About Parker StreetSubtitle Text Goes Here
Nearly 20 years ago, a core group of Christians trusted in the God of the Bible who cares for the poor. They took that trust in God to a particular impoverished neighborhood and invited others to join them and to listen to the people who live there – to share their experiences – as their neighbors. It began in little ways, folding laundry together in laundry rooms, helping children get homework done, picking up trash together, praying for all kinds of neighbors… The big commitment was to individual, family, and community restoration, reconciliation, and revitalization.
We’ve grown a lot over two decades, and we continue with a vision for community development that is shaped by the Gospel. There are plans and goals and ways to measure progress. All of this happens through an abundance of prayer, people, facility, and financial resources. If you want to learn more about Parker Street Ministries’ story, start in the About section.
