What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Problem: We live in an era where it’s easier to be formed and discipled by our social media feeds than by Jesus. Modern culture can be disorienting and overwhelming. As a result, we struggle to find purpose, our relationships are fractured, we’re disconnected from our neighbors, and we’re confused on how to follow Jesus amidst a rapidly changing culture. How can we reclaim the purpose, relationships, and vision that Jesus invites us to?

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to disciple Christians to serve their neighbors, cultivate healthy relationships and follow Jesus in their culture and context.

Our vision is a community of relationally and culturally competent Christians who walk together in the life and lifestyle of Jesus.

To accomplish this, we run an urban missions program for young adults, as well as provide discipleship content through podcasts, workshops and books for people from all walks of life.

For our urban missions program we attend large conferences geared towards young adults and also travels to colleges across the US to recruit young adults to come and serve. For our discipleship content we currently produce 2 podcasts in house, Bible studies, other discipleship content, workshops and books.

Jesse Eubanks our founder and Executive Director has been doing ministry with young adults since 2005. Our team now consists of 6 full time staff members, 2 part time staff and 2 contracted positions, they help us accomplish all our goals!

In 2005, Jesse Eubanks launched the Hope for Louisville program as a ministry of Jefferson Street Baptist Center (now Louisville Rescue Mission). Hope for Louisville was designed to build relationships with homeless guests and residents in order to bring the presence of Christ and power of the gospel into difficult life circumstances.

Developing on the previous model of Hope for Louisville, Love Thy Neighborhood (LTN) was launched in 2014. In 2014 we started with 4 summer interns and 2 year long interns. To date we have had over 300 interns come and serve with us. And in 2022, are expanding our organization to include discipleship content. We started with just 2 staff members and now have grown to a staff of 8.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
