What is Matthew 25 Ministries?
The following letter from Ted Rodarm, our Executive Director, will help you understand what Matthew 25 Ministries is all about. Here's his letter.
"I received a phone call from a homeless man who sought our help. He lives on the streets only because of the strict residency restrictions he faces as an ex-offender. He wants to work but is overwhelmed by his homelessness. We'll explore all options with him He will be welcomed and accepted at Matthew 25 Ministries.
This is all too typical. We get these calls on a daily basis. I can't help but wonder what would happen to him if we weren't able to help. He needs an opportunity to rebuild his life.
As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, I think back to the hundreds of men helped by Matthew 25 Ministries. Once again, I wonder where they would be today had they not had the opportunity to have a fresh start with a safe place to live and, most importantly, a church that welcomed them and shared the love of Christ unconditionally."
This is what Matthew 25 Ministries is all about.
To provide a compassionate recovery community for ex-offenders who are willing to take responsibility for themselves and learn to make viable choices while striving for success.
34 Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. 36 I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’
40 “The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
