Why This Evangelist’s Ministry Does More Than Just Feed the Hungry

by | Feb 9, 2021 | Church & Ministry

Evangelist Christina Perera has a passion for feeding people. But although her various outreach efforts serve the homeless, her true ministry extends far beyond supplying them with food.

“Ultimately, my greatest passion is to feed people—spiritually and physically,” Perera tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. And, she adds, her passion for loving and serving these people has given her a surprising way to build unity in the body of Christ.

“I love just being able to break off a piece of Jesus and just give Him to a hurting world,” Perera says. “There are so many out there who are lost and who are hurting and dying. And we have the bread of life. We have the eternal one. We have the one who sustains us. I love what Peter says. He says, ‘Where could I go? You’re the one who has the words of life.'”

As Perera shares both physical and spiritual bread with the lost and hurting, she says, she loves to partner with other ministries. “We’re all about changing people’s mindsets, as well, especially the way that people see their brothers and sisters in the community. In the kingdom of God, when we do an event, we don’t run everything ourselves. We will partner with different ministries, different churches, different businesses, and we will bring together what everybody is already doing really well.”

This brings the kind of unity the world is seeking, Perera says. “I think it really comes down to seeing Christ in each of us and honoring exactly what each one is already doing really well,” she says. “I love that in ministry, we don’t reinvent the wheel. We just put people in place where they’re already working really well. … And I think just seeing Christ in each other and our work of Christ and one another is the beginning of unity.

“I think it’s really unfair for people to expect unbelievers to lead the world in unity. They don’t understand what unity is,” she says.
