Welcome to Season 5! Today we speak with Marissa Sabio, one of the Program Directors for Outreach Community Ministries. Outreach is an amazing ministry that helps the most vulnerable in our community and I am sure many of our listeners have similar ministries within their own communities. Thus, I am so excited to have a talented and gifted person like Marissa on to speak about the exciting work Outreach is doing, but also how Christians can become involved in the mission the gospel compels us all to be part of in caring for and empowering the most vulnerable, forgotten, and oppressed in our communities.
We begin with a prayer (00:41), our lunch menu (01:35) Marissa's work (02:21), Marissa's personal story of faith in following Christ as Lord and Savior (03:46), what is Outreach Community Ministries (09:05), the main areas of contact for Outreach Community Ministries in the Western Chicago Suburbs (10:22). why was Outreach Community Ministries founded (11:40), Marissa's role and ministry within Outreach Community Ministries (14:00), what compelled her to be part of Outreach Community Ministries (24:10), stories she loves to share about Christ's love, grace, and salvation to others through Outreach Community Ministries (29:24), why she feels it is vital for Christians to be part of ministries like Outreach (and organizations like it) around the nation and the world (37:36), ways a congregation or group of churches can begin to reach out and alongside the poor and oppressed (40:00), ways working in ministry through Outreach Community Ministries strengthened and changed her walk with Christ (42:51), and a blessing (46:18).
