Across the Street Ministries
Across the Street Ministries is a ministry focused on christian community development in the Vandelia Village neighborhood of Lubbock, Texas. They have intentionally served the Vandelia Village neighborhood for over a decade. Vandelia Village is a low-income, under-resourced community that has seen an increase in these levels due to the gentrification of other Lubbock areas. This area is home to many of the forgotten of our community, where beauty is fleeting and survival often overtakes hope.
