What We Do

Rescue the Forgotten

Bread of Life intentionally seeks out the homeless, helpless and the hungry. These individuals have been thrown away by society and are rescued from the streets, garbage dumps, train stations and transformed into productive citizens. In many cases, these individuals reach out and become the rescuers themselves.

Ordinary to Extraordinary

Bread of life intentionally invites ordinary people to move into extraordinary lives through acts of service. We do this by empowering, encouraging, and equipping people to live for something bigger than themselves. When ordinary people become empowered, encouraged and equipped then they become extraordinary.

God Changed My Life

From the cold streets, train stations, and hopeless situations these men were rescued by Bread of Life. Bread of Life places these forgotten men into the New Life Rescue Center. And in the NLRC, these men learn what it means to find their identity in Jesus. Upon successful graduation these individuals enter society as extraordinary citizens.

Our Ministries

Bread of Life is leading with new and innovative ways. Here is a list of our projects as we Rescue the Forgotten, turn Ordinary to Extraordinary and Expand the Reach of the Gospel of Christ.

New Life Rescue Center

We rescue homeless-men from the streets, former prisoners with no place to go, and recovering addicts wanting a new start in life. At the New Life Rescue Center these individuals are educated, trained and discover their life with purpose. Upon successful graduation these individuals enter society as extraordinary citizens.

Holy Start

Not only does love warm the heart and a good meal the body, but God warms both heart and soul with his love. Many have no food to eat, especially a warm meal. At the Holy Start Soup Kitchen people find both. Here we are able to provide food, clothing, haircuts, therapy, Bible study, prayer, and most of all the love of Christ.

Rescue Children

More and more children are fighting for their life. Many fighting cancer and life treating diseases, families left hopeless. Bread of Life looks to rescue these children and their families by providing them hope and the opportunity to gain the financial resources for necessary medical operations, therapy and medicines.

Extraordinary Leadership

Each week we move the ordinary to become extraordinary. We do this by developing the idea that we are not to live just for self, but rather to live for something bigger then ourselves-for God and for others. This is the core of discipleship.

ER "Education Rescue"

We fight poverty like it is a disease. Not just physical poverty but educational poverty. We believe that no one should go hungry, suffer from abuse (physical or substance), and live a life by being forgotten. We look to train, provide, and equip children from preschool to university thus giving them the power to break generational poverty and overcome physical and substance abuse.


Through local micro-businesses, we grow local crops for food, trees to sell, bees that produce local organic honey, small personal chicken farms, operate an electronic repair shop and much more to create sustainability.

Plant Local Churches

It’s the responsibility of the local church to make disciples of all people everywhere. Bread of Life is actively developing, strengthening, and equipping local and international churches. Through these efforts we are seeing new churches and para churches reaching their communities and our world for the cause of Christ. This is beautiful.

Rescue Doctors

Many around the world are ‘blind’ and unable to care for themselves, work, go to school and find independence. Our team of specialist’s travel Europe and Africa examine eyes and creating prescription glasses enabling many to see well for the first time in their lives. While at the same time bringing new techniques and equipment to poorer countries, helping equip local doctors.

Giving hope from the author of hope, Mirek share’s how Jesus can change the lives of youth for a stronger future.
