It’s an amazing thing to be part of a strong family. A good family provides support, love, and care, holding on to us when we are going through the crazy times of life. Unfortunately there are far too many people in this world, even in our own neighborhood, who lack someone who loves and cares for them unconditionally. That means in their moment of need, they are alone.
We can change that. We can be that family member, that friend, that neighbor who shows unconditional love. A Few Good Men exists to build relationships between the needy and the neighbors who want to meet their needs. We are calling men and women to be a friend to the lonely, a defender for the weak.
Community Outreach Reaching the Defenseless (C.O.R.D.) is our initiative to make that happen. As our follow up ministry, C.O.R.D. connects those in need with a friend from a local church.
There are two kinds of C.O.R.D. relationships: The Friend and The Coach. The Friend will provide support, companionship, and protection to those who are legitimately vulnerable for reasons of disability or age. The Coach will help the down-and-out get back on their feet. He will guide his new friend through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University curriculum, providing accountability, inspiration and wisdom along the way.
Ultimately, we want those we are serving to find the one true Need Meeter, Jesus Christ. We want every relationship to be oriented toward that end. Meeting physical needs is important but pointing toward answers to our deeper questions of brokenness is even more critical.
Let’s rebuild our community on the basis of unconditional love. Please consider helping us do it by joining A Few Good Men’s C.O.R.D. Initiative. This is a big vision but it is one that is achievable. It is build on the foundation of love, and love never fails.
