Gift of God Street Church in Kankakee is a ministry that offers shelter, food, love, and compassion to homeless men, women, and children. Pastor Ed Kannapel, his wife Carole, and other volunteers spend up to 12 hours a day on the streets of Chicago or suburbs searching under bridges and in abandoned buildings for the people who have fallen through the cracks. No matter why they are on the street, Ed shows them the love of Christ. Gift of God Street Church also has a food pantry and bible studies that are open to the community.
