Interested in becoming a Life Skills Partner Church?

Church partners for the Life Skills Program is how the program is able to run. We are a volunteer led organization and with the Life Skills Program at the heart of the ministry. 

Churches support of the Life Skills Program is necessary for the program to function. We seek support from the churches for meals, volunteer teachers, weekly food packing, volunteer childcare, facility usage, peer support volunteers and financial support. 

Having the church champion the program from inside helps LYN recruit volunteers. LYN takes care of all the details and logistics. Our LSP provides a tangible space for those called to serve others and to learn more about themselves to find a place to do just that. 

Most of the families that participate in the program are not affiliated with a local church and are lacking community. Introducing participants to local church members who are serving at the LSP is one of the ways we build community. Relationships are built and community is found. 

One of our main outcomes is a church community connection for the participants of the LSP and we cannot do that without partnership with the local churches.
