About 1 John 3 Ministries …

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:16-18)

309 Cypress street house

We are are very excited about the newest house we have obtained. In October 2015 a very generous local donor gifted the ministry our 309 Cypress street property.  It is very close to being ready for a family.  With the help of volunteers and donors we could have a family in this house by May 2016.

How we find families for our homes

Many people ask how we find families for our homes.  If you know someone who may be in need contact our Ministry Director Jessica Vangsnes for more information on our application process. We have structured requirements for tenants in our houses to meet regularly with our director and be progressing in budgeting and life skills.  We primarily draw from referrals and existing relationships with people in the community.

Why do we do this?

To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.   I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.”
~~ 1 Corinthians 9:22-23
