WATCH: Megachurch Pastor Goes Homeless to Raise $100,000

Rick Cole may be a megachurch pastor, but his heart is with the homeless. The pastor of Capital Christian Center in Sacramento, California, has vowed to live on the streets for as long as two weeks until he raises $100,000 for a "winter sanctuary" program that offers food and shelter for the homeless.

"Tomorrow, I'm going downtown on light rail; I picked up my light-rail pass today. I've never ridden light rail in my life, not even once, not even for fun, and so that's gonna be my mode of transportation for the next two weeks, and we'll adjust as we go along the way, and we'll communicate to you as we go along the way," Cole said in his Sunday message, which you can watch below.

"That's what I believe God wants me to do and what we're gonna do together. I'd like us just to make our prayer about God's power to touch our city. This idea is not very old, probably about two or three weeks old, and every step along the way it's only gained momentum and excitement," he continued. "My wife even has grown OK with it. That was a miracle all by itself, so we are excited about the many things I think God wants us to do with this particular project and how we can grow and impact this community."
