Christmas Bags for the Homeless

Amazing Love Ministries, Inc. was founded by Barbara and Jim Killeen in March 2005.It has grown from feeding 20 homeless people in downtown Tampa to feeding 150-200 people.We serve every Monday evening at 7:00 PM at 3304 E Columbus Dr, Tampa, FL 33605. The feeding is served and supported by volunteers from many churches in the Tampa Bay area. Besides a hot meal and drinks, people are also given a bag lunch to take with them.The ministry provides many of the items that people need to live on the street: clothing, backpacks, shoes, blankets, toiletries, etc. The main purpose of the ministry is to bring the good news of Jesus to the lost and hurting. There are praise and worship and a message given each week after the meal by different volunteers. The ministry has a vision for a future drop-in center near downtown where people can take showers, do laundry, store belongings, and receive other services. Everyone who desires to serve the Lord by serving our brothers and sisters on the street is invited to join us anytime.

Every Third Monday of the month First Baptist-Dover supplies the food.
