Ways You Can Get Involved
Your involvement is what makes it possible to continue to change the lives of the less fortunate in our community. Pass the Word has been used to create real change in many ways thanks to the faithful support of individuals, companies, churches, and schools. Here are some basic ways you can help our friends in need...
Dave Lucas: Executive Director
Pass the Word Ministry is a movement of compassionate people being faithfully present with our underserved friends who live outdoors or on the streets or in their cars or in the forest or on the dunes here on the Monterey Peninsula. We have lovingly served the displaced in our community alongside amazing volunteers and organizations that, frankly, PTW would crumble without.
While we follow in the rhythms of Jesus of the gospels we welcome people of all backgrounds, all ethnicities, all sexual orientations, & all belief or non-belief structures. This is a ministry of radical hospitality and compassion for the ‘last, the lost , & the least among us-whether rich or poor.’ We do our best to be a shame-free ministry.
If you have a simple desire to be lovingly present with people who live outdoors you are welcome to join us every Saturday morning. We look forward to meeting you.
