Our Model

We transform lives by catalyzing relationships in the image of the Kingdom

Constitutionally, Whatcom Love INC is a partnership of local Christian congregations seeking to support one another in loving our neighbors and serving our communities in the name of Christ. Operationally, this involves two primary aspects: our Call Center, which interfaces directly with people in need on behalf of and in the name of our partner churches, and our Partnership Office, which seeks to optimize our operations, and catalyze community-oriented missional service within our church partnership network.

The Call Center operates Monday through Thursday, from 9 AM to 1 PM. It receives requests for help from pastors, church members, agencies, social workers, or directly from people in need, and works to match those requests with resources available in our partnership network. As such, it also serves as an organ for Love INC for discerning patterns of need within our community to which the Church can respond strategically through “gap ministries.”

The Partnership Office works behind the scenes to develop systems and coordinated strategies within our network for living into the mission of the Church in our local context. We want to see a thriving missional ecosystem in Whatcom county: a Church meaningfully engaged in informed, educated, mobilized, united compassion in our community. We work to assist and amplify the Church in executing its work of supporting and sending every Christian to live into his or her vocation by developing and executing trainings, doing consultations with local missions teams and diaconal staffs, networking with mission-minded leaders in the church, business, government and nonprofit spheres, and hosting parties that bring together people together to dream and to pray about what “Kingdom Come” in our county might look like.
