Urban ministry

Pat & Sheila smith

VBC's Urban Ministry currently takes place in Oakland and is led by our own Pat & Sheila Smith, longtime members of our VBC family. After God redeemed their own lives of brokenness, He turned Pat & Sheila's hearts to help those in crisis, addiction and homelessness. The Urban Ministry provides not only daily necessities (such as food and toiletries), but the volunteers enter into a relationship with the ones they serve and share the Good News of Christ.  

 

The mission of VBCs Urban Ministry is to reveal the way of salvation to all who hear the gospel and to make the most of all opportunities so that people may become part of the kingdom and may join us in spreading the gospel, all enabled by the Holy Spirit, of course. Currently, the services offered are:

Samson and Qamar Titus

Samson and Qamar oversee and lead Ten.14 Ministries in Pakistan. The goal of the ministry is to increase the ministry workforce, provide reliable transportation for the ministers in Pakistan, stimulate the local Pakistani economy, provide ambulatory care to the “Untouchables”, and help provide an opportunity for quality education for those who would not have it otherwise through Daniel's School System.


Samson and Qamar were born and raised in Pakistan as fourth generation Christians and have been married since 1989. After attending All Nations Christian College in London, England, they returned to Pakistan in 1991 to work with the tribal (Bheel) people in southern Pakistan. In 1994 they came to US and were ordained to be ministers of the Gospel in 1995. They set up the mission’s office to raise much needed financial support for the work of Ten.14 ministry in Pakistan. After Qamar’s Father, Dr. William Daniel, passed away in 1996, they were placed in the leadership position to oversee the work in Pakistan.
