Here is a little it about their mission of Purpose and Promise Ministry!
Sowing Seeds For His Glory!
Purpose and Promise Ministry is an evangelistic ministry that bridges the gap between jail, the streets and the church. This ministry was founded and is now directed by local missionary Jessica Simmons. The mission of this ministry is to offer life skills and life training through Jesus Christ and the Bible. Purpose and Promise Ministry desires that the effect of their mission will usher in hope and a future through Christ for those that participate in the services offered through the ministry. The mission's primary goal is assisting with transition.
The different people this ministry reaches is vast. Purpose and Promise works in partnership with many local churches, churches internationally, local law enforcement, civic groups and local DHR to reach an "undesired" or "much required" portion of our community. The ministry services individuals that are in incarceration or coming out of incarceration and services also extend to individuals in extreme poverty, homelessness, and veterans.
As of the beginning of 2020, Purpose and Promise Ministry has been an established 501c3 non-profit corporation for almost 3 years. In those 3 years, this ministry has seen people come know Jesus. This ministry has been involved with helping people find jobs, housing, families, church, rehabs or recovery programs, direction, guidance, and purpose through the work of Jesus Christ. Purpose and Promise Ministry has been the conduit to assist in these transitions.
This ministry is more than just helping a targeted group of the population. This Ministry is about helping everyone involved or connected to it find their purpose and how they can be useful and intentional within their community.
At current, Purpose and Promise Ministry is open 3 days a week from 11am-3pm. During this time, they offer Bible Study, life skills, fellowship and hygiene. A lunch meal is offered to those who participate in classes and limited food assistance is provided. Plans are underway to offer a 12 step recovery plan weekly, along with a licensed counselor and anger management classes.
The goal moving forward for Purpose and Promise Ministry is to offer temporary residence for those transitioning into work, recovery programs or family living!
