InAsMuch

InAsMuch Ministry is a ministry of Broadway Christian Church in Fort Wayne that is supported by 25 area churches, including Covenant. We presently give the ministry $500 per month out of our Mission & Outreach budget. Others in our church give additional gifts each month.

InAsMuch serves the poorest of the poor (many the Townships can’t help) by providing the following:

  • food – for persons without food stamps (or who are at the end of the month)
  • clothing
  • help with getting an I.D. or birth certificate – especially for those just released from prison
  • bus passes for looking for work or going to medical appointments
  • financial help – for rent or utilities. An agreement is written that requires things such as: look for work at ten places, do a budget, do two Bible worksheets, attend worship at a church of their choice, etc. They are always required to go to their township trustee for help first. We also inform them of other local agencies for assistance.

Open 9 a.m. until about noon Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, the ministry is housed in a building at 930 Broadway (owned by Broadway Christian Church). Clients are let in at 9 a.m., then the doors are locked. The ministry will assist only those there at that time; usually around 25-40 people. There are usually 15 or so volunteers to help serve them.
