Ep28. Eric Flynn. The HOPE Program.

Eric Flynn is instrumental in a unique community outreach known as “H.O.P.E.” (Hands Out Providing Encouragement.) For the last 8 years, members of Violet Baptist Church in Pickerington, Ohio have been been working in partnership with the local school district to provide meals for students over the weekend.  They are now providing 6 meals every week to students in every one of the 14 schools in the district from Kindergarten through grade 12. Eric shares how this program has opened doors in the community and led to even more opportunities for the church to serve their neighbors and share the love of Christ.
