New Life is thrilled to host Matthew Barnett on April 5th and 6th at New Life. Matthew is the co-founder of the LA Dream Center and senior pastor of the Angelus Temple, the central house of worship of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles, California.
We look forward to the impact God will have on us through Matthew’s bold and compassionate heart, as well as his no-nonsense approach to meeting the felt needs of people within our communities. Come be challenged and inspired like never before!
The Dream Center is a Pentecostal Christian Church mission located in the heart of inner city Los Angeles, California. The church and housing facility consists of almost 400,000 ft² in buildings on 8.8 acres of prime commercial real estate, and ministers to gang members, drug addicts, unwed mothers and children without parents, motorcycle groups, taggers, AIDS victims, and various subculture, ethnic and nationality groups.
It feeds the homeless and others in need and runs a halfway house for released prisoners. Close to 500 people are housed at the center and receive rehabilitation. Many other services are offered each week to meet the spiritual and physical needs of the community.
The center has been said to epitomize a quote by Tommy Barnett, pastor of the Phoenix First Assembly of God Church, “Find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it.”
