Ministry Spotlight and Urgent Request: Kingdompathways.org: Freedom House


I am on the board of a local ministry that is focusing on helping those chemically dependent with housing issues. It is a Christ-centered ministry that is looking to provide a unique Jesus Christ gospel-centered approach to treatment. The owner and his wife have given all they have to give to get things going as awaiting approval for funding from state to provide treatment/services. They achieve this but now have face another barrier of needing to undergo a zoning change by city in order to operate.  The changes will not happen before the end of the month so they ministry needs basic funds in order to operate this month.  Please go to www.kingdompathways.org and check out the ministry. Feel free to ask me any questions. My responsibilities are to oversee the mental health components of the ministry. The current staff are operating on a volunteer basis until state funds come in. Please prayerfully consider giving to this ministry at this time.   Included is the donation letter written by the ministry owner:

To Whom It May Concern,

Kingdom Pathways is a fully published and audited 501(c)(3) and

described in detail at http://www.KingdomPathways.org.

Kingdom Pathways is a multi-church outreach to the homeless, helping the homeless in practical

ways as described at http://www.KingdomPathways.org. Kingdom Pathways gathers multiple

mainline Christian churches together to do bind together in spirit of the

prayer of Jesus in John 17:20-23.

Kingdom Pathways is currently approved for funding through the State of MN,

awaiting a zoning change, and is currently experiencing grave financial

difficulty in the waiting. The difficulty is in paying the basic housing bills

in waiting for the new funding.

Electric and Gas, food bills, phone, household insurance, water, trash, van

insurance, and mortgages all need to be paid in the waiting. Please consider

assisting us.

Kingdom Pathways founder Jim and Lori have given ALL their savings, ALL their credit, and ALL

their hearts to see this succeed. The board that meets regularly to support this

ministry is impressive. See the picture and bios of the team on the website homepage at

Blessed and Grateful,

Rev. Jim Michaud

Exec. Director

Kingdom Pathways, 501(c)(3)

Addendum: Just read rest of board member email and found this piece:

We have a public hearing for the zoning on November 10th, 3:30PM. Please rally
whomever you can to support us on that day in the St. Paul City Council
Chambers on the 3rd floor of the City Hall/Court House Bldg., on the corner of
Wabasha and Kellogg.  (Change of
Non-Conforming Use Sober Housing to Non-Conforming Transitional Housing, which
we have been for 4 years).

  1. Good for you!!!! What a great thing you are doing. I pray you get the support you need. As an addict (8 years clean, woo!) I know how hard it is transitioning into the world as a new sober follower of His word – walking by faith not by sight. It is an uphill battle and a disease that CAN be cured by His teachings. 🙂 Good to see you on here.

  2. Thanks Brrandi. The owner has been a friend of me and wife for years. I am mental health professional and God connected me and him . I am to coordinate the mental health component when things get moving. God has put barriers in place and there have been many lessons. God will bless. I had not made any need known at before this as did not feel my time or place to do so. Now it is. If there is no ability to help the ministry financially please do pray. As in time God will need volunteers and other gifts. THanks for the comment and stopping by the article.
