Good Measure Outreach
Minister Carlette Bradley, Ministry Head
Good Measure Outreach Ministry (Luke 6:38) empowers all members of the ministry to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the homeless population and all others. We establish and sustain relationships with those that we are drawn to by the direction of the Holy Spirit. While providing natural nourishment outside of the walls of the sanctuary, we introduce non-believers to the bread of life through conversation and prayer. We pray with believers to encourage them to cultivate and/or to renew their relationship with God beyond their current circumstances. Through this ministry it is our objective to be used as vessels to ignite hope and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ so that ultimately, blinded eyes will be opened and that souls are rescued. 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursdays meet at the church at 6 pm to prepare the meal and depart from the church at 7 pm. We return to the church when the Holy Spirit has released us from the ministering to His people.

Christ Academy at the Edison Street Community Church is a collective effort from various gifted teachers who strive to teach the Word of God with integrity and accuracy. The instruction takes place in a intimate yet open environment where questions are encouraged and critical thinking is at home in the Lord’s house. “Line upon line, precept upon precept” is the current teaching format, where book by book and chapter by chapter study takes place. Our goal is to dig deeper into the bible and discover the hidden truths from God for application to the everyday life of the student.
