Hope abides at the Jesus Lifted Ministries Community Center. Administrators Mark and Pamela Lockridge invite the Natchitoches community to join them for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the Chamber of Commerce Thursday, July 13 at 5:30 pm at 99 South Drive, Ste. B. Enjoy a DJ, Johnny’s Pizza and learn about the list of activities the Community Center has to offer (SEE DOCUMENT BELOW).
“Our motto is based on Jesus’ command to love our neighbor as ourselves,” said Pamela. “Community Unity Through Love for One Another: Because love never fails on the mountaintop or in the valley. We all need God’s love.”
Some amenities offered at the center include a wifi cafe with drinks, low-impact exercise and holistic fitness classes, prayer breakfasts, game nights and more.
“I see this Community Center as a bit of light in the community shining out,” said Mark. Pamela said they want to give people something more to do. They offer a distraction from the world where people can get away from social media and actually socialize.
Jesus Lifted Ministries is a nonprofit organization with a goal to connect evangelists from each state in America to form a delegation from around the nation – that will strategically begin a dynamic wave of Spirit-filled evangelism across America. Future goals include building an evangelism conference center in Robeline to refresh and care for God’s leaders as they care for others. The center will have sleeping and dining rooms, a library, prayer rooms, swimming area, RV Park, laundry room and laundry service, fitness center, prayer garden, conference rooms, and more.
Mark and his wife have been married 34 years. They live in the Rocky Mount area near Robeline. They have two children, three grandchildren and one more on the way.
The Lockridges feel that America is presently failing where evangelism is concerned. America needs its’ Ambassadors for Christ to awake and see the dire need of evangelism that will only come through strategic intercession and cheerful giving.
The Community Center is open Monday-Saturday from 7-11 am and 1-4 pm. The hours of 11 am – 1 pm are reserved for support group meetings. Volunteers and board members are needed and donations are welcome. For more information call 318-413-1874, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go online to http://www.jesusliftedministries.com.
