At Lord’s Gym lives are changing. From miraculous instant change to change over time. Staff and volunteers, with your support, are making a difference in so many lives.

 

Phillip, for example, spent most of his time drunk. He’d visit Lord’s Gym on occasion, pouring out his heart and asking for prayer. Johnny, a Lord’s Gym volunteer, took an interest in Phillip. Those initial “Hey, how are you” conversations grew into a friendship. Johnny took Phillip under his wing.

 

Things changed drastically.

 

The last several weeks Phillip has shown up sober and is helping clean and organize the Price Hill gym. Phillip has found purpose, friendship, and grace to begin living a different life.

 

Phillip’s life isn’t perfect and he still has his ups and downs, but as Lord’s Gym Price Hill Chaplain Brandon Welch always says: “We’re in it for the long haul.”

 

Lord’s Gym Miniseries is more than a gym. Ministries like the gym, the Family Activity Center and the Street Outreach Ministry (STORM), are building people in our communities up. Together we are growing strong in the Lord.

Just as Paul says in Ephesians 6:10-11 (NKJV): “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God...”

 

God has given us the armor. We just have to make the decision to put it on. At Lord’s Gym we’re helping our friends put on the full armor of God, as well. You, our supporters, are an essential part of this process. Here’s how you can help.

 

1. Pray with us. First Thessolanians 5:17 (KJV) says: "Pray without ceasing." Here’s what you can pray for.

  • Open hearts

  • Protection

  • Boldness

  • Provision

  • Thank God for what He has, is and will do.

 

2. Serve with us. Take some time to mingle and get to know our friends. Mother Teresa said that yesterday’s gone, tomorrow isn’t here yet; so, what are you going to do with today? Why not come to our Price Hill, Queens Gate or Covington locations to learn more about those we are helping. You’ll find it to be a blessing in your life. Click here for more information.

 

3. Share. Tell your friends, family, everyone you know about Lord’s Gym Ministries and how we’re making a difference in people’s lives and even your life.

 

4. Give. At Lord’s Gym Ministries we shower our friends with practical acts of love… spending time with them, giving them food, and a safe place. This is all done with heart of God.

God has blessed us with so many wonderful opportunities and gifts. Luke 12:48 (NKJV) says: “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.”
