The Lincoln Community

Beginning Lincoln Village Ministry

In 2002, a man with a heart for the Lincoln Village neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. Just a few miles from the wealthiest of neighbors, this little girl and her mother were surviving with no electricity and no running water. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the need for Christ.

Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community. We invite you to come and see what is going on in Lincoln Village.

Core Values

Passion for God.

Lincoln is committed to ministry which aligns with God’s word, is prayerful and dynamic, and practices the disciplines of the Spirit’s power that arise from an intimate walk with Christ.

Bold, Courageous Faith.

We endeavour to watch where God is at work in our city and seek to be characterized by faith, courage, love and boldness in our witness to the neediest places.

A Culture of Grace and Humility.

Understanding that each person bears the image of God, we endeavor to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual acceptance and respect toward one another. We model healthy relationships with our partners and teams, encouraging each one to attain his or her full potential in Christ.

Servant Leadership.

We seek to serve the working poor in the Lincoln community. We particularly desire to be sensitive to the needs and concerns of the children in our school and families in our community, especially those that are developing and under-resourced.
