Hello, and thank you for your interest in what God is doing through preaching His Word. We are Kyle Joe and Lisa Hicks and have been in the inner city of Detroit, most of our lives. Saved as a child, I began working early in the bus ministry under Dr. Bill Pennel and L.E. Traxler, on the route going through the inner city of Detroit. We have seen many who have been consumed by the ravages of drugs, prostitution, alcohol, violence, and homelessness but thank the Lord that in that time we have seen the great joy of the saving grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ that is able to redeem a condemned soul from the gates of Hell, at times, only hours away from death.
The Lord has allowed our unique ministry to continue now for well over 30 years. Originally known as Crossover Ministries and then re-organized in 2002 as Outcry Ministries. My wife Lisa and I have been married for over 15 years now, and though we have no physical children of our own, the Lord has graciously supplied to us of his children, young people that we have been able to encourage and influence for Jesus Christ, some from their infancy. Though the Lord has granted victories, we have also endured losses. We are continually reminded that we labor because Jesus Christ is worthy of those on the streets, NOT because those on the streets are worthy of Jesus Christ.
We are sent out through Word For the World Baptist Ministries in Rossville Georgia. Our home Church is Prayer Baptist Church, in Westland Michigan, under Pastor Larry Bartlett. We hold our "Youth Mission" discipleship services on Tuesdays at Springwells Avenue Baptist Church in Detroit, MI, Pastor Kevin Clark and on Thursdays at The Lighthouse Baptist Church in Lincoln Park, with Pastor Ron Leggit. We also are faithful to preach in the open air at many events including: motorcycle rallies, parades, sporting events,etc. and any other places of opportunity around the United States. I am available for meetings, youth preaching’s, or simply to present the burden that God has placed upon my wife and I for his Glory.
Through out the year we publish a news magazine of events in our ministry as well as a re-cap and accounting of our efforts. As this becomes available it will be posted in downloadable and printable format or if you wish you may contact me to be added to our mailing list.
