Here’s a new solution to the church building problem—meet under an interstate bridge. I don’t know this church or its pastor personally, but a friend of mine mentioned it to me because she knows I’m always interested in unique approaches to doing church.
This church started out as a Bible study and ministry to the homeless people who slept under a particular bridge, and it grew to become a church focused on serving the poor and communicating the message of Jesus. Their mission statement says, “May we come together, black, white, brown, rich and poor, educated in the streets and in the university, all worshipping the living God, who makes us one.”
You can watch a news story about this church on youtube or visit their website. I’m always amazed how much we can learn by looking at all of the creative ways others have found to do ministry in the name of Jesus.
