"The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and give his life as ransom for many."
Matthew 20:28

 The Greek word that is translated "serve" in the bible verse literally means to wait on tables and "ransom" means to liberate many from misery.


RUN for RANSOM
5K & Fun Run
February 28, 2015
Battleship Park @ 8 a.m.
Ransom Ministries is hosting a 5K and Fun Run along Mobile Bay with the USS Alabama Battleship and the Mobile skyline in sight. The out-and-back 5K course starts at 8 a.m. and begins and ends at the Battleship, and participants will run along the Causeway. After the race, participants and their families are invited to stay for an awards ceremony and a post-race party. The theme for the Feb. 28 race is Salt Light, which represents Ransom Ministries' mission: Be Salt, Be Light, Be Jesus. Participants will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt with the Salt Light logo on the front. Proceeds from the race will fund several of Ransom Ministries' projects, including Ransom Cafe, a donation-only restaurant with six locations in churches 
across Mobile and Baldwin counties; the Clean Machine, a portable laundry and shower 
trailer; community gardens; and summer youth service camps. For information about
