Every minute of every day, someone
needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a
person like you who makes the choice to donate. When you make a
blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out
of every 100 people in America donate blood. From its beginning,
Life South has formed a community of service, of generous, strong
and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves.

The Regeneration Program at No Longer Bound is a 10-month,
in-patient process of recovery. NLB is NOT a rehabilitation
program. By definition, rehabilitation is defined as "to restore to
a former state". At NLB, we believe that the former state of a
person before arrival at NLB was filled with hurt, pain, and
disappointment. Instead, we have intentionally adopted the word
regeneration. Regeneration is "a radical change for the better". At
NLB, we believe that each person who comes here for ministry will
have an encounter with Jesus Christ that will lead to a radical
change for the better. This change leads to an eternal freedom from
the bondage of drug and alcohol addiction, hurt, and pain.

|Rivers of the
Rivers of The World is a
not-for-profit Christian ministry that targets remote river basins.
Our goal is to serve with people who live in these river basins and
those we serve determine our projects. We ask them what makes up
their greatest challenges and covenant with them to meet and
overcome those challenges together. ROW emphasizes that it is their
country, their village, their culture, but our problem. Our goal is
to serve in an atmosphere of mutual concern and respect. ROW
projects run the gamut of human, physical and spiritual needs.
Academics, research, education and medical/dental concerns go hand
in hand with church planting, construction, evangelism and Bible
distribution. Volunteers are welcomed to assist in the
implementation of ROW mission projects. JCPC has been involved with
ROW for many years, going on mission trips to Belize, Brazil,
Honduras, and the Dominican Republic.
