DIG DEEPER

Desire Street stands as an intersection of life, leaders and neighborhoods. This 12-minute video digs deeper into the mission, heart and impact that our ministry partners make in transforming communities. We believe in creating a feeling of community and cultivating strong leaders to make an imprint on lives.

The path takes different twists and turns in each neighborhood, but learning from and sharing resources with others experienced in spiritual and community development is a good place to start.
