We are excited to welcome Pastor DIMAS as our special guest speaker

@LeaveAMark this weekend to celebrate our 9th Anniversary. We had Michael

Franzese originally scheduled to be with us this weekend, but due to

circumstances beyond his control Michael is not able to be with us.

 

Pastor Dimas Salaberrios is Senior Pastor of Infinity Bible Church, which he

founded with Tim Keller and Redeemer City to City, in the South Bronx of New

York City. Pastor Dimas is a dynamic teacher and speaker with a passion for seeing

Jesus transform lives that were once consumed with hopelessness, darkness, and

despair.

 

His unwavering faith led him to fulfill a vision where Jesus could show Himself

strong and shine the brightest.  The Church is located in the Bronx River Housing

Projects. Bronx River holds the distinction of being the birthplace of hip hop.

Bronx River is located in a section of the South Bronx that has the youngest

residents in NY State and also has the poorest residents in the entire United

States of America.

 

Pastor Dimas recently released a new book about his life titled “Street God.” On

the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas began selling drugs

when he was eleven years old, and by age sixteen he had served his first stint at

the notorious Rikers Island prison. Dimas saw only one way to survive: by reigning

over the streets. He intended to be the richest, most powerful ruler in the

hood…..or he would die trying.

 

Street God is the true story of one man’s dangerous journey through the

underworld of crime, drugs, and almost certain death. It was an encounter with

the real God that saved his life. A dramatic, compelling memoir full of twists and

turns, Street God delves deep into a world from which few ever emerge – and

shows how a single spark of light can illuminate even the darkest existence.

 

Please join Pastor Dimas and all of us @LeaveAMark for one of our three services

this weekend –

“Our prayer is that we will continue to live out the dream of reaching Columbus

for Jesus.”

This weekend is going to be incredible!!

I Love you all,

Pastor Steve
