Restoring Hearts Ministries of Trenton is in the business of bringing hope to the hopeless by shining the light of Jesus Christ into the darkness through evangelism and relationship-building. As Christians we have been called to love, which Restoring Hearts does through service to the least of these. As servants of Christ we go where he is, and scripture shows us that he could always be found among the hurting. “Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:26
Jesus has a heart for the lost and broken-hearted, and as a ministry we have been directed to bring the message of Christ’s love to homeless, destitute, addicted, and hopeless people in the Trenton, Bordentown, Hamilton, and Ewing areas. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:11-15
Restoring Hearts has been called by Christ to build relationships where we can come alongside of individuals and support them in a multitude of ways; such as emergency food support, clothing needs, connecting to needed resources, counseling, prayer, drug rehabilitation, goal setting to end homelessness, temporary shelter, and many others areas specific to the individual. We take a personal approach with each individual we come across. Additionally, we provide support to the community with outreaches that provide not only material needs, but also spiritual: Church in the Park, July Fourth Free BB-Q, Free Store in the Park, School Supply Distribution, Blanket Distribution, and most recently Living Water Outreach. Most importantly our mission is to introduce people to Christ so that they can build relationship in Him and have everlasting life through Him.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells His disciples to go, and as they go, they are to make disciples. This means wherever we are, we are to share the hope of Jesus Christ with those around us. The everyday moments we walk through provide opportunities for unbelievers to look into our lives, to be amazed, ask us questions, and for us to have an answer ready for why we have hope. This is our mission as we evangelize in the saddest parts of the city, to live Christ’s love out loud to those who may or may not know Him.
We invite you to come alongside us through prayer, service, and/or donations. Check out our
