Storehouse for Jesus

A Storehouse For Jesus History

In August 1992, the Lord began to lay a burden on the heart of Marie Collins for the needy to have a place to come for help with food and clothing - a place where the gospel of Jesus Christ would be shared. With God’s leading, Marie began "In His Name - A Storehouse For Those In Need" January 12, 1993, at which time the Lord provided a place for the Storehouse to operate on Yadkin Valley Road, in Advance, NC.

The name of the ministry changed to "A Storehouse For Jesus" in May 1994, when the ministry was incorporated. The same year the ministry received its 501(c)3 status.

The ministry outgrew its Advance location and, in September 1995, moved to the old Martin Hardware Building on Depot Street, in Mocksville, NC.

With the increase of clients and the addition of the Medical Ministries, Storehouse outgrew its Depot Street location. In 2003 and 2004, Storehouse purchased 9.76 acres at 675 E. Lexington Rd. (US Highway 64 East) in Mocksville, to build a larger facility. In 2004, construction of a new 27,500 square foot facility began. The ministry moved to its new location in September 2006. The building was paid for in 2008.

In 2009, the property Storehouse surrounded became available. The Board decided to purchase this property, making the Storehouse property a solid block of land by providing continuous road frontage on Hwy. 64, as well as increasing the possibilities of future ministries. The new property was paid for in 2011.

Storehouse is a completely volunteer ministry - no one has ever received a salary. We have been blessed to grow from a volunteer staff of 1 the first 2 years, to currently over 589 volunteers, logging over 54,900 hours of service in 2012. More than 140 of these volunteers logged in over 100 hours each.

All items and services are given freely at Storehouse - nothing is sold and no one is charged for any service.

We are dependent upon God's people for financial donations to operate the ministry.

A Storehouse For Jesus is heavily burdened for those who come through our doors, those who do not know our Lord as Savior, those who are hurting and alone in their struggles. Your support, prayers, labor, financial donations, donations of food, clothing and household items allow us to serve those in need. By all of us working together, we can reach some for Jesus who otherwise might not be reached, sharing the gospel and showing Christ's love.
