News and Updates
Exciting changes in the Works!

The ministry has experienced God's leading over the last few months, including strategic planning and staff changes.

Last year, Neale returned to the software business, leaving a need for someone to take the ministry to the next level. Harvey Anderson, after leaving Perimeter Church staff in February, has begun raising support and joined HRM in May (see articles below).

The Lord's hand is evident in the events leading to Harvey's arrival at HRM. He brings skills for helping us realize our strategy of deeply connecting churches with HRM and UNITE!.

Nailing Things Down
Upcoming Project Information

The following projects are planned and need volunteers. Check the website for updates: Miter Saw

HRM is actively working toward an improved database tool accessible via the web and useable by multiple churches. This is a key piece for HRM's growth. If you are a developer and have some time to either to help us plan or actually work on this project, please contact us. The ministry can invest some resources to make this change.

You can help through prayer, financial support, and volunteering. Let us know how.

Harvey Anderson Joins HRM Full-Time

Harvey Anderson is no stranger to HRM. He co-founded the Home Repairs Team at Perimeter Church in 2003, out of which HRM, Inc. would grow in 2005. HarveyHarvey comes with over 16 years experience in mercy ministry, including 12 years in inner-city ministry with PMI where he often led repair projects.

If that wasn't enough, Harvey spent the last 4 years working with UNITE! and connecting Atlanta churches by networking them through UNITE! events and serving projects. This gives him a wide base of churches to engage for serving their communities through home repairs.

Anyone who knows Harvey knows that he is passionate for mobilizing the People of God to serve their communities. As always, the Lord is on time, sending him to HRM as we focus on growth and replication in the coming year.

Join me in welcoming Harvey. See his article below on what he's doing.

Where Do We Go From Here?
First Steps

Hi, friends. Thanks for the way you have supported this ministry. It is great to be part of what God is doing through HRM.

We are currently meeting with church leaders and potential leaders of home repairs ministries in their churches. Our vision is to provide referrals to known projects in the community (answering the question: "Where do we get projects?") and helping them organize and schedule their own projects.

Once a church begins ministering with tools, we can begin to connect them with other churches. This helps knit the Body together to have greater impact on the community.

Please pray for good success in fundraising for my own salary package, finding the "right person" in each church, and keeping the Gospel of Jesus front and center of all that we do.
