SHELTERS BY JESUS
Pastor Richard Berry leads Shelters By Jesus, as he has a heart for the homeless in Maine. Your support, contributions and prayers will enable them to meet the needs of those whom God puts in front of them and within their ministry. The shelter is staffed primarily by the residents themselves. Keeping this shelter afloat primarily lands on Pastor Berry’s shoulders as he travels the countryside speaking about the miracles the shelter has produced by God’s grace and accepting love offerings. Pastor Berry says, “It’s all about Jesus!” Physical: first things first; get the homeless off of the street. Spiritual: we teach and heal through God’s Word. We seek to live out our faith through the local church in accordance with the Word of God and to disciple believers to live organized missional lives ensuring that there are no needy among us physically or spiritually as in Acts 4:34. Practical: Shelter staff help them get back on their feet; reconcile with friends and family, heal from addictions and help them get back into society. Come see us in person – we love visitors no matter who or where you are from!
Shelters by Jesus, 12 McLellan Street, Skowhegan, ME04976(207) 474-8833

Youth Movement 360 engages regional youth to gather from all over the North Country once a week. The world is in desperate need of a heart transplant. Deep inside, people are wrestling with a pain that’s leaking out into their lives and spreading to others. We see it all around us. Something isn’t working. A revolution is underway – a change of order. It was started a long time ago by a great teacher on a hilltop in Galilee. He taught his students so they could spread this revolution…and it is working. He taught us that how we act on the outside comes from who we are on the inside. If we’re going to change, it happens first on the inside. YM360 believes that each young person has the potential to play a part in spreading this world revolution. Each young person has a chance to change the world, and we’re committed to helping. It starts on the inside – in their own hearts. And then it grows, until it changes their characters, their choices, even the whole course of their lives. But it doesn’t stop there. It can change their lives, their schools and neighborhood - every person in every relationship they have for the rest of their lives. It can even change the world. And it can all start with them.
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
