Downtown Ministries

Founded in 2013, DOWNTOWN Ministries is a volunteer driven organization that fills the needs of over 3,000 individuals and families each month in Bradenton.  We do this primarily through our community food programs, clothing and shoe distribution program, homeless outreaches, and neighborhood Adopt-A-Blocks.  Our purpose is to reconnect people to God and to give support by providing services that address short-term and long-term needs of our downtown community.

If you are interested in volunteering with this ministry, contact the church office – office@benevachristian.com
