What is L.O.V.E.?
L.O.V.E. is an acronym for local outreach, volunteering, and evangelism, which are the three ways TWU students each week seek to be God's hands of healing in our local community through 14 different outreach opportunities.
Within our program we believe that “outreach is within reach,” which is another way of saying that outreach is both a chance to be change and be changed.
In this way, the phrase “outreach is within reach” is about a transformation that occurs both in our students and in the lives of those we serve each week.
Transformation occurs through us as we bring God’s Kingdom to a broken world: food for the hungry, clothes for the naked, shelter for the homeless, and a voice for the voiceless (Luke 4:18-21). And transformation occurs in us as the justice, mercy, and humility that God’s Kingdom is built upon becomes the foundation for how we view our world and those in it (Micah 6:8; Is. 58:6-9).
So what is L.O.V.E.?
It’s a practical opportunity to serve, an understanding that “outreach is within reach,” and a commitment to a transformation possible only through Jesus Christ.
