Advancing His Kingdom

Lincoln Village Ministry began 17 years ago with the purpose to purchase and renovate Lincoln Village houses to redeem and restore a neighborhood which – once thriving – had fallen into disrepair. The goal was to provide safe, affordable housing to Lincoln Village residents while sharing the transforming power of the Gospel of Christ. Seventeen years later, the Lincoln neighborhood is a place of peace.
Now, Lincoln Village Ministry is advancing God’s Kingdom on three streets just to the north of Lincoln Academy across Oakwood Avenue (“Lincoln North”). The past has become present again and hopelessness, fear, and despair prevail in the lives of those we are meeting. We are thrilled to announce Lincoln Village Ministry recently secured funds and purchased 33 housing units in Lincoln North. Praise God! The next step is to renovate the homes, providing additional safe and affordable housing for families in the community.

We Need You

Now the hard work begins, and we need you! There are three main ways you can help

  • Make a donation: The renovation process costs approximately $60,000 per unit, bringing the total funding needed to renovate all 33 housing units to $1,980,000. It’s a big goal, but we serve a big God!
  • Volunteer: The bulk of our home renovations are done by volunteers. Come alone or grab some friends, your small group, your business, etc. and join the fun as we turn these houses into homes! Contact Emily  Fox at 256.701.4303 for more info on volunteering!
  • Pray: Please pray the Lord will raise up funding and laborers for the renovation process. Pray for the families who will make these houses their home. Pray for the Lincoln Village Ministry staff as we embark on new territory. Pray for Him to be glorified in all we do!

Violence will not be heard again in your land, Nor devastation or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise. – Isaiah 60:18

Lincoln Village Ministry | Huntsville AL

Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. 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.
