223. MissionCast – Kingdom House – Leading Congregations into Service

MissionCast:  Kingdom House – Serving Church & Community

Jeff and Jamie

Kingdom House, a mission of the United Methodist Church, has taken seriously the Missouri Conference statement of purpose which is to “lead congregations to lead people to actively follow Jesus Christ.”  They have added a new position to their staff:  Coordinator of Volunteer Mission and Service Learning.  Meet Kenneth Pruitt, who serves in this position, in this MissionCast.

Kingdom House is a Family Support Program serving low-income clients living in the City of St. Louis primarily in zip codes 63104 and 63118.  Services include: brief counseling, case management, trips to the food pantry and thrift store, referrals to other services we do not provide, participation in our Annual Neighborhood Christmas Shop, and the United Way’s “100 Neediest Cases” Program.  Family Support Services helps clients achieve a better life and break the cycle of poverty by helping them identify their resources, needs, and problems.  They locate the barriers to getting needs fulfilled and problems overcome.  They encourage them to find solutions and then take action on those solutions.
