People Being Jesus (PBJ) is a unique ministry, with a focus on directly serving LGBTQ people, homeless people and people living with HIV. The ministry goes beyond spiritual care to address the needs the community members who show up, many of whom are referred by an HIV service provider. Funds will go to grow the ministry to include support groups.
