BREAD OF LIFE MINISTRY

BoL_NEW

The Bread of Life Mobile Food Ministry of LNBC is a ministry that delivers free hot meals in our local communities. Since 2011 more than 50,000 hot meals have been prepared and delivered in the name of Jesus.

Bread of Life of LNBC has also been a force in the community for promoting cooperation among area churches and schools. We appreciate the volunteer support and friendship provided by St. Philip Baptist Church, Davidson Presbyterian, Life Fellowship, Southlake Christian School and others.

Volunteers are able to participate in several different ways; shopping and food collection, meal preparation, ministering directly to those in need by delivering meals as part of a team to homes in local communities and going on mission trips where food is used as a powerful tool to spread the Gospel.

New Strength Homes

NewStrengthHomesNew Strength Homes was established to provide “at risk” mothers and their children a structured educational and spiritual program with on-site housing. New Strength Homes offers a Biblical hand-up, not a handout. This is done by speaking truth into their lives and holding them accountable. We are here to teach, train, assist, encourage and give direction so that they may take responsibility for their own lives. We believe it takes a relationship with Jesus Christ to effect real change and we are dedicated to teaching that Jesus Christ is not only Savior, but must be Lord of every part of their lives.
