Life House isn’t your typical ministry. In so many ministries they are blessed with paid staff and plenty of tithers to keep the work going. While that is a HUGE BLESSING for them – our ministry is different in a couple of ways.
- We are dependent on volunteers. We don’t have the finances available to hire part-time/full-time staff members. While we might look forward to the day we can, presently that doesn’t seem to be the avenue that we were given to “do” this ministry. We are dependent on volunteers. WE ARE THANKFUL for every person that serves in/through Life House. From the folks that clean the building, keep the yard, cook, unload food, work at God’s Closet, drive the vans, work in the youth, children, music, teaching, after school program and many more areas to numerous to name – all are volunteers! We are thankful for those who serve faithfully and do so FOR HIM.
- We are dependent on our Partners to help keep this ministry growing and going. We are so blessed to have several churches and a few individuals that believe in this mission and faithfully give monthly from their budgets and heart to help support Life House. THANK YOU (You know who you are!). Without churches and people with a heart for loving, feeding, clothing and helping others we couldn’t make it as a ministry. We have one church that has been faithful from the very first day of the start of the ministry here to send a sizeable monthly gift. They have been faithful for 8 years! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of our Partners!
- This ministry also is blessed by churches, groups and others who come to do a “mission trip” at Life House. We have had countless youth groups, college groups, church groups and even individuals come through the years (usually several groups per year) and spend a weekend, several days or even a week @ Life House ON MISSION. WE LOVE MISSION GROUPS! Thank you to all who have come through the years and helped us! You are a blessing to the work here! (IF YOUR CHURCH or GROUP is looking for a place to do a “MISSION TRIP” we hope you will consider Life House! Call me for more info!)
This entire blog is to say THANK YOU for all who volunteer, give and support this ministry in ANY WAY. From coming to “do” a mission trip, volunteering every week, giving financially or even giving “stuff” to keep God’s Closet running —– THANK YOU! MOST OF ALL THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR ME, MY FAMILY AND THIS WORK.
You are helping us love on, feed, clothe and share Jesus with those in our city that need Jesus. THANKS AGAIN! PASTOR JAMES
