Recently, the Street Pastors ministry was relaunched at the Webster Memorial United Church on Half-Way Tree Road, in a worship service filled with six greetings plus remarks by Peter ‘Divine Intervention’ Bunting, minister of national security, and the guest speaker, Bishop Les Isaac, chairman and founder of Ascension Trust, United Kingdom.
The primary aim of Street Pastors is not to verbally preach the gospel, though they will always be ready to share their Christian faith if invited to do so. Instead, Street Pastors are committed to the service of others in the name of Jesus. Their main way of spreading the gospel is to engage in a ministry of listening to persons who are troubled and then offer practical help on a non-judgemental basis to anyone and everyone who is on the streets.
There are now 11,000 Street Pastors volunteering worldwide….
