Our Story

Joe and Kris Jordan founded the work of Jordan Outreach Ministries International in 1997. As the son of the late Fred Jordan, founder of Fred Jordan Missions on Los Angeles’ Skid Row, Joe grew up understanding the needs of homeless and underprivileged men, women, and children.

Joe was ordained after completing his formal education in Pastoral Ministries, Counseling, and Theology. During their time on Skid Row, Joe and Kris felt a strong pull back to the Coachella Valley but patiently waited on God’s timing to make it a reality.

That reality came in 1997. After serving as Fred Jordan Missions’ Executive Director/Vice President for over ten years, Joe resigned and he and Kris moved to the Coachella Valley to begin what is now Jordan Outreach Ministries.

In the fall of 1997, Jordan Outreach Ministries began under the umbrella of Fred Jordan Missions as Fred Jordan Missions-Coachella Valley. In 2001, Fred Jordan Missions-Coachella Valley moved out from under the umbrella of Fred Jordan Missions and became Jordan Outreach Ministries, an independent, Christian, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

Blessed with two beautiful children, Joe and Kris continue to work hand-in-hand declaring and demonstrating the love of Jesus to the Coachella Valley’s impoverished families and at-risk children and youth.
