The Asylum Ministries

Christian Goths and Misfits Since 1998

Jesus did not call to his disciples saying, “I will make you into evangelists and preachers.”  No, he called to them saying “I will make you fishers of men.” That is what we are – a fishing ministry through and through – true evangelism in which The Lord brings those who need Him in.  Our bait follows suit, like a birdhouse in the yard creates a safe place to come, eat, and live; we with The Asylum Ministries create a place where those of the Underground communities, where those who live on the fringes of the mainstream society, are able to come in, be comforted, and find safety and place.

Our art and ambiance, though seemingly morbid, off putting, and scary, is the tool we use to fish for the lost in this world. As it is those who were rejected by men that Jesus spent His time on, so shall we pour out our lives to do whatever He blesses us with the ability to do in order to minister to and lead the lost sheep who live among us in this wilderness of normalcy.


Clergy Appreciation Month

I am going to say, there is something special about the Jewish High Holidays overlapping with Clergy Appreciation Month. You see in Judaism, we believe that during these 10 days of Awe which begin on Rosh Hashanah are about cleansing one’s self of all that might be counted a blemish on our High Priest as He enters The Holy Place before The Lord in order to beg Him for the complete and total pardon of all transgressions in all peoples in all the world. As you spend this month praying and showing thanksgiving for your clergy of all varieties; consider this: “How does your life journey influence their blemishes as they come before The Lord on your behalf?”

What is Christian?

1). A belief that Jesus is the prophesied Messiah, Emanuel, the Son of the Living God, just  as Peter tells Jesus when asked “Who do you say I am?”

2). A life that demonstrates  “True Religion” as found in the book of James…

What is Goth?

Many try to make the claim that Goth is all about the initial “shock factor” but this is simply not the case;  it is first and foremost about not fitting into that socially accepted cookie cutter shape that the world tends to force most people into; it is intentionally and constantly seeking out the flow of artistic individuality that exists naturally in all mankind. It is about stepping up to the plate to reject the views of the world in order to find the true self that lies buried and lost inside oneself.

What is Christian Goth?

1). God created all of us to be unique exhibits of His Shekhinah

2). Each one of us is a collection of masterpieces in this gallery of the terrestrial plane

3). We are all equal and equally treasured, yet all different and unique with our own quirks and marvels.
