Shortly after a wild experience where God took hold of the wheel of Dan’s car and pulled him in front of a building on Hwy 53 in Duluth, MN; the ministry known as Jesus is Life Ministries began, it was October in 1998. Those first days were God driven and Dan didn’t know what he was doing for sure, sitting behind a desk with a phone in a mostly empty 500 sq/ft building like a “Maytag” repairman, God birthed this ministry. Several transitions later, sharing resources like books, tapes and videos and a Bible Study soon became two ministries in one.
The first Jesus is Life Ministries & Bookstore was in operation until it was sold and became Shining Light Bookstore in the spring of 2017. The Bookstore was also a Ministry Center where we saw people get saved, healed, delivered and their loved ones saved through prayer.
The second ministry, a church, Jesus is Life Christian Center was birthed in a house on Hwy 53 in Duluth, MN in 2000, 9 months later it moved to the LeGrand Supper Club and after another 9 month period in September of 2001 it moved to its current location in West Duluth. Today the church has a healing & deliverance ministry, supports three prison ministries, missions in India, and the Dominican Republic, a street ministry, a food shelf, clothing shelf and joins with other local ministries and churches in the Twin Ports in prayer to see the transformation of this wonderful area on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota.
