Our Mandate

Matthew 25:34-40 (New International Version)

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?

38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in or needing clothes and clothe you?

39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Freshwave is a long term ministry with a focus on friendship evangelism and establishing trust relationships. Many of the people we serve are imprisoned by addictions, mental illness, and various forms of abuse. We meet them in their prisons!

The Gospel is demonstrated and Christ’s love is shared as we meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through friendship, meals, groceries, clothing, and prayer. Being committed to our street family, we encourage and care for them as we serve the Lord.
