History

Through faith initiatives among the 93 PMBA congregations, the Bread of LIfe Food Pantry and the Feed My People Hunger Initiative were born. We started with a few shelves of food at the PMBA Resource Center. Soon, we outgrew our “closet” and had to seek another place. Through the kindness and desire to help, Forest Hill Baptist Church opened their doors to our ministry and we began the “Bread of Life Food Pantry.” Numerous clients have crossed our doors from within our own churches, and 41% of our client base are senior adults over the age of 66. The average social security income for most seniors who visit our food pantry is $703 per month.
 
In October 2015, we had to seek another location for the Bread of Life Food Pantry, and Northwest Baptist Church offered us the space we currently occupy. The Bread of Life Food Pantry is located at 407 Petree Road, Winston-Salem, NC 27106, now owned by Emmanuel Church. Most of our clients have made the transition to our new location and we have expanded our ministry efforts to include new families near the present location as well as clients from all areas where PMBA congregations exist. We take referrals from any PMBA congregation, assisting several families from Davie, Stokes, Rockingham Counties as well as the numerous families from Forsyth County.
 
We operate strictly from donations of food and money from local churches, agencies, and individuals.
 

How can you help?

1. Two church-wide food drives per year by your congregation can make all the difference!
2. Volunteering 2 - 4 hours once a month, enables us to be more than just a Food Pantry.
3. Praying for this ministry, energizes and gives hope to those who do volunteer and open their pocketbooks to help!
4. Consider making the Bread of Life Food Pantry a part of your church’s Hunger initiative. (Remember: We always take time to minister to our clients, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, handing out devotional material, praying with our clients and even visiting them in the hospital or attending funerals.)

Back Yard Bible Club

The Back Yard Bible Club (BYBC) ministry in Germanton has successfully been coordinated by Sherri and Rodney Montgomery to nurture the physical and spiritual needs of that community. As a former teacher, Sherri has a passion for sharing the love of Christ with students which has also connected her with adults and families who are served as well through this ministry.

During a normal season, they have large group gatherings, small group gatherings, and a meal on Wednesday evenings. The location varies with the seasons and the ministry has generated many of its own leaders. Area churches also have partnered to provide food and other resources extending beyond the involvement of PMBA churches.

Their vision is given as: "Backyard Bible seeks to guide people into a lifelong relationship with God and others. Through God’s Word, discipleship, missions, family and community involvement, the Gospel transforms lives."
