Mephibosheth is a Jesus centered non-profit outreach located in The Dalles Oregon.
We exist to engage individuals with God's love, build relationships and help individuals experience healing, restoration, and removal of shame from the result of a broken past through faith in the Messiah.
We believe God made all mankind in His image and not beyond His love, forgiveness and restoration.
Establishing a relational bridge, sharing the love of God through fellowship & action. We meet with members of our community, engaging, listening and empathy with the idea that God has made all mankind in His image and not beyond His love and forgiveness.
Advocating, meeting needs and resources through integration with community support and exposure. Working with local faith-based communities, local and national food & clothing services, City Council, law enforcement and charities to establish a network of support and solutions.
It is the hope of this ministry which an individual could receive temporary housing, life skills, job training, making legitimate steps towards health and life apart from homelessness by means of community networking.
To engage individuals with God's love. We exist to build relationships, help individuals experience healing, restoration, and removal of shame from the result of a broken past.
The following scripture and video captures the heart of Mephibosheth:
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to shelter the poor wanderer, when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your flesh and blood?
Mephibosheth engages people unconditionally amid crisis, offering compassion, food, and personal assistance. We are in the process of building short term faith-based programs with the hopes of recovery.
The future hope and purpose of Mephibosheth is to secure a remote safe haven away from access to drugs, alcohol, and past influences contrary to healing offering discipleship and mentoring for individuals that have made a commitment to leave the life of drug use and other forms of self-abuse behind while networking with local resources for the reintegration of lost family, jobs and community.
If you feel that you would like to participate with Mephibosheth or assist in the vision of a safe haven of recovery please feel free to donate.
100% of all donations are directed towards the goal of Mephibosheth and all that it stands for. We are a faith-based ministry powered entirely by volunteers who exist through leading of the Holy Spirit, community networking and charity.
How Mephibosheth Began
About a year ago Todd Mock with Mephibosheth was jogging along the Columbia River when he heard Jesus say “GO”, moving toward a pile of big rocks under The Dalles bridge, there he saw smoke from a warming fire and things strewn about.He ran off to buy a sandwich and came back to the bridge, saying to the pile of rocks: “I was sent from the Lord. I’ve gota sandwich for you.” And then, he recounted, “These little hands come out, and they’re just black.” That first encounter with a longtime homeless man began the work and ministry of Jesus locally with the transient population.
For 24 years he’s helped the homeless in inner cities including Seattle and Chicago...
