Be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Go to people in need.

Demonstrate God's love.

Declare the Gospel.

Grow in Christ.

Where people grow strong in the Lord.


“I’m grateful for this ministry. It was here I could get the positive reassurance that life is better without drugs and alcohol. And, it’s possible to have that life with the Lord Jesus.” — Robert Young, Gym Member

Lord’s Gym Ministries, borne of the Foundation of Compassionate American Samaritans (FOCAS), began in 1993 serving in the urban core of Greater Cincinnati transforming lives and seeing people grow strong in the Lord (Ephesians 6:10).

We work on a very spartan budget, limited processes, a no-frills environment, and high financial accountability standards. We have been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability or ECFA since 2002.
