SYM expands southward!


We held our first event recently in San Marcos! We are in awe of how God has moved. Two street friends from Austin who are now in San Marcos helped introduce us to five other young adults, and we had a prayer concert! Amazing Grace! And the photo (above) includes a local volunteer as well! God is so good!

Happy about his new bike!

He completed more than 20 volunteer hours helping around the Drop-in Center. Yellow Bike Project is a volunteer-powered initiative to put bicycles on the streets of Austin and Central Texas by operating community bike shops, teaching bike mechanics and maintenance, and acting as a local bike advocacy group.

Have any treasures in your ‘lost & found’?


Jennifer at Covenant Presbyterian displays a t-shirt that arrived in the lost-and-found; after a suitable period if it is not claimed, she’ll donate it to SYM. We’d like our other church and ministry partners to do the same. Our pledge is to find homes for the times. If a staff member lives near you, we will be happy to arrange pickup. Otherwise, we ask that you find a volunteer who might bring them to our Drop-in.

We currently have a need for lots of adult socks. We are now in the season for cooler and colder weather.

If you can give new socks, that would be great. Clean or unstained used socks are fine too!


You might be able to find some deals for $1 a pair for socks?








Please view our dropoff site.

Terry Cole on Making A Difference


Part of An Interview by Lael Weatherby, March 15, 2014

My name’s Terry Cole. I started Street Youth Ministry. People are always asking: What difference does it make? How do you know you’re succeeding? 

It takes a long time to see success in the form that you want to see it, which is somebody completely changing their life. Giving up drugs, getting a house, getting a job, going to school, and making their life really, really good. That’s a long process, and it can be hard to see the progress.

We have activities because you have to do something, but every activity is ministry. Every activity is a chance to show Christ’s love. And so, that’s what we try to do all the time. We have a Tuesday meal that includes bible study and food, and we give out the donated clothing and whatever else has been donated. But we do the food first, and if you want to leave, you can leave. 

And then we talk about the bible, but we don’t force anybody to believe anything. We don’t force anybody to listen. If they want to take a nap or read a book, they can. It’s very compassionate and understanding that maybe they are not in a good place today that they want to participate. But they can stay there, it’s okay with us. 

And then we have stuff at the end, no matter whether you stayed, whether you participated, whether you listened, it’s there. It’s been given to us, and if it will help you, it’s yours.
