Restoring Hearts Ministries of Trenton is an evangelistic Christian ministry that is focused on bringing hope and love to the communities around us by shining the light of Jesus Christ into the darkness through evangelism, detailed study of the Bible, and walking through life with those that walk with us in a caring and consistent way. As Christians we have been called to share Christ’s truth, love and compassionate care which Restoring Hearts does through service and constant outreach into the communities around us.
As servants of Christ we follow Him, and scripture shows us that He could always be found among the hurting and lost.
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” – John 12:26
Our Savior Jesus has a heart for the lost and broken-hearted, and as a ministry we have been directed to bring the message of Christ’s love to the homeless, destitute, addicted, the gangs, the dealers, to the hopeless and whomever has an ear to hear.
The Bible reminds us that whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.
For the Scripture says,
“Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” – Romans 10:11-15
Restoring Hearts has been called by Christ to build relationships, where we can; to come alongside of individuals and support them in a multitude of ways; such as emergency shelter and food support, to supplying clothing needs, connecting to needed resources and partner organizations, biblical and crisis counseling, prayer, providing guidance to enter drug rehabilitation programs or working through legal issues, and working with the homeless to assist in daily in everything from personal care, plan advancement, program attendance and a variety of advocacy and support services and as well as many others areas of support specific to the individual.
We take both a group and individual approach with the folks we work with to build trust through daily contact, showing consistent care to build true relationships in order to earn the right to correct and teach.
We provide support to the community with outreaches that provide not only basic needs, but also spiritual needs: We work with multiple partner organizations that also have an outreach approach into the community. , we also have several Bible studies/meetings all throughout the city of Trenton, at various times throughout the day were we feed and study together. We invite other churches and organizations to walk with us several times a month as we reach out into the city to care for others. And always our most important mission is to introduce people to Christ so that they can build a true relationship in Him and gain the gift of everlasting life.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells His disciples to go, and as they go, they are to make disciples.
This means wherever we are, we are to share the hope of Jesus Christ with those around us. We do not discriminate, we care for all, believer or not. We look to share everyday moments with those we work with as we walk we provide opportunities for unbelievers to look into our lives and work, to be amazed, ask us questions, and for us to have an answer ready for why we have hope. This is our mission as we evangelize in the most underserved areas of the city; to live Christ’s love out loud to those who may or may not know Him.
We invite you to come alongside us through prayer, service or donation.
