Pastor Michael Davis

Our mission is to lead the individuals and families of our inner-city community to lives of Gospel transformation, and we support that mission in every ministry and program offered through our community center, The DEN. Our motto is "Breaking chains for change." We want our inner-city youth to understand that education is critical to breaking the chains of poverty.

We provide a unique ministry that uses christian hip-hop, videos and relatable bible studies to reach and engage our inner-city youth.


The programs provided through The DEN Community Center are designed to minister to the entire family from school-age children through adults. The programs currently available include:

Lunch Buddy In-School Mentoring

For grade school children. Volunteers are matched with a student and
join them for lunch at school twice a month.


An after school homework help program for kids in K-6th grade. Lions Club meets Monday-Friday from 3:30-6:00. Email for details or to sign up.
