Meet the Pearce family! Robbie and Gretchen are longtime supporters and monthly donors of Parker Street Ministries. Along with their three girls, Amelia, Genevieve, and Hattie Mae, they are faithful pray-ers and love to volunteer together at the Neighborhood Christmas Store in December!

What is your connection/history to PSM?
We met Tim and Christy Mitchell 15 years ago through Trinity Presbyterian Church which is how we learned about PSM. We immediately knew this ministry was different, in some of the very best ways. They don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk.

Why monthly giving and why PSM?
PSM truly serves their community as the hands and feet of Jesus. Giving monthly is a great reminder to pray for the ministry and its staff while offering them a known amount with which they can predict and plan ahead.

What has God taught you because of this connection to PSM?
You don’t have to travel across the world to be mission minded.

Favorite PSM memory?
We love helping to set up the Parker Street Christmas Store. It’s already on our calendar for December 8 at 6:00 p.m. Please join us!
