God's Precious People

God’s Precious People (GPP) is a Outreach Ministry founded by Lawrence G. Norman in 2008 that serves the poor & homeless. GPP is a team of individuals that have a heart to help the homeless and the poor.

We sponsor and distribute care/hygiene packages, water, clothing and Bibles throughout the streets and under the bridges and underpasses of Dallas. We collaborate and serve along side other organizations at various missions, shelters and events for the homeless.
