About The Event
Join us for this special guest this Sunday; Scott and Wendy Couper.
Scott has stepped into a new season and calling as a “Street Level Advocate” in Peterborough’s city core, where a population of over 80,000 reports more than 300 homeless individuals (Peterborough Social Services, July 2021). Unemployment, food insecurity and inadequate housing are severe issues often compounded by mental health challenges, addictive behaviours, loneliness, and lack of purpose. Scott is intentionally present among individuals who need to see God’s love demonstrated toward them. He knows that through kindness expressed in non-judgmental ways, that hope can be realized (Romans 2:4) and the love of Christ experienced. Utilizing his many connections with church leaders, social services and local police, Scott builds relationships and connects individuals to helpful services and resources. His deepest desire, however, is to be a human bridge, seeing people restored to a right relationship with a Heavenly Father who loves them and has a good plan for their lives.
