Brian Rhoads is changing lives through changing oil as the founder of Lord’s Lubbers. Rhoads began his ministry outreach in Sept. of 2005.
“I was lost, and then I was found and this is what the Lord placed on my heart to do,” he said.
Through the ministry, Rhoads has gone through tens of thousands of quarts of oil, thousands of filters and had a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of area motorists.
“In the last six years, we have reached just under 2,000 people.
Rhoads’ ministry emphasizes compassion and sharing. As such, all services performed by the Lords Lubbers are free.
“It’s whatever people would like to share. It is all by donation. We don’t have pledge drives we don’t go out looking for donations. There is no charge,” he said.
Hesston Community Foundation Director Susan Lamb said the foundation wanted to step in and help the Lord’s Lubbers continue their ministry and service to Hesston residents who may not fit the typical Foundation demographic.
“The Hesston MB Church received $500 for this project. It captured the interest of our board because it was a slightly different need from some of the other requests/projects we funded. This ministry has the ability to reach people who might not benefit from some of our other grant making initiatives,” she said.
Rhoads said the donation will help the Lord’s Lubbers continue to cover the expenses of providing free oil and filters to those in need.
“I really just want to see the ministry continue and prosper. It is God’s will that we help each other. We need to go back to the truth and help each other. We are all one of God’s people,” he said.
