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. Listening is a way of life. Listening to God, for God's words of wisdom and knowledge; and listening to our guests. We do not enable, but rather share with our guests through prayer, counsel, and life skills. God has freely given to us through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, therefore we freely give.

No one receives a salary though a modest housing allowance is provided for the volunteer pastor. Counseling is available by appointment. Walk-ins are also served as needed. Group guitar lessons are offered for those called to lead worship.

In faith that works through love, we trust in Jesus to provide all needs: spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, practical, and financial.

We continue to trust Jesus to provide "skilled workers" for the Harvest. 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.

For decades, we've followed Jesus into the environment of the "ones" He lead us to serve. It is such a joy welcoming them into the ministry house.

By the grace of God, on 5/20/2020, we purchased a 1320 sq. ft. building on the highway. We did 9 months of renovations on the building before opening 3/8/2020. The landscaping for the organic garden, fruit trees, grapes, etc. is the next phase of this project. It truly is His dream ... we are blessed to be a part of it.

The leadership class at the local middle school organized a "can drive" last Thanksgiving, donating it all to our pantry. They plan to do this each year! The court sent us our first "community service worker" who served 55 hours with us. She continues with us in prayer and counsel. As our guests begin to grow in life skills, we help them transition to the local church.

The fuel for The Ministry House, which was originally a "service station" aka a "filling 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
