Uniting Our Community To Help Neighbors in Need

The needs in our community are overwhelming. Have you found yourself wanting to help, but not knowing how? Or not wanting to make a bad situation worse by enabling a cycle of need? That’s where we come in. 

We believe the local church is God’s answer to community brokenness, and a part of His plan of redemption and restoration. That’s why our mission is to mobilize local churches to offer a holistic approach to caring for people in all areas of life: spiritual, emotional, and physical, to transform lives In the Name of Christ!

We have trained compassionate staff and volunteers who listen to the needs of our neighbors and offer them hope and encouragement. And then we reach out to our network of partners to find the help our neighbors need. Not just the material needs, like rent assistance or utility bills. But lasting emotional, social and spiritual help, too.

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 providing financial assistance during a difficult time, or 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, but they often don’t know how to connect with neighbors in need who are seeking those exact skills at that exact time. 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

Driving Forward

If you ever had an opportunity to gain freedom and independence, then you know the feelings of joy and excitement that process often brings. For Carol Miller, what began as a request for assistance turned into a testimony of God’s faithfulness.
