The heart of MISSION7 is walking like Jesus. (1 John 2:6) reaching the homeless, the lost and those in need, (Matthew 25:35-40) preaching the gospel and healing the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Giving them the hope that is in Christ Jesus our savior and making them aware of God’s free gift of grace (Ephesians 2:8).
The goal is giving our city Jesus and having the Holy Spirit completely transform our communities by the renewing of minds (Romans 12:2) resulting in a healthy lifestyle of sobriety, working, getting a place, etc. Our aim is to eventually do this by being on the streets full time to maximize opportunities to multiply good fruit for the Kingdom.
A typical week for MISSION7 consists of three outreaches from the streets, to the mall, to homeless shelters, Thursday-Sunday. We target three specific areas when ministering to the street people.
- We fill a basic need, e.g. Food, water, clothes, etc. James 2:14-17, Matthew 25:35-36.
- Give them the Word of God. Give The Word ministry from Winnipeg, Manitoba supplies us with bible magazines that are simplified and easy to read. We encourage them to be asking, knocking, seeking on their own Matthew 7:7,8, 2 Timothy 2:15.
- We encourage and hand out church invitations, letting them know they don’t have to do this on their own. Hebrews 10:24,25 and Galatians 6:2.
The MISSION7 name originated from continually walking by a pub called “The Mission” with a cross for a logo. The name was completed with the “7” when reading through the book of Revelation and learning that the number 7 represents completion and perfection. Shortly after praying for a confirmation, I walked by a gentleman on the street with the number 7 in the center of his t-shirt. The name MISSION7 was born!
