Love INC of Kootenai County
The vision for Love INC of Kootenai County started in the early 2000s. Shane and Rachel Grady witnessed Love INC’s coordination of services, extensive outreach and many service opportunities in Newberg, Oregon. Knowing the strong Christian community in northern Idaho, the generosity and desire to serve others, and the opportunity for greater coordination and unity in these efforts, Shane and Rachel saw a perfect fit for Love INC in Kootenai County. Love In the Name of Christ of Kootenai County officially opened our Connection Center in January 2017.
Over the next few years, Love INC Kootenai County cemented partnerships with 9 churches and nearly 30 volunteers as more and more people caught the vision of mobilizing churches to transform our community for Christ. The biblical holistic helping model “ Redemptive Compassion” serves as the foundation for everything we do, and we have the opportunity to share this curriculum with churches and other helping entities in the community. In 2021 we launched Transformational Ministry - our series of incentivized classes and courses designed to build capacity, relationships, and self-sufficiency in our neighbors. We are excited to continue to expand our Transformational Ministry programs.
