Become A Partner Church

How can we change the current system of care for people who are sustained in need that become more dependent on others and feel as if they have nothing to contribute?

 

“Relationships transform lives. Love INC trains your church’s volunteers to be resource coordinators to link validated resources with qualified parishioners and area neighbors in need. This faith journey creates ‘love stories’ – donor, recipient and your faith community being transformed. Joy becomes our shared reality.” – Love INC of Metro Tampa

 

The church has a prophetic calling to be the hands and feet of Christ to those in spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, and material need. When churches serve people in communities, they in effect put God on display within that community, showcasing God’s loving and redemptive nature. It is Love INC’s mission to help the church live out this life transforming, community transforming calling.

 

Mobilizing Christian faith communities can be complex: too often people do not know how to contribute their gifts, skills and talents in meaningful ways. Our challenge: creating meaningful, manageable volunteer opportunities. Mobilized, volunteer, trained, resource navigators are the heart of every Love INC. Volunteers are engaged with safe meaningful, appropriate and manageable opportunities. With Love INC, everyone has a part and every part makes a difference in building his Tampa kingdom.

 

Love INC defining differences? Our focus is on prevention and discerning manageable reasonable requests; keeping housing insecure people housed and secondarily, those newly homeless – less than six months. Love INC is not an emergency resource, cannot provide money for financial needs and has no walk ins.  Our experience, based on 30+ years and over 200 affiliates – charity, including handouts, focused on a person’s needs rarely transforms. However, services focused on the person, delivered with accountability and love, in the Name of Christ, can transform volunteer, person being empowered as well as our larger community.

We welcome your interest, participation and opportunity to serve – to ‘love on’ your church.

Our three-year love story, personally and communally, started in 2013 with being frustrated with both a lack of and knowledge of Tampa resources for helping neighbors in need. Also, how our broken safety net resource systems were further traumatizing our guests in need.

 

We were introduced to Love INC (in the Name of Christ), an affiliate ministry existing solely to help Christian churches build mission capacity to help more people. Its mission – mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities in the Name of Christ.

 

The processes we witnessed were intentionally relational; seeking every potential opportunity to love on their guests; matching their needs with validated community resources. Prayer is central to every Love INC activity and guest interfacing.
