Welcome to Jesus Was Homeless
In 2008, Bryan and Amy Stallings founded the non-profit organization, Jesus Was Homeless, and began serving those that were homeless, hurting and hopeless with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Since then, Jesus Was Homeless has grown dramatically! Jesus Was Homeless provides more than a thousand meals each week to those living in weekly and extended-stay motels through the sack-lunch style “Happy Meals” program. Jesus Was Homeless also offers an employment training program, access to healthcare program, community BBQs, Life Support Discussion workshops and performs numerous community service projects each year.
In 2012, Bryan and Amy planted Gateway Branson Church, “a church for people who don’t like church,” a non-denominational Christian church that consists mostly of formerly unchurched people who have begun actively following Christ.
In 2010, Bryan and Amy were the recipients of the Community Spirit Award by the Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, and in 2011, they were presented with the Christian Service Award by Bott Radio Network. In 2013, Jesus Was Homeless was named the Charity of the Year by the Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.
Jesus Was Homeless has been the leader in the community for providing “next steps” through weekly meal delivery, employment training and access to health care to those at or below the poverty line and those that live in weekly and extended-stay motels. Jesus Was Homeless makes a difference by transforming lives, restoring faith, hope, love and dignity in order to break the cycle of poverty for generations to come.
