Lincoln Village Ministry | Huntsville AL

Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville AL 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.

About Little Linc

The goal of Little Linc is to love children in the name of Christ and train their hearts and minds so they are prepared to serve the Lord and glorify Him with their lives.

The Little Linc began in the fall of 2014 and seeks to improve the educational outcomes of the children of Lincoln Village, as well as those in surrounding areas. Lincoln Village Ministry has invested years in building up this community and its residents. There are many programs in place to benefit the families and help the children become successful, responsible citizens. The preschool is a complementary program, extending the focus on academic excellence and Biblical teaching with a younger group of children.

Each year, God has brought tremendous growth to this program. Currently, there are two classrooms where three and four-year-old students attend school five days a week.  The newest addition is the after-school program where the fun and learning continues into the late afternoon.

It is a joy and privilege to provide young learners with a safe and Christ-centered environment. Through engaging lessons, songs, play, and Montessori-inspired tray work, the children gain valuable knowledge and experience that will provide a foundation for their future years in school.  Little Linc Preschool works with highly motivated parents and caregivers who desire to be the best advocates they can be for their child!

Lincoln Village Ministry greatly enjoys engaging with families at an earlier point and helping to connect them with the many resources available. Research shows that the benefits of attending a high-quality early education program extend to graduation and into adulthood. The impact of an excellent preschool experience is even more profound when considering children from low-income families.
