“After serving 30 years as lead pastor at Menlo Presbyterian, I discovered a ministry called Street Church. I found it interesting that this “church” had been meeting for years, just two blocks from where I spent most of my life. A faithful group of believers served people I didn’t know existed…”street people”…hungry, forgotten, ignored…people with no voice, no advocate. My ministry passion has been totally redirected since joining that faithful team, and beginning to know, touch and care for these persons who have a special place in our Lord’s heart. It occurred to me that if Jesus visited Menlo Park, I would find him hanging out with Street Church. What better place to invest my time and resources. I finally began to practice what I had been preaching for years, to go out and serve.”

-Rev. Walt Gerber, former senior pastor Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
