned from Matthew 25:35 … For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me.
Serving the un-sheltered in your community is a strongly evangelical ministry that will serve God’s children, both as guest of the Small Shelter ministry and those who are fortunate enough to work within the Small Shelter ministry.
The idea of Small Shelters is to use existing buildings, property, resources to establish an overnight shelter for 2 to 20 people needing a safe place to rest their weary bodies. Living on the streets means the constant need for vigilance. Small Shelter ministries provide the simple grace of being able to unclench during an overnight stay and can go a long way to help people refocus their lives.
This book will help you determine what kind of Small Shelter ministry might be best for your church, provide a structure for how to establish a Small Shelter ministry and a framework for how to run your Small Shelter ministry.
