Open Door Skid Row Ministry holds weekly worship services on the sidewalk at 5th & San Pedro St. in downtown Los Angeles.

Open Door Skid Row Ministry marks their seventh anniversary operating the sidewalk church in downtown Los Angeles.

Activities include a healing worship service on Thursday, November 19, at 7 p.m., on the corner of 5th St. and San Pedro St. Dr. James Jordan, son of legendary missionary Fred Jordan, and Dr. Cherylynn Lee will host a pain management clinic.

The celebration continues on Friday, November 20, at 7 p.m., with a concert featuring Brent Jones and the KJLH Radio Free Choir. On Friday, November 27, at 7 p.m., the anniversary worship service takes place at the Church of the Nazarene, located on 6th and San Pedro St.

Open Door Skid Row Ministry, founded by Evangelist Geraldine Hughes, conducts sidewalk worship services every week comprised of prayer, praise and worship, sermon and concluding with a hot meal. The ministry also distributes clothes, blankets, shoes, shocks, sleeping bags and toiletries when available.

“Through this ministry, we have seen more than 4,500 souls saved, many return to families, get jobs, deliverance from drugs and alcohol and I have seen a man with a lunatic spirit return to his right mind,” said Hughes.

“If you are unable to attend, please consider supporting Open Door Skidrow Ministry’s sidewalk church by making an online donation to:,” she added.

Contributions may be sent to Open Door Skid Row Ministry, 38713 Tierra Subida Avenue, #200-142, Palmdale, CA 93551. For more information, call (661) 208-2143.
