Ralph & Angela Valdes

We are a faith based, 501(c)3, non profit organization.

A collaboration of people who love God and believe according to His word that we're to help the poor, the lost and the hurting. We do not have a building, we are the church in action. 
We help not only the homeless and the hurting but our focus is also ministering to children in vulnerable communities, human trafficking rescue and restore education and disaster relief. 
Our St. Louis outreach teams meet every Monday night helping those that are homeless or in vulnerable communites with food, clothing, blankets, toiletries, etc, encouragement, the Word and other practical resources. 

For Florida outreaches see that page under 'About Us.' And check out our other beautiful ministries. 
We believe that the Word of God changes lives and through our own testimonies we're able to positively influence those we come in contact with and build relationships with those on the streets. 
We believe the great commission, to go into all the world and preach the gospel and that includes our own backyard. 
COTS is here to ignite people out of their church seats and into the streets helping those in need. 

We're impacting and changing lives through serving!
All are welcome!
