Jim Gilley: 3ABN is the most exciting ministry that I’ve ever had the privilege of being associated with, and one of the things that’s exciting about this ministry is that it has a balanced approach. It’s reaching out constantly to every people group. It’s bringing to you programs of teaching, programs of foods and cooking and exercise, children’s programs, and so on and so forth.
When I first came, we began to study the possibility, though, of reaching out more to specific people groups. This was brought about largely by the emphasis of the General Conference upon the inner city, because we had the great cities of the world that are not being touched.
Along with Danny Shelton, we came up and found a person called Dr. Yvonne Lewis, and Dr. Yvonne Lewis began a ministry called Dare to Dream, that is growing and is just a beautiful ministry. Tell us a little bit about it.
Dr. Yvonne Lewis: God has been so good, and I’m so grateful for what He’s doing with Dare to Dream. We have all of these different programs that actually address the issues that confront inner-city residents. Whereas many inner-city residents have chronic disease issues and health issues, we have lifestyle programs. And we have a program that addresses family relationships, because we know that there’s an erosion of the family going on in the inner city, as well as in American society in general.
We have programs for ex-offenders, a program called The New Journey, which is hosted by an ex-offender. So we are really excited about what God is doing.
And it’s so exciting that Dare to Dream is launching in the Bahamas on June 26. On June 26, we are going to have 3ABN Night, and during that night in the Bahamas we are going to be live, airing this wonderful event, and so I’m so excited.
Jim Gilley: So if you are in the Bahamas, join us on Thursday night, the 26th of June, at the Camp Meeting in Nassau. I’ll be there. Danny Shelton will be there. Reggie and Ladye Love Smith will be there, Yvonne Lewis will be there, and we will want to see you there.
