Georgia Avenue Community Ministry
November 30, 2010
I have stopped by the Georgia Avenue Community Ministry on a few occasions and I follow its ministry closely through contacts with its leadership.
I am impressed both with the organization, character, and purpose of this organization. Food security is exactly the sort of radical re-focus that is demanded by the gospel. Teaching brothers and sisters to fish is just not possible in this metropolis. But providing a place and support for brothers and sisters to organize a community to distribute food and other necessities at almost no cost is possible. GACM is proof positive.
The Spirit moves freely. The joy of thanks is evident and constant. And the discipline of community is clear. The shareholders have each other in mind and they support one another with all the things that people need from community - hope, encouragement, mutual aid, and gracious discipline.
I strongly recommend this organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Grant Park, GA
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand it to other communities. It truly is a model for others to follow. It will not solve all of the food security issues for the poor in our city, but it has potential to have a huge impact.
Professional with expertise in this field & I spent a day with the co-op meeting the members who run the operation. .
