Raise awareness of the opportunity to bring God's love and encouragement to 1.4 million nursing home residents in the U.S.
On February 14, 2006, young women from Gracepoint Fellowship Church decided to take a bold step to counter the romantic notion of love by creating a Valentine's Day of Compassion, by forming teams and holding programs at several nearby nursing homes and shelters to share Christ's love.
Inspired by their act of love, the rest of the church joined in extending compassionate care the following year, holding similar programs across the San Francisco Bay Area. Fast forward a decade, what started as a small act of loving service by a handful of brave women on a cold February night has grown to a movement of over 1,700 participants who fan out across 100 locations to share God's love at the annual Valentine's Day of Compassion.
In 2009, Elderly Care Ministry was formed to provide an opportunity to bring God's love directly into nursing homes by holding weekly services and room visitations. Elderly Care Ministry has expanded across 7 major metropolitan areas in four states and serves over 2,000 residents from 27 nursing homes on a weekly basis. Through hundreds of volunteers over the last seven years, over 150 residents have made decisions to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
