The Late, Minister Anthony Hodge is the founder of Finding the Lost Sheep Street Ministry and has been in jail 23 times, prison five times and his personal testimony is: “Through drugs, crimes and
violence, from jail to institution, God had a purpose for my life. From the perilous streets of a Central Florida community, through drug addiction to prison, the Lord allowed me to escape Satan's clutches for one divine life mission: to find, to feed, and to be a light to God's lost sheep.”
Anthony & his wife Sharee share the same passion and are fulfilling God’s purpose of bringing people to Christ by going into the streets of Winter Garden, meeting people at their needs and spreading the Truth of the Gospel.
“We get right in the middle of all this and have Church, clothing the naked and feeding the poor.”
Finding the Lost Sheep Street Ministry is a faith-based charitable non-profit ministry dedicated to providing hope and an alternative to those who are caught in the web of drugs, violence, gambling and prostitution. Through outreaches, tent revivals and youth programs, we work to bring them to an authentic relationship with God by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our main purpose is to win souls for the Kingdom of God, so we stop anyone on the street and try to compel them to come in by sharing God’s love in Jesus.”
Anthony, his wife Sharee, and daughter Miracle reside in Winter Garden, Florida.
