Relational Ministry has really improved my feelings for human kind. I am so grateful.

…mobilize The Church to transform lives…

The Love INC Relational Ministry program is one of the most powerful aspects of fulfilling our mission.  Clients and mentors attend class together and then spend 45 minutes in one-on-one mentoring.

“Because every one of us is suffering from brokenness in our foundational relationships, all of us need ‘poverty alleviation,’ just in different ways. Our perspective should be less about how we are going to fix the materially poor and more about how we can walk together, asking God to fix both of us.”
– When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett

BENEFITS:

  • Clients have paid off over $60,000 of debt in the first four years of the program

Mentor Application

RMChildcare

So many of our client’s children just need one person to tell them they are special and loved.  That person could be you!
Our clients are blessed with one night a week to have free childcare and learn valuable life skills through Relational Ministry. We need your help to make sure their children have a great experience at the same time.

How you can help

You would be working with grade school aged children with curriculum written to coincide with their parent’s lessons.  You would play, color, run, and talk with them.  You might find that you are having more fun than the kids!

This is a once a week commitment (every Thursday) from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
