All About Feed My Sheeps

Outreach is the extension of Gods hands through the outward expression of love by people who help those that are in need, through acts of kindness.  Outreach is loving your neighbor as you love yourself, Mark 12:31 showing the nature of God through feeding the homeless, clothing the poor, helping the widows and orphans. Outreach is having the commitment to impact and make a difference in your community, and in the lives of others through enrichment programs, such as mentorship, and professional development. Outreach is taking an active role and becoming involved in community awareness one person at a time which creates a ripple effect impacting the neighborhood, and county, gaining momentum through the collective commitment, and consistency of people coming together with one purpose to help someone in need.  What started out as a ripple has developed into a wave that is powerful, forward moving, impactful and reaching out through out the world.

Biblical Foundation:

Matthew 25: 34 – 36; 40

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

 

What Special About Us

Becoming part of the family of Feed My Sheep Ministries, Inc. we make sure that there is no man, woman, or child that is in need of our services, prayers, or/and help is left unattended. We have a high amount of those we serve and try to do as much as we can to supply their needs at the moment. We grantee to stick with those in need, even if we have helped them with all their problems. Those that lack self-esteem, interview techniques, resume training, employment issues, and finance management will have personal access to any resource that we have to help them out of the situation and to also build up their faith in God and themselves for the rest of their life. We treat our people more than just a hand in need of help, but a family that builds relationships with God and members with no limitations! We teach our people to become overcomers and victors!
 

Vision

Our vision in Feed My Sheep Ministries, Inc. is to feed the homeless, quench the thirst of the thirsty (spiritually or/and naturally), to provide shelter, to clothe the naked, to teach literacy, and provide for families all over the world! To show that we can do more beyond the lines of our country, but to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world!
 

Feed My Sheep is a vibrant and active outreach ministry that provides nutritious hot meals for the homeless. Volunteers in this active ministry "live" Christ's love through their ministry to and for the "least of His brethren" among us.

Guiding Principles:

Love: Jesus told His disciples “Love one another as I have loved you.” Volunteers in this ministry selflessly devote time to providing for the “poorest of the poor”, freely accepting Christ’s offer of salvation by “feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, healing the sick, sheltering the homeless” and loving those who often know no love but yours
 
I: Much of our lives are directed toward satisfying in every possible way what “I” want out of life. Jesus asks us to be “meek and humble of heart”, as he is meek and humble, minimizing what “I” do for myself and expanding the breadth of what we do for others. Volunteers in this ministry come to know in very real terms the peace that comes through a ministry that practices true faith in Jesus through Saint Paul’s words, “it is more blessed to give than to receive.” 
 
Faith: There is no greater way to understand the core of Jesus’ command to love than to serve on a regular basis those who have been rejected by society. Volunteers who care for the “least of Christ’s brethren” grow rich in faith and humility by embracing those who have nothing to “give back” but their thanks, a warm smile, and sincere wishes for God’s blessings
 
Example: If we were on trial for being a true follower of Christ, would there be enough evidence to convict us? If we can preach the Gospel but cannot live it, are we a true follower of Christ? Volunteers in this active ministry “live” Christ’s love through their ministry to and for the “least of His brethren among us.” 
 

Feed My Sheep Workshops: The Changing Face of Parishes

Today's Catholic parishes are both the same as and not the same as our parents' parishes. There are rapidly and constantly changing demographics, new ministries and ministers, new funding models, to name just a few differences. The relationship between the ordained and lay leaderships has been clarified by the Church. This interactive session explores the nature of what has remained consistent over time, what has changed and the challenges arising from both. It offers insight into parish life of the future and how to create the most effective, best practice parishes in the light of the changing face of parishes. It offers tools for parish leadership to use for insight over time and tools to help the parish adapt to internal and external change.
