The Dream Center Project: Faith-Based Economic and Community Development on J-Street Open Access
Davis, James G. (Spring 2019)
The Dream Center is a faith-based, asset-based community development project of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church to build affordable rentalhousing in the inner-city community of North Nashville, while simultaneously initiating economic and community development in the area around the church’s Historic Jefferson Street location. The lack of affordable housing and income inequality is especially traumatic for the African American community. The need to address these chronic issues is the impetus for the project. The affordable housing component of the Dream Center, and the business/office components, will address some of these issues The Dream Center will also be an evangelistic endeavor that will meet the demands of changing ministry dynamics, through an out of the box ministry designed to meet the needs of a growing church congregation and a rapidly growing and changing Nashville community. This will help people live life, and live it more abundantly, as Jesus Christ would have us do.
