Pastor Jose Aguayo, a volunteer Billy Graham Rapid Response chaplain, explains the “Adopt a Block” ministry in Ferguson. The plan coordinates each participating church/ministry to literally adopt a square block for ministry purposes, in this case in Ferguson, MO. They knock on each door … usually weekly … to show support and the love of Jesus to the people in each residence.
The early reports of the participating ministries are rejoicing in the early response.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association sponsors and provides materials in training for “Adopt A Block.”
Pastor Jose would be delighted to hear from you, welcoming your call to learn more – such as the dates for upcoming training sessions. He can be called at (314) 503-8302 or emailed at email@example.com.
