Sending Out a SOS – SOS is a Call For Help!
San Francisco is one of the most influential cities in the world. Since the 1960’s our society has gone through tremendous changes away from God and Christian morality. To a large extent, these changes originated in San Francisco.
San Francisco was a leader in the drug movement, introduction of Eastern religions, gurus and cults, new-age thinking, occultism and satanism, radical left-wing political movements, sexual immorality and homosexuality, etc. It was the first US city to allow “topless” bars and have a “Church of Satan.” Militant homosexuals have obtained tremendous power in this city, which has become the first to officially endorse homosexual relationships.
San Francisco has been called “the smut capital of the world” because not a single pornographer has been prosecuted here since 1971. Teenage boys as young as fourteen work as homosexual prostitutes on the streets. Drugs are taking over many neighborhoods. Police believe that over half of the low-income housing projects in San Francisco are controlled by drug dealers.
Thousands of homeless people wander the streets, most addicted to drugs and alcohol. Meanwhile, the AIDS epidemic is sweeping through the homosexual population of the city. Thousands have died of this disease and tens of thousands are infected with the AIDS virus.
Evangelism Ministry & Outreach
We organize three “Church on the Street” outreaches each month in San Francisco or Berkeley on Saturday afternoon. Local churches bring their worship group and conduct a church service in a downtown park. We have found this very effective in spreading the gospel. We also witness three times a month in San Francisco on Friday night. Several times during the week our staff is out preaching the Gospel in San Francisco, Oakland, & San Jose.
Our special mission is to reach the people of the San Francisco Bay Area for Jesus. Each summer, we hold a four day long, intensive evangelism outreach called SOS San Francisco. Thousands of Christians have participated in these outreaches, and have had their lives transformed and blessed through them.
Our Evangelism Ministry House
SOS operates a ministry house in Oakland, California that offers a year-long, evangelism training program for those who want practical experience in evangelism.
