What We do


Isaiah 61 Initiative - Working together in America's inner cities


The Isaiah 61 Initiative is calling missionaries to the inner cities of America to plant and facilitate biblically functioning faith communities. Sun Ministries is facilitating a missionary movement to America. We are working with a growing group of ministries and people that see the plight of Americas urban areas. The Isaiah 61 Initiative is bringing innovative ideas to age old problems. The approach combines three distinct efforts into one larger work.




The Opportunity Center - Working together to empower people


  • The Opportunity Center includes our wood working facility, sewing center, maintenance services and other social enterprises. The Opportunity Center brings educational and business opportunity assistance to the inner city of North St. Louis. It utilizes these resources to support our missionaries and their work building a faith community. It also provides resource for job training, remedial education and tutoring, small business development, and income support for widows, orphans, the poor and the missionaries to America that are dedicated to working with them.


The Leadership Center - Working together to train tomorrows leaders


  • The Leadership Center focuses on training young leaders in non-traditional approaches to long standing problems. The Leadership Center will approach this through developing leadership in the local faith community. The Leadership Center provides leadership development and support to all of Sun Ministries' efforts. It also offers ongoing support to creative and innovative ideas that have the potential to make a generational impact in the poorest areas of America.


Narrow Gate - The entry point to the faith community


  • The Narrow Gate is the most ambitious project we have ever launched. The Narrow Gate seeks to address the issue of homelessness from a spiritual, physical, and emotional approach. By offering discipleship, employment, housing, and coaching, we seek to end homelessness one person at a time as they are introduced to Jesus and shown how His love can bring healing and restoration to their lives..


Volunteer or stay informed


  • One of the goals of our mission is to see people working together on common ground. We ask people to register in our volunteer database and then we keep them informed of volunteer opportunities in the St. Louis area.
