Lisa Parillo

Business Manager
Having served churches and para-church ministries as a consultant for over 15 years, the Lord transitioned Lisa to serving on staff at Dwelling Place Network shortly after its inception. Being a part of this church family has reenergized her passion for seeing people turn their lives over to Christ and be set free from life’s strongholds. Her heart’s cry is for everyone to experience the overwhelming love of God, and the peace and joy that can only come from abiding in Him.

Franco Acevedo

Associate Pastor 
& Shop Men’s Group Leader
I've come a very long way! Growing up in Vineland, NJ, I was always in trouble. At a very young age I began using drugs, selling drugs, fighting, stealing, etc... it wasn't until I turned 30 that I truly surrendered my life to Christ. Ever since then my life has been an amazing journey of love, victory, defeat, joy, and most of all, freedom! The hope that God has given me in this life, and the next, is what wakes me up every morning ready for anything! God has been faithful and loving to me, and I want to give it back to Him by loving on people that are broken and hurting, just like I was. I am excited to lead people to Jesus so that they can know and experience His Perfect Love!

Jade Bledsoe

Children's Pastor
Both her parents were taken out of her life at a young age and she was passed around to different family members. When she was 17 she was radically rescued  from sin and depression. After giving her heart to Jesus she determined to fully surrender her heart and life to him and the calling of ministry. Her desire is to see men and women made whole and surrendered to the Lord; and children to receive love and acceptance from their Heavenly Father.

Manuel Nutt

Worship Leader
I dedicated my life to Christ in 1995, at the age of 19. I immediately became a youth leader; eight years into youth ministry the Lord called me to be a Worship Leader. My goal for every service is to usher in the tangible Presence of God.

Michelle Defeo

Assistant Director of Freedom Homes
& Freedom Market Director
I grew up here in Millville. The lord found me in my sin in 2016, bound by addiction, and he loved me enough to recuse me. I graduated and served at Teen Challenge until 2018 and I'm now happily married and serving as The Assistant Director of Freedom Homes. My goal in life is to see women and their children set free and restored to who God has called them to be.

Jose & Christine DeLaRosa

Youth Pastors
Jose and Christine have a blended family, with teenagers of their own. So they are driven and devoted to pour into this tender age group.  Their heartbeat is first and foremost to see revival birthed in the next generation. Secondarily, to give the youth a positive alternative to the "fun" that the world has to offer.  Jose and Christine are both familiar with the tug of worldly living, but by the transforming power of God, they have become prodigals returned home.

Steve Wilson

Men's Freedom Home Director
The Lord met me in the darkest time of my life, in the pits of addiction.  I found Him crying out on my knees and was baptized by the Holy Spirit. I am a graduate of Teen Challenge and served there for 6 years. God has given me a heart to reach the broken and lost. He called me to Freedom Homes here in Millville to do just that. I am currently serving as the men's home director and I'm excited to see lives transformed.

Erin Kate

Women's Home Director
I started running the streets when I was 15 years old; dealing drugs and gang affiliated until I was 34 years old. I chose to go to a faith based program in New York and it was then that I met Jesus. He started to change me from the inside out!
The Lord has blessed me with being able to be the director of the women's home.  I am honored to walk this journey with the women he places in my life. I know if he can change me he can change anyone! Today I walk in love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, and freedom. I am nothing without Jesus, but I am everything with him.

Corinne Berger

Church Operations
& First Impressions Coordinator
I came to the Lord on my knees. I was out of options and out of excuses. Because I had grown up in church, a part of me always knew I was running from my Creator. On January 17th, 2017 at the age of 20 years old, I finally let Him catch me! Ever since, the story of my life has been Galatians 2:20 which says, "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." I am devoted to showing others that Christ is truly our only source! My heart is for the body of Christ to pull together in unity for the purpose of overflowing the love of God into the community around us. Jesus said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).

Elvis & Nancy Velez

Hospitality Directors

Yami Ortiz

DP Warriors Co-Leader
I grew up in a mixed Catholic household. I always new Jesus existed, but was not guided to stand firm on his word. In 2013, I was baptized by water, and 2016, I was baptized with the evidence of tongues. It's amazing what God, the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit will do in your life, when you desperately seek them. From 2012-2016, I yearned to know the Lord, but drifted in a desert. The Lord tugged and pulled, and showed me, I am His. His chosen are called by name, and He reveals Himself to His beloved.

Angel & Aixa Soto

Freedom Group Instructors
The Soto’s have been married since May 2011. We are raw, real, and straight to the point. We don’t compromise, we are about our Fathers business and we carry The Father’s heart in all that we do.  Serving others is what fills our hearts! Our mission is to see others that are bound set free and walk in their true identity with a strong solid foundation in Christ!

Gerald Lewis

Live Stream Coordinator 
& DP Warriors Co-Leader
I was raised Baptist and was in church from infancy until I was 18. I attended college at Monmouth University were I recieved a degree in Business administration. In that time I was an NCAA athete, but during my time in college I lost my way. I focused less on God and more on fulfilling worldly desires. If it wasn't for the grace of God and a praying family, I dont know where I'd be. A close friend invited me to Dwelling place and from that day my faith was restored.
I have a calling on my life to be in the ministry. I've spent much of my life around younger people, tutoring when I was in college, substitute teaching and now coaching youth football. My hope and prayer is to be able to bring the youth of this community/country to the Lord.

Sean Michael Tugnon

Evangelism Coordinator
I dedicated my life to Christ in 2013 and I haven't been the same since! I had some of my darkest moments while I've been saved, but God brought me through every time. My heart is for the city of Millville, NJ to be transformed by the word of God and by the word of our testimony! My goal is to make disciples and to make a difference. I want to empower believers to walk in their calling, what ever that may be. Not everyone is called to be an evangelist, but everyone should know how to evangelize.
