street called straight

The name “Street Called Straight” comes from Acts 9:11. The Lord appeared in a vision to a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”. Despite of his fears Ananias went to the Street Called Straight, and because of his faithfulness and obedience Saul received his sight. Street Called Straight is a two part ministry. It serves the Ananias’s by challenging “average”, “everyday” Christians to experience God’s awesome power by stepping out on faith in their service to him. It serves the Saul’s by meeting people right where they are to show them God’s love for them through our words and our actions, without judgement. The first thing Ananias said when he walked into that house on Straight Street was, “Brother Saul, Jesus sent me.” In that meeting Saul’s life was changed forever, and he went on to do many great things for the Kingdom of God. Our desire is to see that same life changing effect of God’s love duplicated over and over again in the lives of anyone who comes in contact with this ministry.
