History of “Jesus Loves Kzoo”
In 2008, “Jesus Loves Kzoo” started out as a small Vanguard Street Ministry outreach event to the north side of Kalamazoo with student volunteers from two local churches. The goal to get more churches involved with community outreach has always been at the heart of Vanguard Street Ministry. As a result, in the past five years, “Jesus Loves Kzoo” has grown to become not only an event but a “movement” that has unified the Body of Christ to share the love of Jesus throughout the Kalamazoo area. Up to this point, thousands of lives have been impacted, and in 2015, over fifty churches and ministries were represented among the hundreds of volunteers!
- Build Unity among Christ-following churches and ministries in the greater Kalamazoo area
- Build God’s Kingdom through acts of love & compassion done together as “The Church” in the name of Jesus Christ
- Engage “The Church” in year-round street ministry and community outreach efforts
- Connect those individuals reached through the ministry to discipleship opportunities
Who can get involved?
