Encouragement Visits

Schedule a visit just to encourage our team! Local nonprofit ministry workers are local missionaries that serve on the frontlines in Whatcom County. Every day staff faces the heaviness and darkness of poverty, hopelessness and trauma in the lives of those we serve every day. It takes the light of Christ and joy of Holy Spirit burning in our hearts to strengthen us with hope and endurance to share with them. A little encouragement goes along way. We love it when a partner church group comes down to visit our office, meet our staff and volunteers, learn a bit about what ministry looks like that week, and offer some friendly encouragement. Email Shannon@whatcomloveinc.org to schedule a time for your church group to come visit Love INC staff and volunteers.
