We exist to serve and glorify God through Christ-centered ministry that meets the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hurting people in the greater Lexington area.

Every day, we see people struggling to survive. People who are hungry. People who are homeless. People who are incarcerated. People who are on the brink of losing everything. Starting with practical assistance, we get to know our guests. We get to know their stories, their struggles, and their pain. And we offer hope.

We encourage them. We pray with them. We counsel them. And we offer the help they need - food for the hungry, transitional housing for men who homeless, training and mentorship for those in jail, and financial assistance for families on the brink of eviction or utility shut-off.

Most importantly, we invite people into the presence of Jesus, who promises true rest for all who are weary and heavy-laden. Through Him, lives are transformed…today and for eternity.
