DESIRE TO REVITALIZE
Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see it.
Our ministry leader partners, and the neighbors they love and serve alongside face some of the toughest challenges in the United States today: concentrated poverty, failing schools, unsafe streets, deteriorated housing, high unemployment, inadequate health care. These under-resourced neighborhoods are “home” to the communities who live there.
Desire Street seeks to revitalize neighborhoods like these, by helping leaders thrive. Our vision is to create a better future for the kids and families who live there, so that one day every neighborhood will be a more desirable place to live.
We use a partnership approach to effectively and efficiently impact more neighborhoods than our small staff could ever reach alone. That means we use our collective personal and organization experience, education and gifts to walk with leaders…coaching and caring for them as they navigate the waters of ministry in their own communities. Each has different dreams, needs, goals, and histories where God was at work long before we showed up.
As each transformation story unfolds, God changes everyone involved. The road to revitalization is definitely a marathon, not a sprint, and we are all walking it together. Will you come along with us as we walk the intersection of lives, leaders and neighborhoods?

DESIRE TO REACH
WHO WE HELP
Desire Street coaches and cares for ministry leaders who are reaching hundreds of kids and families living in under-resourced neighborhoods across multiple cities and states.
WHAT WE DO
We help leaders stay on the field, where they reach kids and families living in under-served neighborhoods. Most leaders in these areas burn out in 5 years, so we come alongside to help them not only survive, but thrive for the long run needed to see revitalization.

You’ll find him today focused on the intersection of lives, leaders, and neighborhoods.
Be Our Champion
Revitalization is a marathon, not a sprint. We need to be there for ministry leaders as they serve alongside their neighbors in under-resourced neighborhoods. Desire Street Champions spur leaders on to the finish line by giving monthly so Desire Street can coach and care for these heroes. No matter the amount, it really adds up!
