I got a chance to see forty plus people to take the love of God to the streets, and serve the homeless population in downtown Atlanta. How cool is that? I’ll answer–very cool. We were able to clock over 80 volunteer hours of service (loving on people).
I’ve been asked, “Why are you approaching ministry and non-profit work this way?” My answer is simple. Because I have a different scorecard.
I don’t measure dollars, budgets, or people in seats, I measure mobilization, contact work, and feet on the ground (doing the actual work).
Why feet on the ground? Take a quick look at a community we served yesterday, and a picture of a new friend I met named Robert (That’s why).[embedplusvideo height=”500″ width=”500″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1cnepPa” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/O_RCPigIemk?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=O_RCPigIemk&width=500&height=500&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep2487″ /]

Below is a picture of all the people who banded together to serve yesterday…
