MINISTRY TO OUTCASTS AND SHUT-INS
HIS LOVE MINISTRIES began when God placed a burden on one man’s heart. Through just a few verses, the needs of the forgotten showed themselves clearly.
“‘For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” — Matthew 25:35-40
“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” — James 1:27
His Love Ministries is committed to fulfilling these verses.
His Love Ministries gives us our own pastor each Sunday morning, and this is the greatest blessing, as we have all left our homes and our churches for one or more reasons. This helps us keep closer to God. Pastor McKenzie fills a void with his Biblical preaching, his love for people, and his warmth and care for each individual. He arrives early each Sunday, turns the hymn player on, then goes up and down the halls knocking on doors, inviting us all. He also goes into the memory care unit and brings some ladies up, taking them back after our worship service. They love coming. Whether we have 8 or 18, Pastor McKenzie gives us a truly biblical service, praying for any needs. We have gone through the books of John, Ephesians, and Ruth, which were a blessing.

His Love Ministries is a very significant ministry in caring for those individuals who are unable to attend a Bible believing church. Marty McKenzie cares for those who are in prisons, nursing homes and specialized treatment centers. God is using him to provide the real hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ. Our church supports this ministry because we believe through their Bible studies, site visits and church services that they are making a real difference for the kingdom of God.
