We are passionate about you thriving in the ministry God has called you to as you are led by the Holy Spirit. If you decide that a Green Pastures’ partnership is for you we will equip you to care for the homeless in your area and give them opportunities to enter into an active relationship with Jesus. We are here to serve you, encourage you and give you the confidence to run fantastic supported housing. Our prayer is that as the body of Christ we can end homelessness in the UK and see hundreds of thousands of residents following Jesus.
Jesus said “I was in prison and you visited me, I was homeless and you housed me”. Paul was “eager to help the poor”. John
reminded us that “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” Proverbs says “He who wins souls is wise” and we want to see all our residents have the opportunity to come into relationship with Jesus and be supported in that relationship. As Billy Graham says: “The decision is 5%, following up the decision is 95%.” We provide the paperwork, expertise & support that will enable you to provide high quality supported housing.
We want to partner with local churches and Christian charities to end homelessness in your area.
