When Jesus was on earth 2,000 years ago the streets that he walked became miracle streets. The first Christian Church was born on the streets of Jerusalem as crowds gathered to hear the first evangelists declare a message of freedom, hope and reconciliation. Though opposition from religious leaders was fierce, their success in reaching ordinary people was dramatic. Thousands gave up everything to follow Jesus. This was the DNA of the Miracle Street vision. Steve first used the name Miracle Street on Southampton shopping precinct and it defined his ministry in street preaching in the early years.
