There are many ways to get involved with LRO today. We do not believe in trying to make God's creations fit into a preformed mold of a volunteer, rather we believe that God has blessed you with a special ability or strength that would bring value to LRO’s life. Let us know how you think you would best be able to serve and we will try and figure out a way to help you shine the Light Of Christ.
Make A Difference.
As the staff of LRO reads through scripture we can see Christ place a high priority on service. Jesus continually served and met the needs of people in all walks of life. We believe that God's people are to follow in Christ’s footsteps in this way. We know that God blesses those who bless others, expecting nothing in return.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
LRO Mentor Program
The men at LRO are in need of mentors. As Jesus sent his disciples out into the wilderness, it was often in pairs. The men at LRO need men to pair with them as they walk the road to restoration.
This could be something as simple as stopping by LRO and eating a meal with a mentee or checking in (in person, via phone, messenger, or text) to see how God is moving and working in his life. Or you could pick him up for an activity of your choice and model for him how a follower of Christ walks out his life in daily activities. Ie. take him fishing, have him help work on a car, woodworking projects etc. Guy Stuff!!! We would like to see a mentor meet with his mentee in person at least once every two weeks.
We ask that you would prayerfully consider mentoring one of the men at LRO and begin helping God change the world one life at a time.
LRO LifeSkills Program
From the beginning of time, God created man to work. We at LRO believe that work is one of the most important steps in the restoration process. Work builds or restores self-worth in the men entrusted to us. Once a week LRO has a “shop day”. Men have the opportunity to head to a shop with staff and get their hands dirty while learning valuable life skills and trades such as changing tires on a car, changing oil, performing general maintenance on vehicles, welding, home improvement/maintenance, and construction/landscape skills. Various projects including building fish houses, working on cars/trucks/boats, yard equipment repair and much more happen throughout the year. It is a goal of LRO Christian Outreach to give the men who come to us skills that can be used throughout a lifetime.
“The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” Genesis 2:15
LRO Men's Support Transportaion
With 20 men in our program, it is difficult to get everyone to appointments on time. If you have a flexible schedule that would allow you to get men to appointments, to jobs, or allow them to take care of business and personal matters, you would bless LRO and then men here more than you could ever imagine
Volunteer opportunities do not end there. We believe that God has blessed you with a special ability or strength that would bring value to life at LRO. You may have a skill or service to share that we are not yet even aware that we need. Rather than attempting to make God’s creation (that’s you!) fit into a predetermined “volunteer mold”, tell us how you think you can help, what you have to share, or how you think you would best be able to serve, and let us prayerfully discern a way to enable you shine the Light Of Christ as you minister to the men at LRO.
LRO Curbside Angels
If you need a hand with a task let us know how we can help serve you. Our Curbside Angels program is a volunteer based mission through which the men of LRO go into the community to meet the needs of people through service. They love to help people move, to do spring and fall clean up, snow removal, and to complete other projects. This is not a staffing agency, but mutual benefits occur as you get the help you need and the men learn new skills and trades as they help and work alongside of you. There is no better way to put it. The men of LRO are Angels. They are Christ's Hands in action.
