Developing Thriving Leaders
Desire Street believes that the best investment for lasting change in a neighborhood is time, presence, and relationship. None of those things happen overnight, and the revitalization of under-resourced neighborhoods is a tremendous undertaking by courageous leaders nationwide.
That’s why our model for ministry is to work side-by-side with our Ministry Partners who share the calling to have a physical and spiritual presence in their neighborhoods.
