Wednesday Night "Kingdom Builders" Ministry
In the name of Jesus, we strive to reach out to the homeless population of the KC metro area.
Darin is planning big things and praying big things for reaching out to the homeless this year.
Our goal is to purchase special coats for the homeless living on the streets of Kansas City. These coats convert into sleeping bags and are specially designed for cold winters. The company that makes the coats (EmpowermentPlan.org) employs and trains homeless in Detroit to construct the coats.
Each sleeping bag coat costs $100 to produce.
We want to make sure that all of our friends who are spending winter on the streets are as warm and safe as possible. Your donation will not only help guarantee their warmth, but may also help to save their lives!

“God had opened our eyes to the need; and through prayer, research, and lots of people willing to pitch in, to date we have collected 1000s of plastic bags and processed them into 20+ sleeping mats for the homeless! These have been passed out 1 by 1 to people sleeping in the streets of KCMO. These not only help us show Christ’s Love, they also aid in building relationships with people in need! Thank you to everyone who has helped with this! I can’t tell you what it means to me or the people I’ve had the honor to give them to!”
“The first round of coats arrived today!!! We have 13 coats for this round, and we will get the next 13 as soon as the rest of the donations come in. Thank you all so much!!!!! Keep spreading the word!”
The Road Mat Team has been busily churning out sleeping mats for over a year now, and Darin has been handing them out to grateful recipients in the KC area. The Road Mat Team is a small group of folks from The Road who meet at 6:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless out of plastic shopping bags. For more information, see Darin Schroeder after worship on Sunday morning.
