M2540's purpose is to reconnect isolated people to God and a community of support by providing human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of homelessness, hunger, poverty, and addiction.
Its mission is to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the
homeless and at risk community, where they are, by:
Reaching them for Christ through personal and group evangelism,
prayer, discipleship, bible and other Christian literature distribution
Displaying the love of Christ through the development of authentic
relationships, regardless of the reason they are homeless
Romans 3:21-25, Ephesians 3:14-19
Conveying to the homeless community that God has not forgotten
Isaiah 41:17, Psalm 140:12, Luke 4:16
Acting as the hands and feet of Christ by consistently providing:
1 John 3:17, Deuteronomy 15:7-11
We meet on Mondays at 6pm at the M2540 building,
(3406 6th Ave, Columbus), where we prepare/pack the meals, finalize the logistical plan, conduct a safety brief and pray for the evening's outreach.
We depart for the streets at 7pm to share the Gospel message along with the following:
Home-cooked meals-mobile hunger relief (meaning that we deliver the meals to them where they are-in the woods, under bridges, etc.)
Hygiene items (toilet paper, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, wash cloths, deodorant, razors, etc.)
Shelter items-blankets, tents, hand warmers, etc.
First aid items
Other items to enhance their existence
Assisting with housing placement
