The Environment
The outreach is in an inner city mission field ministry. We bring "church" to the people who have no church. The downtown area is populated with many homeless, poor and needy men, women and children. As with any missionary type ministry, servants will come face to face with some harsh realities of real life. For the most part the congregation is peaceful and very thankful for all that God is doing at the outreach. However, servants will occasionally be exposed to vulgar language, unsanitary individuals, erratic and unreasonable behavior, and occasional outbursts of hostility. Servants need to have a heart of compassion, under- standing and forgiveness. Remain in an attitude of prayer and be prepared to watch God work through the most unusual circumstances.

Children & Youth
We do not have child care facilities. We do not recommend bringing infants or small children. Any children attending will need to be constantly attended to by parents or responsible guardians, thus removing the parent or guardian from other service needs. Youth are encouraged to serve if they are able to take direction and are willing to follow careful instruction.

Dress
Sensible shoes and conservative, functional clothing are suggested. Women should refrain from wearing short shorts and/or short skirts and halter tops, but concentrate on modest, functional clothing.

Food & Drink
We suggest that you partake of adequate sustenance before you arrive at the Outreach location. The work can be exhausting so you will need plenty of energy. The atmosphere is intended to be like a big church picnic so please stay away from terms like "feeding the poor" or “homeless feeding”. We want the servants and the congregation to break bread together, but be sensitive to the needs of those who are there to serve.
