Dream Life Mission Statement
To reach our high school and college age youth for Christ with a message of rehabilitation and restoration through relationship building, character development, education, training and an intentional focus on assisting them toward finding and fulfilling their purpose. John 10:10 Jesus says these words (Joh 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 14:6 says “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:” 1 John 5:12 says, “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” By these scriptures we understand that true life is only found in Jesus. We commit to Jesus, our “Dream Life”. We will live for Him and die for Him. As in the words of Paul in Galations 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
DreamLife rescues high school and college age youth in drug addiction, violence, suicide, perverse lifestyles, and other life altering issues. We restore them and raise them up to walk in their destiny and purpose in life. Through faith, fathering, and focusing their energy and time in growing and giving we are seeing some of our nations most challenged youth become incredible assets to society. Dream Life’s program involves six main values and principles:
- Encounter With God
- Character Development
- Work Program
- Education and Training
- Relationship Development
Eddie James Ministries cares for 60 high school and college age youth. Many of them are students in the DreamLife Program. Others are interns and staff. Our headquarters is in Lawrenceville, GA. We also have a base in Crestview, FL with Harvest Vineyard Ministries – Pastor Alex Thompson. We have a home for the men and a home for the ladies. DreamLife is at no cost to those who join. Much of DreamLife funding comes from Eddie James, founder of DreamLife who uses all of his royalties and music proceeds to care for DreamLife members. We also have monthly supporters and one-time donors who help underwrite the program. Freedom is not FREE!!! We encourage you to help us in the fight for freedom for this generation. The statistics of drugs among our youth are alarming. The violence, fatherlessness, and suicide is heartbreaking. When you give you help save a life. We who serve with Eddie James in this mission have found it to be the adventure of a lifetime. It’s AMAZING to see what God has done in the lives of those who come into DreamLife. Thank you for your support and prayers!!
