Through this ministry we distribute food and nourishment, personal health care necessities, warm clothing and coats to the homeless and less fortunate in the Portland metro area.
The bible teaches that we must tithe our first fruit to the Lord (2 Chronicles 31:6-5). The members of NDCC not only tithe our finances, but we tithe food, clothing, and our time. Every Saturday we distribute the “tithed” clothing and personal necessities collected along with hot coffee, breakfast pastries, juice, homemade hot soup and sack lunches to the homeless who are living on the streets of Portland. We call it “Feeding Jesus.”
After distributing the natural needs and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, we extend an invitation to fellowship with us during our Sunday morning worship service. Our van ministry provides transportation to New Direction Community Church, where the homeless and less fortunate can worship in a non-judgmental environment, allowing them to establish relationships with other believers and provide an opportunity for a life changing experience of accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
