Story of Hope

William’s Story

One of our clients contacted us discouraged and depressed.  He was in a very difficult place with health problems, loss of employment and mounting financial problems.  He was in need of rent and medical help.  We were able to refer him to the Stephen Ministry at one of our partner churches and he was helped with his medical needs.  We were able to give him several job resources, and through his diligence, he was able to find employment. 

Two of our partner churches were able to help with his delinquent rent, which put him in a better place financially.  Through our follow-up process, we learned that the Stephen Ministry was instrumental in helping with his isolation and depression.   He is happily employed and is very thankful for our help.

Our Purpose

Love In the Name of Christ of North Oakland County is a Christian ministry that links partner churches, volunteers, and community partners to bring about transformation in the lives of our neighbors in need. More than a hand-out, We offer a hand-up!

The focus of our Life Skills classes is to provide individuals support, learning opportunities and accountability through mentor relationships that instill dignity, help them see their own value and give them hope.

Love INC is designed as a network of pastors and churches that work together to meet critical needs. United in purpose, resources and volunteers are shared to better serve our community.

“The church must be the hope of the world”

– Virgil Gulker, Founder of Love INC
