Mobilizing the Church to Transform Lives in Our Community

The local church is God’s answer to community brokenness and a part of his plan of redemption and restoration. That’s why we mobilize local churches to offer a holistic approach to caring for people in all areas of life: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.

Our Mission + Vision

We mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ because we envision a world where Christian churches are united in purpose and fully engaged in actively living out their faith by lovingly serving people in need in their communities.

Better Together

We help churches help people by developing a network of local churches and connecting them with opportunities to serve their neighbors in need. Sometimes that can look like helping with food, personal needs items, furniture, transportation, or a work project. Other times, it looks like offering educational classes, providing mentorship support, and hosting community events. But it’s always about each church leaning into its strengths and working together with others—because we are better together.

Join Us

In every community, people possess gifts and talents that can be used for ministry, yet they often don’t know how to connect with neighbors who are in need of those skills. Love INC helps churches mobilize their members to reach out to their neighbors in need, by creating specific, manageable opportunities that utilize the unique skills and talents of their congregation to fill unmet needs in the community.
IMPACTING OUR COMMUNITY

Rebecca

I am a family of six, we got into a really rough spot. We were referred to reach out to Love Inc. by a church for the blessing of furniture due to the circumstances we got into. Reaching out to Love Inc. was such a great and pleasant experience with a lovely bunch of people. We were able to get it all done and situated and blessed beyond measure. God is good. We are forever grateful beyond measure.
