Missionary Focus
Jamie and Andrea Thompson and their four young sons live in Garfield Park, an inner-city area of Chicago. He is the pastor of Reborn Community Church and Executive Director of Reborn Ministries. He compares the ministry to the parable of the good Samaritan: Getting involved, nurturing and leaving people in a better place. He says, “Meeting needs has given us open doors and platforms just to share truth and see people’s lives transformed. ” The area has the largest number of murders in Chicago, more than 40% live below the poverty line, and unemployment is 19%. The list of ways to help is inexhaustible. The ministry owns 25 buildings, providing homes for 80 families. They hope to create small businesses such as laundromats and car washes that provide that provide employment for the people and income for the ministry.
