Ricky, Kristal, Mary Jo, Roland and John are among the poorest in Jamaican society. They Struggle against homelessness, drug addiction, crime, abuse and victimisation. Their stories and the stories of others told in this book shed much light on the world of the urban poor. Their life journeys are full of setbacks and dangers but these are also stories of hope brought by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Ministry at the Margins is the account of the first ten years of the HELP Ministry of the Mona Baptist Church. Told through more than 15 case studies, the book explores what happens when this largely middle-class congregation launches a ministry to down and outers of the "Dems of this world" as the author describes those we hold at arm's length or would rather not encounter. Struggle, survival and transformation is what the book is all about. Change happens for those served by the ministry and for the church itself as uptown and downtown cultures collide and prejudice and suspicion must be overcome. Dr. Wade takes us through the ups and downs of this challenging ministry and shares the insights gained as he and his team sought to bring the love and grace of God to those at the margins of society.
