Board of Directors

Bill Quinn is Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Worth and is the founder of Love Never Fails International.   For most of his almost 30 years in ministry, he has reached out to those in need.   It was on September 1, 2004, while preparing for an evening sermon that he was given the vision for Love Never Fails International.   Based on the scripture, Proverbs 19:17, “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given,” LNF International offers “a hand up, not a hand out” to low income children and families and brings about social, economic and spiritual rebirth through assistance, tutoring and mentoring.   The powerful truth of the scripture led him to the foundation for the charity.   LNF International aids those in need not only in the continental United States but to other parts of the world as well.
