Welcome to Knowing Me Ministries Website!!


We would like to thank you for checking us out!!  We are a husband and wife team that work with the homeless.  We have been working with the homeless for 26 years.  8 years ago we started "Knowing Me Ministries" together and have been working at this full-time. This  ministry has various parts to it:

 

1)  The street ministry 

2)  The property where we will shelter and care for people in need

3)  Teaching and training groups for reaching the homeless and understanding their true needs

4)  Giving advise 

 

We are excited about this ministry.  We both have gifts and they work hand in hand to be one ministry.  God gave both of us a heart for helping people and we are excited to see how He works through us.  

So, please take a few minutes and check us out.  We have information on both parts of the ministry down below and then more details on other pages.

"A Place of Peace"

 

Angela has had a vision for several years now for a piece of property with several houses on it so we can help struggling families out there along with children who need taken care of while mom/dad are getting the help they need. We as a family were homeless for a year and half and know first hand what that is like.  Day to day is pure chaos and there isn't true rest.  Angela wants to provide a place of peace for families who need a helping hand.  It will not be a "cookie cutter" like any other organization.  PLEASE take a few minutes to read the vision for this property and then how you might help.
