ABOUT SANDTOWN MISSION PROJECT
Just a little over a year ago, the Sandtown neighborhood of Baltimore was in turmoil as residents tried to make sense of the death of Freddie Gray. You may recall the images of the City with angry mobs, burning buildings, and police in riot gear. You may also recall that the SED called for a gathering of prayer cards from our congregations and schools to distribute throughout the city. Congregations throughout the District
joined in a day of prayer for all of our cities.
A social enterprise candy store
From this response, a Baltimore Summit Group formed to continue praying for the residents and neighborhoods of Sandtown. This group continues to meet and, as a result, the Sandtown Project has emerged as an opportunity to grow a ministry presence in this area.
- A 3-story row house building has been identified to provide real space for building relationships with community residents as well as to provide a missionary-in-residence with housing.
- The first floor will serve as the production facility for a candy-making social enterprise business.
- The second floor will offer sacred space and rooms for training, mentoring, tutoring, as well as an administrative office.
- The third floor will serve as living quarters for the missionary director.
- Working-aged men will be intentionally discipled in a Christ-centered employment and personal development program.
