Chris Battin lives and works about 45 minutes from the Urban Hope Community Church. He travels that distance at least three times each week to help with many of the ministries at Urban Hope.

God has changed his heart through the ministry of Urban Hope and Chris has developed a strong burden for the hundreds of homeless people living in that area. Chris regularly visits the homeless and brings clothes and food from the church and elsewhere to help those who are hurting or in bondage to sin. Chris has “caught” the concept of ministry to the overlooked. Here is one of his blog posts…

I don’t normally ask people anything about their story of how they got to this point [homeless] in their lives but I did this time. The words just flowed out of my mouth as if God knew I needed to know his answer. God pulled them out without me knowing they were coming.

“When did this journey start for you?” I wasn’t expecting such a quick and painful answer…

“I started down this road the night a stray bullet killed my three-year-old son.”

“Oh my… I’m so sorry… When did that happen?”

“1985”

Stop reading this blog and let that sink into your heart for a bit…
