Operation Compassion is a care ministry that has the mission of allowing the Lord Jesus Christ to live His life in this ministry.  The O/C, as it is affectionately called,  is active in street ministry and feeding the homeless both on the street and at the Columbus Men’s Shelter. The Scriptural basis comes from Matthew 25:35-36 , telling us, “for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;  36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.”  We want to share the Gospel with the lost, encourage the weak with the Word of God, and provided care to those society has rejected.

We are a team of caring people who have heard the cry of God over the lost, the hurting, and to those who have no hope. Our purpose is to provide care to those who are not able to care for themselves. We want to show spiritual freedom to those who are trapped in sin, bind up the wounds of the broken, feed and clothe the poor, and show love to the abandoned.  We provide clothing, hot meals, and the Word of God, so that the whole person:body, soul, and spirit, is refreshed, regenerated, and ready to face another day of life, with anew hope, and a new outlook according to God’s word.

    My name is Sharon and I worship with Gary and Jodi Yonek at Haven Community Church. They are great people and have already demonstrated their commitment to your homeless ministry. In a recent conversation, I asked them what they needed to help the ministry move forward. They quickly said they could use a “new” truck as it has been broken down for a couple of years and the volunteers have been distributing goods from their own personal cars. I told them I would research more about it and see if I can help in some way. Gary told me today that the ministry is actually based at your church and someone had started a GoFundMe account to raise money for a truck. What can you tell me about the history of this ministry and the status of the fundraising for the truck? Please email or call me at your convenience (937)642-0435 so that I may learn more about this ministry. Thank you.
