Immanuel is working with Love, INC in piloting a new initiative in the Charlottesville area called “Transformational Ministry.” For years, Love, INC has been doing great work in our community helping to fill immediate needs and we have been part of that work (e.g., Immanuel’s Closet). This new ministry looks deeper toward the long-term transformation of lives in Christ.

Through a series of courses and coordinated mentoring, program participants are led to see their value in Jesus and their God-given potentials while being equipped with basic knowledge and skills to help them break free from cycles of poverty and generational need. While new to Charlottesville, this ministry has been implemented in other Love, INC chapters around the country. Hundreds of families have seen their outlooks renewed and their lives changed forever!

This is where your help is needed. The heart of the program is the personal investment made in program participants as they make their way through a series of 12-13 week courses on things like seeing themselves in Christ (the first course), financial management, and health and wellness. Mentors attend the 1-2 hours sessions with their mentees and walk alongside them through the process. Might you consider serving as a mentor (for a single course or more)? Or even as a course instructor (comprehensive course materials provided)?

If you are someone who wants to be a part of and see God making a real, discernible, and lasting difference in someone’s life, this is your chance! For more information, contact me.

Peace in Jesus,

Pastor Ben
