Our History

The need for the benevolent work of LAMB Ministries was recognized by Chaplain Hy and Libba McEnery, who were staff members of Child Evangelism Fellowship, New Orleans, in September of 2005.  The devastating effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on impoverished youth and families in the Greater New Orleans area both revealed and created direct needs which were beyond the spiritually focused CEF Mission Statement and ministry capacity.  As commanded in His Word, God’s love demanded action: 

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
  - 1 John 3: 16-18

Children and families lost their homes and even each other.  Many of our CEF ministry youth and their families ended up homeless and without basic necessities after Katrina. They fell drastically behind in school and often times had no food or clothing. God’s love demanded action and LAMB Ministries was transformed to meet the desperate needs of desperate New Orleans inner city youth and their families. The desperate and highly impoverished circumstances of many New Orleans people have continued and will continue. In the vicious cycle of poverty and need in New Orleans, Louisiana, more and more young people come into the ministry influence of LAMB Ministries. It is the Goal of LAMB Ministries, in partnership with local and out-of-state Churches, as well as parachurch ministries, to evangelize and to disciple in God’s Word to those young people and their families and to meet their immediate emergency needs. It is also our goal to reach and disciple adults from the local Business Community.
