4th Annual Operation Jesus: Chicago on Christmas Day
It doesn't take a company, an organization or a church to give. Each person individually can join together to serve those in need. Join us on Christmas Day in Downtown Chicago as we give to others!
Let's break cultural and denominational lines to do what Jesus made so crystal clear in Matthew 25 ... When we serve the least of these, we actually do it unto him.
Bring your family, your church members, friends and neighbors to hand out care packages from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Christmas morning, Sunday, December 25. This event is free but registration is required.

History of Operation Jesus: Chicago
It all started in 2012 with one person’s burning desire to show the love of Christ to those who are often forgotten during this season. One Christmas Eve, a group of friends gathered blankets, sandwiches, chili, homemade cookies, and hygiene items and hit the streets of downtown Chicago to serve the poor and homeless. And we’ve been doing it ever since …
We've had over 50 random volunteers, individuals, family members and complete strangers come together from multiple churches. We split up into walking and driving teams with designated maps and stop points to pour the love of Jesus on the streets of Downtown Chicago. Will you join us?
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Take the train, the El, a bus, or drive downtown and park. We will have a central rally location where our teams will meet and disperse.
