ABOUT AGAPE NRV



As a satellite location of The Agape Center, the Agape Center NRV is a Christ-centered nonprofit outreach ministry whose goal is to attend to the heartfelt needs of those in our local community by the giving of themselves and their resources. In addition to providing the basic necessities of food, diapers, clothing, and more, they also mentor every client and provide spiritual support through prayer and genuine relationships. Their ultimate hope is to help people turn to, or return to a Christ-centered life.

The Agape Center has been functioning out of five separate buildings in FOUR different locations. With the purchase of their new facility, they will be able to bring all of their ministries onto one central campus location. This will also allow them to expand their offerings to the community. Out of their new home they hope to offer more household items, furniture, clothing, as well as several development classes designed to help those in need break the cycle of poverty in their lives. Will you help support their mission and give generously today?


THEIR UNIQUE STORY


To really appreciate what God has done through The Agape Center NRV, it is important to understand how they came about. The Agape Center NVR is a part of a larger network of Agape Centers in Virginia. The first Agape Center was formed in Moneta, VA in 2002. They have grown from a simple food pantry and clothing closet in the basement of one church, into a large multifaceted ministry that serves upwards of 3,000 individuals each month on a campus with more than 27,000 square feet of building space.

The Agape Center NRV began when two local food pantries, a diaper pantry, a clothing bank, and dozens of church and ministry leaders saw it fit to lay down their own titles and ministry names in order to join together under the banner of the Agape Center for the purpose of making an even greater impact in the NRV for the glory of God and his son, Jesus Christ. A local advisory board was established in March of 2020 and in August 2020, the Agape Center NRV opened its humble doors. Since then, the Agape Center NRV has faithfully served the hungry and needy neighbors of our community, growing steadily along the way. They currently have 10 member churches and hundreds of volunteers. Visit www.agapecenternrv.org to find more ways to get involved with all God is doing through this incredible ministry.

In 2020, Agape Center NRV provided $350,000.00 of resources to our community.
