I've been able to donate and volunteer for this ministry over the years, and I absolutely love to see the difference that the people of Parker Street Ministries make in the community.
I especially appreciate what's done during the annual Fall Festival and Christmas Store, though I look enjoy seeing perennial effects as well.
Parker Street Ministries is a real effort to help people find Jesus and figure out life as a healthy thriving community. They live and work within the urban downtown Lakeland neighborhood, being a beacon and living by example. I have personally known the director since the birth of the ministry. I couldn't be prouder of this young man, his wife, and their staff. At PSM, passion runs high and if you get involved you will experience their bond with their neighbors. They are truly missionaries.
I've followed and have been involved with Parker Street Ministries for around 8 years. They continue to be a caring and effective organization with strong leadership and a capable staff. On top of that, they run lean, operating well below the overhead of many other ministries I've encountered. Great people, and a clear focus on the people they serve.
Parker Street Ministries is such an important organization for the Lakeland Community. It has helped so many families struggling to provide for themselves and especially their children. PSM does this in a way that doesn't take away a persons dignity or self worth. This year the children at my Sunday School are giving their offerings to support this worthy ministry that is right in their own back yard. Thank you, PSM, for all you do to help encourage those who need a helping hand.
My wife and I have supported and volunteered with Parker Street Ministries for over 10 years. Their faithfulness in the Parker Street community is a powerful asset to the city of Lakeland and the kingdom of God. They make every donation count. The residents' lives are being changed because they are there!
