Broad Street Ministry (BSM) was established in 2005 when a team of visionaries, led by Convening Minister and Founder, Rev. Bill Golderer, opened Broad Street Ministry in the historic Chambers-Wylie Presbyterian Church in order to create a space that would inspire, nourish, and welcome people from all walks of life. With seed funding from several local churches, Broad Street Ministry was created as a broad-minded faith community with a mission to foster creativity, extend inclusive hospitality, and work for a more just world through civic engagement. Over time the mission evolved to include serving Philadelphians living in deep poverty who are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity. To that end, BSM began serving a Thursday meal in 2008.
