REAL PEOPLE SERVING OTHERS IN NEED
Founded in 2012, Operation Jesus is a volunteer organization of CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE that mobilizes people of all different backgrounds to care for the homeless.
It doesn't take a company, an organization or a single church to give. Each person can join together individually to sere those in need. We break cultural and denominational lines to do what Jesus made so crystal clear in Matthew 25 ... When we serve the least of these, we actually do it unto Him.

I was honored to work with other participants who executed their duties well. I was also saddened to see how God's children live homeless without life's basic necessities we
take for granted at times."
- Staff Sergeant Alberty (Army, Ret.), Chicago, IL
I walked up to a man named William who was lying on the cold ground. I asked him how he was doing and he told us he was cold. I introduced myself, asked what his name was, and he was interested in a blanket. He quickly said yes. I wrapped it around him, he was so touched he started crying. His cry was unlike any cry I heard before; it was as if the cries of a small child came pouring out of this grown man. I asked him if I could pray for him and through the tears he agreed. And to my surprise William started praying for us! He prayed that God would bless us for what were doing and protect us while we were out there.
We wished him a Merry Christmas and reminded him that God loved him. I walked away a different person because of this experience. This wonderful God of ours knew what William needed right when he needed it and provided it through us. The thing about this experience is that this awesome human being that we were there for ended up being a blessing to me. I was so touched by this experience that I want more of it. I want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I hope to be a part of Operation Jesus for many years to come."
