ESA/Love INC. is making an incredible difference in our community during these difficult economic times. ESA/Love INC. is standing in gap for many needy folks in our community connecting them to resources inside and outside of the church. One of the biggest challenges is trying to figure out how to respond the growing amount of needs in our community which results in the need for more volunteers and financial resources.
I have had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors since 2004. Over that time, I have learned so much about God's heart for the poor and am thrilled by how God has used ESA/Love Inc. in our community to mobilize churches to network together across denominational lines to serve those in need. Love INC has been a great resource to our church in helping us understand our responsibility to love our neighbors as ourselves.
