Homeless Church Ministry in DC

Join us Monday, March 12th at the Harp and Fiddle as we welcome Brian Lehman, founder of the Church of the Homeless in DC. Brian, an attorney turned pastor, began to fellowship and attend bible studies at the National Community Church along side the homeless of Washington, DC. He soon realized that many of the homeless needed more than an occasional hand-out, they needed a place to live out their faith. He learned from the men and women he fellowshiped with that the homeless often feel unwelcome at area churches. To fill this need, he created Church of the Homeless, a new church plant, to minister to their spiritual needs. They now meet regularly at Union Station.

Brian Lehman has been shaped by the writings of radical Christians such as Shane Clayborne and the inspirational preaching and writings of Mark Batterson at National Community Church. Brian will join us to tell his story, how he learned of this need, and how he answered God's call to serve the homeless. (
