About Misfits for Jesus

"Ruth", the Misfits for Jesus bus that was used in the homeless ministry in downtown St. Louis

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

 

Randy Abbott and Jon Schultz met at a St. Louis homeless shelter where they felt led by the Spirit of God to reach out to the homeless. After going separate avenues in ministry to the homeless, they joined together to create Misfits for Jesus in 2007!  God blessed Misfts for Jesus  with an opportunity to serve the homeless of St. Louis from May 2007 until April 2012.

Thursday night cookouts and bible studies at an abandoned building in downtown St. Louis soon transformed into brief interactive messages, the distribution of food and clothing items and the opportunity to meet many new friends and brothers and sisters in the Lord who very likely would not be attending church. The heart of Misfits for Jesus was to bring church to them

 

But, that chapter of the Misfits for Jesus came to an end when Jon became involved in a church in O’Fallon, Illinois.  He is focused on raising a growing family, including twin boys, and going back to school to try and get out of the back-breaking trade of bricklaying. He continues to be involved in many Misfits for Jesus outreaches and is occasionally a guest speaker.

 

After prayerful consideration, Randy and a core group of Misfits decided to go to the Warrenton and Wright City, Missouri areas and continue to focus on spreading the good news about Jesus Christ.

MISFITS TODAY

 

The Church is people, not a building.  God put it on the hearts of Randy and Jon to feed the homeless both physically and spiritually through brief encounters.  But, even more than that, they long to disciple whom ever the Lord brings their way.  That is the heart of the Misfits for Jesus ministry that always remains.  The ministry has grown with Randy Abbott as the Pastor and Barry Price and Jeremy Williams as Associate Pastors.
