CBC 40 Man Challenge

We still need 40 men to sign up as overnight hosts for Room in the Inn.  If we can do this, then every night November 4th through March 31st will be covered and we will not have to burden anyone to stay more than one night.  This is an opportunity for our men to share in the gift of hospitality. Brian Varble will have a sign up sheet on Wednesday night and Sunday. Feel free to contact Brian via email or at (859) 327-9984 .

When someone experiences hospitality and safety and a feeling of belonging, they experience sanctuary.  -- Charles Strobel, founding director, RITI Nashville

ROOM IN THE INN Lexington’s ministry was born over 10 years ago in response to a cease-and-desist order issued by the LFUCG against a local church who began offering food and shelter in their basement during the coldest nights of the winter. In response to the City’s action, we formed a small delegation that traveled to Nashville to evaluate the ROOM IN THE INN NASHVILLE ministry. The Nashville ministry began in 1986 under the leadership of Father Charles Stroble, with 4 churches. It is now Nashville’s second largest shelter with over 200 host congregations participating. 

Each fall, homeless men from the Lexington area are invited to apply to participate in our ministry. Applicants are screened and 24 men are invited to attend. The men are divided into two groups, which are dispatched each night from a central downtown location to participating congregations by an Innkeeper. Participating congregations pick up the guests and transport them to their facilities, where they are greeted with a warm meal and a safe place to sleep for the evening. The following morning, guests receive breakfast and are transported back downtown. Through this process, relationships are formed and lives are changed – not just the guests, everyone involved! http://www.ritilex.org/
