Become a Church Partner for the Life Skills Program

Love Your Neighbor’s core ministry, The Life Skills Program, could not function without Church Partners.

Currently, there are FIVE Life Skills Programs happening within churches and schools EVERY week! 

The mission of Life Skills is to be a community where individuals struggling to make ends meet can learn core skills, discover their God-given strengths, and connect with a supportive community through education and peer support. 

Local Church partners support the Life Skills Program in so many critical ways:

  • Weekly program meals
  • Volunteer teachers
  • Weekly food packing
  • Volunteer childcare
  • Facility usage
  • Peer support volunteers
  • Financial support 

A Life Skills Program requires the help of MANY hands and we’d love to partner with your church based on the gifts and passions of your specific church.

Most of the families that participate in the program are not affiliated with a local church and are lacking community. When your church serves here, relationships are built and community is found. 

One of our main Life Skills outcomes for participants is a church community connection – and we cannot do that without YOUR partnership!

Take the Training, Serving With Dignity

Love Your Neighbor’s staff went through a powerful training in 2017 called Serving With Dignity. This was the start of us living into an asset-based approach and elevating the dignity of every person we serve.

Today, Love Your Neighbor is a certified facilitator and offers this training to local church groups and individuals.

Sign up for this biblical training that helps shift service from a project to a life posture.
