President & Founder
Bill Quinn serves as the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Worth and is the founder of Love Never Fails International. For over 30 years he has reached out to the impoverished and hurting children of this world. On September 1, 2004, while preparing an evening sermon the vision for LNFI was birthed in his heart as he read Proverbs 19:17 “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, And He will pay back what he has given”. This Scripture became the foundation on which the charity rests. LNFI aids those in need not only in the continental United States, but other parts of the world as well.
