The Ministry House
Coming soon! Lord willing, we hope to open by November 1, 2019.
The theme of the ministry house is:
Replenishing* lives through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
We are not a church, but a gathering place for Prayer, Counseling, Pantry, and a future Organic Garden, including vegetables, fruit trees, and hopefully, Thompson Seedless Grapes - all to share with those in need. As Jesus provides, and opens doors, we also hope to offer services via a mobile pantry for those who are housebound.
We do not charge for our services as the people we've been called to serve generally have very little. Some are homeless. We do not enable, but rather look forward to sharing with our guests, the life skills God has freely given to us through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We hope to open 3 days a week: Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday from Noon to 3 p.m. No one receives a salary. In faith that works through love, we trust in Jesus to provide all needs: spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, practical, and financial.
We've been trusting Jesus to provide "skilled workers" for the Harvest, volunteers He has chosen: 4 teams, one for each week, so that no one gets burned out.
We endeavor to reach out to the schools seeking those interested in volunteerism, especially social services, and gardening. We also seek to work with the court for those who may need to perform "community service."
decades, we've followed Jesus into the environment of the "ones" He leads us to serve. Now it is a
joy to be able to welcome them into a ministry house.
the grace of God, we purchased a
1320 sq. ft. building on 1/3 acre right on the highway, easy access for those who depend
on the county transit system.
As the Lord provides, we are doing
renovations on the building. The landscaping for the organic garden, fruit trees, grapes, etc. will be the most expensive part of this vision. It truly is His dream ... we are blessed to be a part of
As we progress, we pray God will lead medical professionals to volunteer a few hours a month. We are hoping the VFW will send out a rep to help a few hours a month as well.
The fuel for the ministry house, which was originally a "service station" is prayer and worship. For decades, the Nlwm prayer team has been standing in the gap for such a time as this. The time is now! Jesus loves to come at the darkest hour, even when all hope is gone, He will heal what is broken and resurrect what has died! All to the glory of God our Father, in Jesus name, Amen!
John 12:32-33 Jesus
said, “The voice didn’t come for me but for you. At this moment the
world is in crisis. Now Satan, the ruler of this world, will be thrown
out. And I, as I am lifted up from the earth, will attract everyone to
me and gather them around me.”MSG
