Love INC Heart of Florida

Mobilizing local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ, Love In the Name of Christ is a volunteer based proven model that brings local churches, church volunteers, and community organizations together to respond to needs in our community. Our core values, rooted in our Christian faith and the holistic, Biblically-based principles of Redemptive Compassion, are designed to strengthen the faith of both our volunteers and the people we serve so together we become a living sign of our Lord’s love and compassion. Love INC volunteers enter into a relationship with their neighbors in need, not just responding with transactional charity to a crisis or need, but responding in developmental compassion and mutual support. The relationships developed through the Love INC ministry create “Love Stories” for both our volunteers and neighbors in need. We believe that lives are transformed when we deepen our faith and find mutuality in these relationships. Love INC transforms our community through personal actions and social justice advocacy taken by our committed volunteers.
