who we are …
ABOUT HEALING ON THE STREETS
Healing on the Streets (HOTS) is a very simple and effortless way to reach out to the lost and hurting on the streets, enabling us to connect with a particular community and powerfully express God’s love to those we meet. We simply invite people to sit in the chairs that we provide so we can pray for them. Our part is easy! God does the work, and it's amazing to be able to partner with the Holy Spirit in this way. Overtime we build relationships, connecting the brokenness of our streets with the love of His heart and creating stepping stones for people to come to Jesus and be healed along the way.
JOIN US & DO WHAT JESUS DID
We have seen such tremendous, life-changing encounters with Jesus -- when the Church gets out of the building and onto the streets, when lives and communities get the chance to experience the Kingdom and encounter Jesus the King! We are all called to continue the works of Jesus — to “do what Jesus did” — and we invite you to join us!

our stories …
“… he began to weep.”
“What I saw … was nothing short of a glimpse of God’s Kingdom in our midst … The man [for whom we prayed] was so moved by God’s healing that he began to weep. As he walked away, I was deeply moved by what I’d just seen – a real demonstration of the Kingdom of God and a young man touched by his Father in heaven. Our God is the God who heals!”
“now look what I can do! Praise Jesus!”
“My arm was broken in three places. It was so bad that I couldn’t even move it. I couldn’t bend my elbow or lift my arm at all. But now look what I can do! Praise Jesus!”
– Virginia, waving her arm high above her head with no pain after receiving prayer for healing
“I NEEDED A JOB … AND NOW I’M ON MY WAY TO WORK!”
A woman walked by and stopped to tell us that a couple of weeks ago prior she came for prayer, asking that the Lord would give her a job as she was desperate. She was joyful in telling us that on that day, she was walking on her way to work!
“WE WATCHED THE SWELLING IN HER ARM GO DOWN, RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES!”
“We prayed for a woman from the community whose left arm was badly swollen. As we prayed, we watched the swelling in her arm go down, right in front of our eyes! She said she could feel something happening in her arm. It was amazing! Jesus was healing her literally in front of our eyes!”
— Lizette, HOTS team member
“… all pain and dizziness completely gone!”
“What a profound privilege it was to pray for a woman greatly affected by an inner ear problem which prevented her from doing the most basic of movements — even simply walking slowly — due to severe imbalance and vertigo. And what a tremendous joy it was to watch her eyes open wide as the Holy Spirit touched her, jumping out of the chair and dancing and twirling on the sidewalk, all pain and dizziness completely gone, praising God for the healing that had taken place! But even more — God touched her heart with His love, and she left that day with tears streaming down her face, not only for the physical healing but for her heart’s healing as well. It brought me to tears.”
“MY FATHER IS WALKING!”
“My father is walking! [My uncle] sent me a picture of my father standing! I’m so full of emotion right now. Not only was HOTS awesome but … what God is doing is just AMAZING! My father is in Guatemala, and they prayed for me here in NJ … and he was healed at the same time they prayed over me here! Amen! Thank you, Jesus!”
– Claudia, after her father (in Guatemala!) was healed through prayer after suffering a bad fall from a near-terminal stroke.
“immediately he sprang to his feet …”
“We prayed for a man waiting at a bus stop, sitting with a cane in his hand. He wanted to receive prayer for a blood clot in his leg and was scheduled for surgery. He was in a great deal of pain and could not stand straight. After receiving prayer, he wiggled his foot, smiled, and said: “NO PAIN!” Immediately he sprang to his feet off of the bench and stood completely straight, no cane, with a joy-filled smile on his face! As soon as he received healing, his bus arrived.”

Healing on the Streets (HOTS) is a model of grace and mercy into which God has breathed life, and since its founding by Mark Marx in Coleraine, Northern Ireland in 2005, the HOTS model has been adopted by many churches, spreading around the globe. With the Holy Spirit, we are drawing people into an encounter with Jesus, changing lives and introducing a relationship with God. The North Jersey Vineyard Church is privileged to partner with other HOTS Teams around the world. Come join us!
