No Address: An Interactive Study Guide


A four-session interactive Bible study, based on the documentary Americans with No Address, that examines the biblical response to people experiencing homelessness.

Homelessness is not an “issue”; it’s an opportunity for the church to love our neighbors. In this four-session interactive Bible study, we examine what Scripture has to say on the topic. A companion to the documentary Americans with No Address and the full-length theatrical movie No Address (starring Ashanti, William Baldwin, Beverly D’Angelo, and Xander Berkeley), this study teaches participants:

  • The root causes of different types of homelessness.
  • How to engage rather than enable.
  • The importance of collaboration among existing agencies.
  • How to mobilize their church to follow Jesus’ call to serve.

Each session includes:

  • Facts, true stories, and background about the people who experience homelessness in America.
  • QR code for quick link to online videos.
  • Discussion questions for churches and small groups.
  • Perspective from the Bible.
  • “Go and Do” action steps.
  • Ideas for further resources.
  • Prayer prompts and reflection questions.

The government can’t solve homelessness alone. The nonprofit sector can’t solve it alone. But neighbors loving neighbors, working together, can make a difference for the people who are experiencing homelessness in America. No Address equips Christians to lead the way.
