DW Wenberg has always had a passion for helping others. Nine years ago at the Adventure Church in Greeley, Colorado, she felt inspired to start a ministry, but didn’t know who would support it. Despite this challenge, she started FAITH (Feeding And Inspiring The Hungry).
With the support of the church, Wenberg found a continuous stream of volunteers, and once a month she and the group began bringing food to those in need. The ministry reaches women, children, retired veterans, and anyone who is in need of food, help and love.
FAITH now provides up to 80 bags containing both food and essentials such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, hats, gloves and even sleeping bags every month. It also provides people with the opportunity for a strong personal connection with Christ. The volunteers spend the afternoon with the people they meet and pray with them. The goal is to share not only food and material necessities, but also the love Jesus gives to all.
The vision for the future is growth. Wenberg wants to reach even more people and expand the ministry to Loveland and Fort Collins. She believes one way to accomplish this is a food truck. She believes that no matter what, God will provide what is needed to fulfill His purpose.
The goal is to remember those who are outside of our everyday life and remember they need love and compassion as well. It is a way to share God’s love and be Jesus’ hands and feet to the community.
