My name is Anthony and I am the pastor at Reskill Group Inc. We are a non-profit in the Lynchburg, VA area that is dedicated to helping people in a variety of ways. 1) Ministry, 2) Helping those with PTSD and TBI in a Christian atmosphere.
Who are we?
Great question. We are a lot of things and we are just starting out. Our main goals are to have a ministry that is pleasing to God and helping people. We also want to help people that are suffering with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We want to teach them valuable skills that they can take with them and be able to provide for themselves and/or just have a place they can learn how to deal with their situation a little better, all in a Christian atmosphere.
How do we do this?
We want to, first, start a church that will encompass the Word of God for what it is, truth. We want to create an atmosphere that is conducive for people to learn and grow in their relationships with Christ.
We then want to start incorporating TBI and PTSD clients into our facility and teach them jobs and tasks that will prepare them for the workforce, so that they might be able to provide for themselves and their families.
As I have stated earlier, we are just starting. We were blessed with a building, December 2013, and we have been fixing this building non-stop. God has been in every decision and every step that we are taking. We have been featured on the local news and the local newspaper is doing a comprehensive story on us as well. We have also had a lot of people donate things and money to us as well. We are not short on blessings, we serve a mighty and able God.
At the moment we are fixing the building and once we have insurance, which we are having issues with finding, we are going to start conducting church services at our building. We want to build the ministry aspect of our organization first because it is for God that we are doing this. For this to work we need to give Him praise and teach people about Him. I am confident that this is the first step and things will fall into place after that.
Why am I telling you all of this?
Well I want to have a prayer base, a prayer base as big as I can get. I want people to constantly be praying about what we are doing and prayerfully considering getting involved. Getting involved could include; prayer, donating money, donating things, or volunteering when the time comes. While we need all of these things I urge you to please be praying for us. We need the prayers and we cannot do this without God.
We have a website: http://www.reskillgroupinc.org if you want to check it out. It is a work in progress and I am continually putting things up there to tweak it and make it better and more user friendly. Also look us up on Facebook and Twitter when you get a chance as well.
Please feel free to contact me directly, Anthony@reskillgroupinc.org if you have any questions or want to talk, I am usually available and any prayer requests are definitely accepted. Let me lift up your request to God!
In His Name,
