The Best Life
Brad and Stella met and fell in love in Los Angeles while serving at the Dream Center. They worked for the Dream Center and Angelus Temple for over ten years, serving in several ministries including Mobile Food Truck Outreach, Men’s Discipleship Homes, Teen Homes, Short Term Missions Programs, Youth Pastoring, Youth Community Centers, and Associate Pastoring.
In 2009, Pastor Matthew Barnett gave Brad and Stella the opportunity to plant and build the Dream Center in New York City. They, along with their four children, live in Harlem and have given their lives to seeing their community in New York City reached with the love of Jesus.
Their passion is to serve people right where they are to where God dreams for them to be.
