In 2016 Restoration formed a partnership with the village of Filo De Mecate in Guatemala. We hope to not only help the village and share the gospel with them, but we hope that we are also radically changed because of this international relationship. Our first project was to help the community build a water filtration and storage system so that the people could have fresh water. In 2018 a team returned to help build a church and a home for the pastor of the village. We have a long term plan through World Help, an international organization to work with the village leaders to plan future projects.

Family Promise

Family Promise is a nonprofit that helps homeless families in the Roanoke Valley. During the day the organization provides job training and long term housing. In the evening, the families stay overnight at a local church. This is where we come in! We not have a church building but we have plenty of people who want to love on others. 

Four times a year we provide dinner and host families at College Lutheran Church for a week. If you are interested in getting involved by hosting or providing food, email


Young Life

Young Life is about three things: Jesus, kids and relationships.  The heart of Young Life’s ministry is found in adult leaders making “contact” with adolescent friends and earning the right to share the good news of Jesus with them.

We care more about expanding the Kingdom of God than about bringing more people to our church, so we have partnered with YL to help fund a staff person to impact all of Salem High School. We also have volunteer leaders in Andrew Lewis Middle School, Glenvar High School, Roanoke College, and leaders who work with Capernaum to love on kids with special needs. 

If you want to volunteer or financially support YL, please email Jeff Lakin at
