Vision: “Share Christ, love people and help them discover destiny.”
Mission: “Help others discover destiny and develop them into significant and impactful members of their community, local church, and nation.”
Although officially established on 06 September 2017, DHSM is really the realization of two distinct instructions given by the Lord over the course of over 20 years!
In the mid 1990's, the Lord spoke these words to our Founder and Executive Director (Frederick K. Anderson) according to the same instructions He gave Peter in John 21:
"When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God.
Then he said to him, “Follow me!
Over twenty years later, while completing School of Ministry courses, the Lord again spoke to Frederick (through the Course Instructor, unknowing to her at the time) saying "...what we need are good Bible Schools [to equip the believer for ministry]."
From that very moment, those words took on a life of its own and the planning process began. In fact, this is the basis for our motto: "Equipping Christ's Ambassadors for global impact."
After continually seeking the Lord and wrapping up a two-year monthly prayer call, Frederick succeeded in establishing a start-up team of trusted friends and began the process which has yielded what we are blessed to experienced today.
"It is with great humility that I express my eternal gratitude to each member of the Start Up Team for their trust and support during this time. How amazing it is to think that the Lord would use us as instruments to bring forth this outcome to contribute to "our Father's business" of revealing His love for mankind, winning souls, and helping them "discover destiny," says Frederick.
Currently, plans are on track for a Pre-Launch event in Summer 2018 and for DHSM to begin classes in Fall 2018. Mark your calendars to celebrate with the team on what promises to be a glorious day.
In the meantime, if anyone is interested in joining our team of volunteers and/or teachers or may be one of the many students we've been sent to help prepare for next steps in ministry, we welcome the opportunity to meet you in person or to hear from you via one of our contact channels.
