Ray Moore

Associate Pastor
I grew up living in sin; I was addicted to drugs, but even while I was deep in sin, I had a powerful encounter with Jesus that changed my life forever. My purpose, is to show others that they have a purpose and were created to be so much more. As I burn for Christ I want to help set others on fire for His glory.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Service Director
From addict, to the pastor of a thriving church, pride got the best of me. I fell back into the world, but God’s grace made room for me here at Dwelling Place Church. Now, I am using my testimony to help save and deliver the lost.

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.
