You don’t want to miss this opportunity to hear Mike Yankoski speak. The following is taken from Mike’s biography. https://www.ambassadorspeakers.com/speakers/unique/mike-yankoski
What would it be like to be homeless? Does Jesus love the people on the streets? Could I survive out there?
Mike Yankoski did more than just ask hypothetical questions. By his own choice, Mike’s life went from upper-middle class plush to scum-of-the-earth repulsive overnight. With only a backpack, a sleeping bag and a guitar, Mike and his traveling companion, Sam, set out to experience life on the streets in six different cities. From Washington D.C. to San Diego, they put themselves to the test and pushed their faith into new realms.
For more than five months Mike and Sam experienced firsthand the extreme pains of hunger, the constant uncertainty and danger of living on the streets, exhaustion, depression, and social rejection—and all of this by their own choice. They wanted to find out if their faith was real, if they could actually be the Christians they claimed to be apart from the comforts they’d always known. They wanted to discover first hand what it means to be homeless in America, and how Christians are–or aren’t–responding with Jesus-like love.
Now Mike Yankoski has a passion to inspire audiences around the world to put their faith into action, to serve the least of these, and to follow God to the margins of our society.
Michael is a PhD Candidate at the University of Notre Dame in Moral Theology and International Peace Studies, has served on the Board of Directors at World Vision, and is the author of four books.
