Florida Conference In Mission is a monthly video series about people reaching people.

This month’s video highlights Impact Community Mission Group’s unique approach to outreach in Key West where most people have a strongly negative view of religion.

Impact Community Mission Group in Key West, Fla., has a different way of looking at outreach. The church is located in an area where people have a negative view of religion and are not readily open to have the gospel seeds planted in their lives.

Impact Community calls its style of outreach, “plowing the ground,” because members are trying to break down the walls against religion by revealing God’s love to people in as many creative ways as possible. They do things like handing out free soda on street corners, giving free car washes without accepting donations, and walking the streets, offering to have prayer with people. They also connect with neighborhoods by hosting block parties. They take out a grill and serve free food to the whole neighborhood, play games with the kids, and try to create a fun atmosphere. Then, they follow up that party by returning the following week for games with the kids and holding an outdoor church.

However, the members don’t limit themselves to only a few types of events. The idea is to be creative about how they show love, and do it in ways that people wouldn’t expect. This helps disarm people and allow them to see through to the love that God has placed in each of their hearts.
