Ministries was birthed out of a vision to provide more than just clothing, food, and shelter to the homeless and impoverished
of St. Louis. Several members of Crossroad Christian Church were trying to meet these needs. They, along with other area churches,
began driving vans filled with food, clothing, and volunteers each Thursday night to the streets of downtown St. Louis. Their
efforts were joined by St. Louis Christian College, who provided transportation and student volunteers.
This past summer, Lampstand partner with a few local Churches to further expand the impact they are making in St. Louis.
In addition to the weekly routes, plans are being made to start a ministries for transitional
housing and job training.
