Angel's Kitchen

Angel‘s Kitchen is the Food Pantry ministry based out of the Dream Center. Guests are provided groceries they need once a week at no cost, donated from our partners at Fresh Market and Second Harvest Food Bank. The kitchen‘s aim is to give value and connect with lower income families or homeless friends by meeting their practical needs with food and their spiritual needs by sharing the love of Christ. Each month we serve approximately 300 guests and share the gospel at every outreach! Want to get involved? Email us at:

Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies is an outreach to the public school system. Volunteers at the Dream Center prepare backpacks filled with food for children that are in need of meals over each weekend. The Dream Center sponsored three school this year, and the students in need are assessed by the school’s resource counselors. 

Reaching International Studies

Reaching International Students (RIS) is an outreach managed by Magda Cartwright under the umbrella of the Fayetteville Dream Center that focuses on connecting international students from Methodist University and Fayetteville State University with local families. There is no financial responsibility, nor housing needed, but the pleasure of being a family to a student who is seeking a more up close experience and understanding of the American culture. This year they welcomed 50 students from 34 different countries around the world! RIS is still in need of host families, email us to get involved.

Ladies of Value

Ladies of Value is an outreach with a mission to show the love of Christ to some of those least valued by our society, the adult entertainer. God burdened the hearts of these volunteers to show the ladies that no matter where they’re at, he wants a relationship with them. L.O.V. delivers gift bags with goodies and handwritten cards of encouragement to the dancers, bartenders, and waitresses. In the three years of L.O.V. outreaches, they have given out over 3,500 bags and walked beside countless women in the hardest times of their lives.
