Detroit Street Ministry

Detroit Street Ministry

One of the areas we are thinking about doing ministry is Highland Park. It is right in the center of Detroit and is in desperate need of street level activity for Jesus. Please pray with us as we discern if this is the place God wants us to begin working....

Praying in Brokenness

Praying in Brokenness

Walking through Detroit the other day, I realized how deeply broken the city is. There are abandoned houses everywhere. There are abandoned businesses everywhere. There are abandoned churches everywhere. There are actually entire blocks that are completely abandoned. Actually, brokenness seems to be a characteristic of many inner cities. But it got me thinking about...
Identifying Sprouts

Identifying Sprouts

I just had a birthday. This year Father’s Day and my birthday were just two days apart. I’m not big into either day. Some people are. I’m not. I usually don’t get many gifts for either day because I don’t get excited about them. At the most I get a card in the mail from...
Mysterious Sustenance

Mysterious Sustenance

Last week I was reminded of something again that I hope will encourage you in a real way. A young lady from the neighborhood named Latonya committed her life to the Lord a few weeks ago. We’ve known her for about three years and we’ve known her boyfriend for about two. He is a hustler from...
A Secret Tool

A Secret Tool

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. – Isaiah 55:8 Our ideas about ministry and God’s ideas for ministry sometimes don’t match up. Often times we get a certain direction from the Lord and move forward with zeal, never realizing that we’re doing it in our...
A Convicting Question

A Convicting Question

I got to see a friend recently who has been struggling with drugs. He has had many different encounters with the Lord and I believe he truly loves Jesus. His conversation always turns to his love of  the Lord and his desire to serve the Lord with us in the streets. But he struggles with...
Inspiration

I spent the last few days with our Vanguard Street Ministry Miami leaders. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and fun as I got to meet many of the people they are reaching through their work there. But each time I go to Miami I make a point go through the art district to...
Fighting the Good Fight

Fighting the Good Fight

“This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” – 1 John 5:4 The power of the devil has been exaggerated. Although we don’t believe he is powerless, if the devil was as powerful as he has said he is, you’d already be dead. I would be dead too, along with a...

Spring Season!

French Kiss

French Kiss

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13 We have seen the truth in this scripture in some of the “hardest” cases. It’s one of the things the Church needs to meditate on and cry out to the Lord for revelation about. We...
Believer's Responsibility

Believer’s Responsibility

In the streets theft is a regular occurrence. Recently, in one of the cities we work in, many of the drug dealers were getting robbed. Someone was going around and pistol-whipping them and taking their drugs and their cash. It had all of them really scared. This continued until those who were doing the robbing...

“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself: it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.” - John 15:4 During seasons of peace when the people of God are faithfully and joyfully serving Him, there are hundreds maybe thousands...
