Red Wagon


The Red Wagon Ministry started with a little red Radio Flyer wagon. A young couple filled it with coffee and cups, sandwiches, and the Word of God and began going out to the streets of Santa Ana to minister to the poor, needy, and homeless.


The red wagon still exists, well used, and is now retired. In its place is a larger, heavy-duty wagon that enables us to move our supplies handily back out to the streets of Santa Ana. Red Wagon currently operates as an outreach ministry to lost people, strangers, homeless, orphans, prisoners, and those in bondage to alcohol or drugs.


Every Monday, we open in prayer, then head to the Civic Center, continuing in prayer as we step out in faith while we share the Gospel, taking prayer requests and ministering to those out on the streets. As we walk, we hand out Blessing Bags, juice, and waters with healthy bars, snacks, crackers, packaged soups, and copies of Living Water (The Gospel of John) with Scripture-wrapped spoons and forks. In addition, we may hand out clean clothes, socks, toiletries, Bibles, and tracts, depending on what donations we receive. Finally, we take precious prayer requests from those who are struggling or lost. Sharing the Gospel with those who are not saved and praying for their personal needs and struggles is our ministry service.
