Throughout the month of May, will highlight Ministry Today magazine's 21 ministries and churches influencing the 21st-century church. Today it's the Dream Center in Los Angeles, which specializes in compassion ministry.

Matthew Barnett has repeatedly said, “Compassionate people don’t just wake up overnight. They make themselves available to be put in situations that require them to be compassionate.”

Celebrating its 20-year anniversary in 2014, the Dream Center forges into the future as it continues to fill the needs of 50,000 individuals and families each month. The Dream Center has become a tireless and timeless spiritual healing center, taking in at-risk teens, human-trafficking victims and the destitute and introducing them to the gospel. It provides mobile hunger relief, medical programs, foster care intervention programs, job-skills training and life-skills counseling. Through programs such as Serve24, a 24-hour outreach into some of the darkest areas of Los Angeles, the Dream Center continues to make a huge impact on the 21st-century church.

In essence, as its website says, the Dream Center works to meet people where they are in order to bring them hope and a way off the streets.
