The vision of The By Name Project was realized in the later part of 2016, when President, and founder Jeff Wright, began to obediently surrender to the Lord's calling for him in ministry on the streets of Sumter here in South Carolina. Initially, this ministry began by approaching individuals in the community who simply looked hungry and lost. One by one, their immediate need was being met, and the opportunity was being seized to show the love of Jesus through action. Over the course of the next few weeks, Jeff began to call on our Lord to send him help if it be His will. Our faithful God did just that. One by one, people who had been praying for clarity on the recent callings they had felt were divinely directed to The By Name Project which now consists of 4 staff members (Jeff, Adam, Samantha and Renee), and multiple loving volunteers. Within the next couple of months The By Name Project became a 501(c)3, Non-Profit organization and continued to let the Spirit of Jesus Christ lead the way. As an organization, we began to meet and minister at a local park in town across the street from Burger King on the Corner of Lafayette and Calhoun St. in Sumter. Since then, TBNP has continued to (via donations) provide good food, and new to gently used clothing for our friends at the park on the first and third Saturday every month. Praise be to our God for leading His children to give so generously. The only word that can fully express what goes on at that park when we share a meal with each other, and the less fortunate are clothed, and life stories are listened to, and people are poured into... is Jesus. It's life-changing, it's the Gospel, it's the Kingdom, it's Jesus! And we are so excited in seeing how Jesus uses this ministry in the upcoming year!
