Mission

On February 20, 2015, Open Hearts Community Mission broke ground on its 30-bed mission. The mission property is located behind the Post Office and the old Wearhouse building at 39 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in Statesboro. Currently, the site is being prepped for site and civil work.

We hired Jim Lewis a full time director to professionally manage the organization and the facility. He is a Christ-centered individual with a strong background in management of mission-drive mission who will provide the loving care and Christian guidance needed by those we serve. He will direct the efforts of a resident manager and volunteers to provide services in our community.

Having a mission will allow us to fulfill the entire mission of Open Hearts Community Mission by helping to restore people to full and productive lives and sharing with them the love of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to help those who are willing to make the effort to set and achieve life goals that will move them from their situation to one of self-sufficiency.

Residents will share responsibilities for making meals and cleaning the mission. Additionally, they will participate in financial management classes and Bible study groups. For those who need assistance, we will guide them to the appropriate social service agencies for employment, healthcare, and financial aid services.
