Volunteering is special at Love INC. There are so many reasons it’s fulfilling and there are so many ways you can get involved! Volunteer as little as one day a month or as frequently as every day we’re open or anywhere in between, there’s a place for you in our “family.”

To find out more about volunteering, attend one of our upcoming Volunteer Orientations. Attending does not commit you; we’re confident God will lead you where He wants you.

Our next orientations will be held…

Thursday, July 12, 6:00pm – 7:15pm

at Rejoicing Life Church in Broadmoor Plaza in Stuarts Draft (next to our new thrift shoppe, “A Gathering Place. Address: 2857 Stuarts Draft Hwy., Stuarts Draft).

SIGN UP HERE

This brief orientation will involve hearing from those on the frontlines of ministry at Love INC, discovering what makes Love INC different from other charities, and learning about out our core values, core principles, and our philosophy of helping, including the Biblical philosophy of Redemptive Compassion. We guarantee you will be blessed!

Completing this form does not commit you to volunteer for us. We want you to hear more about us and get to know us. We look forward to meeting you!

REDEMPTIVE COMPASSION CLASSES

Redemptive Compassion is a biblical philosophy on how we can offer holistic help to those we serve. It has evolved over fifteen years of working daily with people who find themselves struggling with needs in their life and unable to overcome them on their own. It challenges many current and common ways of addressing need based upon six core principles:

1.    Everyone has value

2.    We are called to invest relationally in each other

3.    Everyone has capacity and potential

4.    Mutual participation is important

5.    We must use wisdom and discernment

6.    What we do should transform

Need will not change until we change how we address need. We are facing critical times in America, and the Church will soon have an unprecedented opportunity to step to the forefront of addressing need. Will we be ready when the time comes? And more importantly, will we understand what God has biblically called us to do when the opportunity arises?

The cost is $15 per person to cover materials. We are accepting registrations for THREE locations, with classes beginning in May!
