DREAM OF DESTINY

Dream of Destiny is a ministry that empowers leaders to cultivate unity and diversity in the church. We help pastors and ministry leaders build and embed an organizational culture that reflects heaven here on earth — a mosaic tapestry of people from various races, nationalities, socio-economic backgrounds, and experiences that are united before God and share a common purpose. (Rev. 7:9-10) Dream of Destiny offers two pillars of support to help leaders navigate through this rewarding but oftentimes complex landscape: 1. Resources and a network of subject matter experts skilled in diversity training, strategy, execution, and engagement. 2. Communications support to help churches share the Jesus story cross-culturally and reach urban populations within their local community.

ENGLISH AND COFFEE

Church members volunteer as "tutors" to help our international friends practice conversational English in a one-on-one setting using materials based on the Bible. It is a fun way to meet new people, learn more about cultures around the world, and share your own experiences with God. If you know someone who could benefit from the program, or if you would like to know more about becoming a volunteer tutor, please contact us!

FREEDOM ARISE (Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry) 

Freedom Arise is a new ministry birthed from Shepherd's passion to see the end of slavery in our lifetime.

As a ministry, we are committed to prayer, raising awareness, prevention, and growing the movement to end human trafficking. If you want to be a voice for justice, we have so many opportunities for you to get involved!
