CONSTRUCTION OPPORTUNITY THROUGH THE ROCK MINISTRY!

Posted by on Jan 20, 2015 in Community Ministry, Construction Projects, Evangelism, Mission Trips | 0 comments

Rock Ministry Cabin

The Rock Ministry

The Rock Ministry was birthed from a burden God gave Terry Hinkle and Donnie Primrose to do something to help people and families who, for whatever the reason, find themselves homeless. In Terry’s words, “We are looking to give people a “hand up” not a “handout.”

God has provided Terry and Donnie with a twelve cabin facility in Troup County (location purposely withheld) to be used for this purpose.  The purpose of this ministry is not to give folks a long term place to stay.  The length of the stay is designed for ninety days, free of charge, during which time the family is given breathing room, so to speak, to get their lives back together.

Terry & Donnie are doing this ministry solely on faith.  Both of these men have other jobs and are financial contributors to the ministry themselves.  And while the cabins are in varying stages of disrepair, they do already have some families staying there.

The need for this ministry is fourfold:

1) Prayer.

2) Provide for the Spiritual needs of the families staying at the facility.

3) Raise financial support for construction materials and operational costs.

4) Recruit volunteer labor to facilitate repairs.

If you would like to be a part of this most worthy ministry, please contact Terry Hinkle at: 706.594.7010 or Donnie Primrose at: 706.442.1253.
