GAP Ministries help Tri-County Love INC fulfill their mission to mobilize the Church to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ.  These ministries meet needs that are not currently or sufficiently being met by agencies, government entities, or churches.

Each ministry fills a “gap” in community services by focusing on a particular need.  For more information, please contact Love INC at (541) 889-7860 ext. 6, or ext. 4 to donate. Below is list of the GAP ministries.
