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
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 –

This weekend is going to be incredible!!
