What is ChiHOP?
Courtside Ministries mission is to enable people working in or going in and out of courthouses to experience the love, grace and power of Jesus Christ by inviting His presence through prayer. We desire to see people encouraged through hope, strengthened through prayer, guided by the Bible, helped by the community, reconciled to each other, and forgiven through Christ. To accomplish this mission we will partner with local churches and faith-based social services for sustainable follow-up, discipleship and support.
What do we do?
We offer prayer for people as they enter the courts, share Bibles and biblical resources that relate specifically to their situations, refer individuals to human services organizations (homeless shelters, food banks, legal aid, counseling, and local churches) and conduct follow up contact with any person who needs further help.
