We are called to share the Good News with those experiencing homelessness. We encourage those we serve to seek an authentic relationship with God and to live by His standard.
They are deeply devoted to God and each other. They know the lies and deceptions of the enemy first hand. They give God all the credit for changing their direction, restoring their marriage, and aligning their hearts’ with His.
Our prayer is God will soon expand our reach to bring us into relationship with an even greater number of people experiencing homelessness throughout Tallahassee, the Big Bend, and the Panhandle.
He proved it through the willing sacrifice of His son, Jesus. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, God made the greatest gift ever available to all of us; the gift of salvation. We enthusiastically accepted this amazing gift and celebrate God daily. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors haven’t heard of God’s gift or have forgotten its power.
We are Connections Church. Many of us are homeless or have experienced homelessness. Before we knew God were lost, some by making poor choices; drugs, alcohol, crime, lust, pride, anger, and lies. Others were buried in the brokenness around us; poverty, mental illness, learning disabilities, prejudice, child abuse, divorce and Godlessness.
God found us in the deepest darkest pits of despair imaginable and adopted us. When we accepted His gift of salvation He transformed us; we are no longer the people we were. As God’s sons and daughters He asks us to share the news of his amazing gift with our community. We are still works in progress, but we strive to improve and accomplish our job.
The coolest part of our job is God sends us to places others fear to go. We are always careful to bring Him along for protection, but the rewards have been incredible and many have accepted God’s gift.
There is a seat at the table for you.
Come, join the family
Our personal and church resources are modest but growing. Our prayer is God will soon expand our reach to bring us into relationship with an even greater number of people experiencing homelessness throughout Tallahassee, the Big Bend, and the Panhandle. In addition, we feel led to reach the large numbers impoverished and disenfranchised families in these communities. Please partner with us, so none shall perish.
Jeff was crafted into a minister through his willingness to serve the homeless community of Tallahassee for the past ten years. He celebrates daily God’s willingness to transform a rusty life nearly forfeited to a precision instrument calibrated to His will.
Deniz, often thinks of herself of a lost coin God recovered. As a daughter of Turkish Immigrants she missed out on God’s invitation as a child. Living in the dark for thirty years gives her greater appreciation for the Light of God.
