Description

Unified Service, Multiplied Impact

What is Love INC?

Love In the Name of Christ is a nonprofit organization that trains and unites churches to help people in need. Dignity, education, economic empowerment, and transformation of our clients and then our community, in the name of Christ, is our ultimate goal. Love INC of Brevard is a local affiliate of a national ministry that helps over 1 million people in need nation wide each year through more than 8,600 churches, 9,200 community agencies, and 100,000 volunteers.

How Does Love INC Work?

The heart of Love INC begins in our Clearinghouse Call Center where we receive referrals, assess the need, refer to help and follow up. There we also identify gaps in services and resources in the community, and helps churches develop ministries to fill those gaps. We also provide education and mentorship to our clients as well as our partner and network churches.

Why Love INC?

Love INC enables churches in a community to coordinate their resources and services so that those in need are not turned away and are helped in a healthy manner in their time of need. We have found that the needs of the individuals and families in our community have been addressed in ways that are hurting more than helping. Our call is simple: let's work together to see our communities better. Will you join us on such a mission?

I have been a volunteer at Love INC of Brevard for about a year now. I began as an administrative assistant, but with my accounting background was soon recruited for an open bookkeeping position. After about 6 months I was asked to serve as Director of Operations which has been challenging, but truly a blessing that has brought much spiritual and professional growth. Going to work at the Love INC office is always a blessing - I love the people I work with. There is an all for one mentality that is rare these days and being able to have such a huge impact in my community for Christ is awesome!

The people who work at Love INC truly embrace the mission statement - to mobilize churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ. I have been on staff for a little over a year and started volunteering in 2011. I am amazed at the level of talent and dedication of those involved. In my job as the Labors of Love Coordinator I am in charge of limited scope home repair. I interact with the volunteers and the clients and see first hand the transformation in the lives of both. It is an incredibly moving experience to take the resources God provides and see how helping to make a home more healthy and safe can truly impact a person/family in need far beyond that practical need. If you are looking for a place to invest your time and treasure, I know of no other place where the needs are truly vetted and the dollars are stretched beyond belief to make the greatest possible impact. The integrity of those in charge would have it no other way.

As a volunteer, serving with Love INC became the most personally fulfilling time in my week. The Holy Spirit is alive and moving and to really impact peoples lives for Christ has been so mutually rewarding. I am now on staff as the Director of Programs and I have grown ten fold in my relationship with the Lord and in professional management skills. It is a place like non other that God is using to make a long lasting impact in Brevard county. I'm so grateful on so many levels that God called me to Love In The Name of Christ!

I moved to the Space Coast in August 2011 and at the second church service I attended the pastor talked about this wonderful ministry that helps people in need. After he spoke for a couple of minutes I had the spiritual nudge to join the ministry. That week I attended their 1-hour orientation and I began serving the following week. I am in my third year with this ministry and I can tell you that this is the genuine article. We are a people who care for the needy. We value those in need. We've all been at a point in our lives where we've been in need. This ministry is transformational we've mobilized 47 churches to come together as the One Church and there is something beautiful when Jesus is what brings us together. I am honored to serve with this wonderful group of Christians who not only love our clients but love one another. If you want one of the best ministry experiences of your life then I would serve for Love In the Name of Christ of Brevard. Your life will never be the same!
