February 2018 marked the 20 Year Anniversary of The Dwelling Place!
Do those who founded and led this ministry 20 years ago imagine the impact The Dwelling Place would have on the lives of so many women and children who found safety and hope here through Christ's love? Or imagine the impact of the volunteers who gave of their time and talent, or the impact of generous financial partners who supported the ministry in so many ways, or the impact of The Dwelling Place staff who expressed their hearts through their work as they walked the path with very fragile lives every day?
We know that they desired God would use it for His purposes, but doubt anyone could have imagined (even now) how God would transform and impact so many lives in the span of 20 years!
What we know…
- Countless women and children have experienced the love of Jesus Christ faithfully shared through multiple staff and volunteers. Many have trusted their lives to Jesus, receiving His redeeming power and hope that heals and restores broken lives.
What we see…
- Women and children, broken by abuse and loss (in ways most cannot even imagine), discovering a new identity in Christ that, through faith, produces the confidence to move forward (through many barriers) to heal, gain hope, and live free from abuse and fear.
What we believe…
- "Our God is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. To Him be all glory and honor and praise!" Ephesians 3:20, 21
- God is continually drawing us close to His heart. He guides us step by step on this path to serve women and children well, lay the solid foundation for growth, and depend upon His mighty love, power, and provision every day!
Our trust and hope is in God, believing the past 20 years is just the beginning of what He has in store for those connected with The Dwelling Place!
