Fellow Gospel Coalition Church in Albuquerque Serves Love INC.

2013 | by Clint | Category: Local,Love INC,Mission Opportunity

Since we share so much in common theologically and in ministry philosophy with The Gospel Coalition, it is great to hear and see when God moves our sister churches and us toward similar ministries.  One of these strategic local missions partners is Love INC.  Love INC will have a table at our ministry fair this coming Sunday, please look for them and look for ways to get plugged in LOVE(ing) our city In the Name of Christ (INC).

 

From Love INC’s recent enewsletter:

One of the most important parts of Love INC’s screening process is the home visit.  It is an opportunity to make sure the needs are legitimate, identify unspoken needs, pray for families, and of above all…share the Gospel.  Last fall, Hope Evangelical Free piloted a project for us.   One of their classes (approximately 15 people) became trained to do home visits.  Every Saturday morning, the group met at the church for prayer and coffee, and volunteers would pick up the information packets (made by Love INC volunteers) to go visit families.  (The volunteers went in groups of 2).  It was AMAZING!

Our vision is that more churches will adopt this as their outreach program, and there will be churches throughout Albuquerque sharing the gospel with families near their church.  This is a great opportunity for churches with limited space, but still desire to be intentional about outreach opportunities for their congregation.  Please let us know if this is something you would be interested in starting at your church.  Love INC will provide all the training, materials, and background checks on all volunteers visiting homes.

Thanks and God Bless,

Sara Money,

Executive Director

“Helping Churches Help People”

Here is what the Love INC model looks like in graphical form:

As a church leadership, we here at DSC are very interested in seeing more of our folks connect with Love INC and serve the city through them.  We get several phone calls or walk-ins per month asking for material help.  We talk with them, listen to their story, pray with them, and share a bit of Bible truth before we recommend they seek help through Love INC’s clearinghouse ministry.

Watch for the Love INC table at this Sundays ministry fair in the youth room or email us at local@desertspringschurch.org.
