Nursing Home Outreach
Visits nursing homes on a monthly basis
We are currently involved with 3 nursing homes in the Kansas City area. Once a month, members of Heart of God Fellowship go and minister in song and bring a short message. The ministry is led by Dan T. The folks love to sing, especially the “old standards” of the church, and because in many cases there are no actual church services in these facilities, they eat up the Word. Most of all, there are the hugs. Lots of hugs. The nursing home minister takes care of the nursing home ministry. He’s always looking for people with a heart for the elderly to come along and sing, visit, or give out hugs. Our nursing home minister was raised in Independence but lived in Colorado Springs for a short time, as well as Brookfield, MO. He has also been privileged to be on the mission field ministering to the Native Americans of Southwest Arizona and California. He has been married for over 20 years, and they have 2 grown children and 1 grandson. His favorite verses are Romans 8:28, 38-39 and Phillipians 4:13.
Visits various motorcycle events around the KC area
There is a subculture of people living on the edge of society divided into several groups: one of the most recognizable groups is the biker community. Our motorcycle outreach ministry has a goal; to reach deep into that community and inject the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ into as many as can accept it. This can take long periods and personal investments of time and relationship on the part of our ministers in order to establish the trust and relationship it takes to reach these folks. Our ministers, through the direction and grace of God, go “the extra mile” in proving the unconditional love of Jesus to that community, as well as the street gangs and that part of the subculture. This ministry is “home missions” at it’s grittiest. Our guys and gals go into the prisons, rallies, streets, and one on one with whoever will listen and share the Gospel until it makes it’s way through the pain of this life. Each year we have a special time of reaching out specifically to bikers during a Sunday morning service. Biker Sunday is one of our most anticipated events of the year.
