Our Story

The vision of reaching to the community of Gainesville through a thrift store ministry has been taking place over the last several months. Our leader and pastor, Gary Huff has always had a heart for serving the community and equipping his congregation to serve. Our inspiration began with The Edge Nazarene church and thrift store in Decatur, Georgia, but quickly grew and changed to meet the specifics of our own community. We have a team of 20-30 people who have committed to participating in bringing this ministry into existence.  In the process of stocking and equipping the space, we have been blessed to have received several large gifts from individuals and other businesses. God has been so generous to these efforts so far and we are so looking forward to seeing what the future holds.

Our Vision

Nothing Wasted Thrift  exists…

• to provide quality used items that people need, at reasonable prices.

• to be a safe place where everyone is heard and valued.

• to show and be shown the love of God.

• to provide opportunities for people to grow.

Every donor, host, or guest is significant to this being the place God has called it to be.
