Love INC of Kootenai County
Love In the Name of Christ of Kootenai County officially opened the Connection Center in January 2017, with our partner churches and countless volunteer hours. The vision for Love INC of Kootenai County started way back in the early 2000s when Shane and Rachel Grady were involved in a church in Newberg, Oregon that was launching their own Love In the Name of Christ. After seeing the amazing coordination of services, extensive outreach and many service opportunities in Newberg, Shane and Rachel knew this would be a huge benefit to Kootenai County.
Over the course of years an ever larger group of volunteers caught the vision of mobilizing churches to transform communities for Christ. In coordination with Love INC of Treasure Valley "Redemptive Compassion" curriculum was taught and shared through many platforms as we worked together to create a vision for serving those in need without harming. Today we continue to share the curriculum of Redemptive Compassion and training for all volunteers and partner churches.
