Who: The Grand Rapids Dream Center is a grassroots, hands-on platform for anyone who wants to serve and get involved in our city.
Mission: Go to where people are through being grassroots, boots on the ground, getting to know people, being responsive to relationships, by demonstrating active love through serving, consistency, acts of kindness, long-term relationship and care.
Vision: Actively grow our relationship with the city and communities of our city. Through relationship and responsiveness, continue to grow the consistent platform of people who are involved city-wide. We hope that people will come to know God, grow closer to Him, and walk in the fullness of their God-given potential for life. We believe this will produce impact in our city, region, and world-wide.
How: The Dream Center has been focused on building a relationship with our city and communities by being focused on getting to know our city more and getting to know the communities more.
How have we done that, is by taking personal interest in the individuals and families in our city’s communities by showing we really care by getting to know people and responding to our relationships by how can we be a blessing or love on people or be responsive to the community collectively as well.
“Find a need and fill it, find a hurt and help heal it.”
We have built trust in the communities we serve in because we are committed to being consistent serving every week or many times daily.
Why are we motivated? We love people for who they are no matter where they are. We want to be committed to long-term relationships to make a difference. It’s the love of God. We definitely want to talk about Gods love, but by being committed, we want to humbly show people by action we care. We believe we have been creating multiple platforms where anyone can be involved and make a difference. Another difference maker is we are grassroots, we go to where people are in communities or where they live weekly and often times daily, so the love is active and has an ability to go anywhere and it does with GRDC.
