DESIRE TO REVITALIZE

Here at the intersection of lives, leaders, and neighborhoods, YOU can have an impact on the tough challenges facing under-resourced neighborhoods: concentrated poverty, failing schools, unsafe streets, deteriorated housing, high unemployment, inadequate health care. 

Join us, our ministry leader partners, and the neighbors they love and serve alongside! Walking the journey together–coaching and caring for leaders who are reaching thousands of kids and families–together, we’re seeing neighborhoods being revitalized.

God bless,

Danny Wuerffel, Executive Director

DESIRE TO REACH

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.

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.

Learn about the amazing leaders and ministries intersected here at Desire Street.

WHY WE CARE

In the Bible, Jesus told us to love the Lord our God…and to love our neighbors as ourselves. (Matt. 22:36-40). Our mission is to love our neighbor by the work we do.

Thoughts at the Intersection

As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, like many others, I often contemplate how God most desires to use my life and witness for his glory. He clearly calls me to love him (Deut 6:5), to love my neighbors (Matt 22:39), and to make disciples (Matt 28:19). In...
