Ministry Description
Ransom Ministries was founded in October of 2010 by Matt and Tara Armbruster. Current programs are Ransom Cafe, a donation only cafe that feeds people spiritually and physically; a Community Garden that provides fresh vegetables for African refugee families and the cafes; the Clean Machine- a laundry and shower trailer that is used for homeless ministry; Mission Teams that spend a week or weekend doing service projects with us; Ransom ReProgram, a scriptural based job training program that utilizes the Jobs for Life curriculum to help people obtain and keep meaningful employment; and Ransom on the Road, our food truck that allows us to go to people and show them the love of Christ through a warm meal. Ransom Ministries' motto is, "be Salt, be Light, be Jesus" and we try to do that through each of these programs.

Ransom Café is a project of Ransom Ministries that operates like a restaurant, except with no set menus or set prices. We operate strictly on donations, with the goal to feed people both physically and spiritually. Ransom Café operates in six different locations at churches in the Mobile and Baldwin Counties of Alabama. Your donation helps us imitate Christ’s servant heart as seen in Matthew 20:28, “The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many.”
Ransom ReProgram is an 8-week job skills training program that seeks to provide participants with support services to overcome barriers to employment, helping them move out of dependency and into personal responsibility and self-reliance. ReProgram utilizes the Jobs for Life curriculum, an internationally-recognized job training program that boasts an 80 percent success rate. Participants are paired with a mentor and are taught spiritual principles about work and relating to others.
The Clean Machine is a 22-foot long custom-built trailer fitted with two bathrooms as well as washing machines and dryers. In addition to serving Mobile's homeless community, the Clean Machine is used at local schools to teach children about hygiene. It can also be used to help people affected by natural disasters.
