Inasmuch Ministry

More than 30 years ago our benevolence ministry was born when the church secretary began sharing her lunch with people who walked into her office asking for food.  Before long, people were dropping off items at the church to help meet the needs of these individuals.  The Inasmuch Ministry was eventually born out of this act of kindness.


During His time on earth, Jesus said, "Inasmuch as you have done this to one of the least of these, you have done to me."  Our ministry is to the "least of these", and thus the name "Inasmuch".


While Inasmuch is a ministry of Broadway Christian Church, Broadway is only one of the churches that makes up the network of support to make it possible for Inasmuch to help meet the needs of those in Fort Wayne.  A total of 27 other churches and several local businesses support Inasmuch financially, prayerfully, and with volunteers - we call this network "The Family of Churches".


The mission of Inasmuch is to help people in need, offer hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ, and promote personal responsibility.
