Jesus Burgers has remained the same since 2001 when a small group of people grilled, flipped,and served the ministry's first burger, with a ketchup heart and a mustard cross.
The story of Jesus Burgers is told through the stories of over twenty people whose lives were transformed through this ministry in Isla Vista, California, an infamous party town adjacent to the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Sharing the love and hope of Jesus through a simple hamburger is what Jesus Burgers is all about. Isla Vista Church, a family of believers (mostly college students and young adults), have gathered weekly to serve burgers to the hundreds of partiers walking down a street full of house parties for over a decade now. The city has come to know and appreciate not only this ministry, but also the many lives this ministry has transformed.
The success of Jesus Burgers is spreading, inspiring other college campus ministries across the country to launch their own Jesus Burgers outreach ministries. This book records only a few of the thousands of inspirational stories that have emerged from Jesus Burgers' ministry of service. This is the Jesus Burgers story.
