Street Ministry

Street Ministry is happening year-round!

** Please Note: Jesus Loves Kzoo does not sponsor year round street ministry teams on our own and the teams listed below operate independently from JLK. However, we believe we are led to play a “connecting” role and will do everything we can to encourage the Body of Christ to step out and serve with these front-line ministries!

** Please always contact leaders to confirm times and locations before showing up!

Winter is Chili Time!

Most Street Ministry teams are giving out chili, hot chocolate and warm clothing in the winter months. 

Here are some of the ways you can help…

— Volunteer with one of the experienced teams listed below…

— Make gallons of chili — and freeze it…

— Donate bowls, cups/lids, spoons, crackers, bulk hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, granola bars, cookies or warm clothing…

** Contact us today and we can connect you to the front-line teams!**
