Pastor Dimas gives the credit for all success in the growth of Living Hope and his personal life to God. He knows through his own experiences that if you are truly repentant, God is quick to forgive you. And more than that, the Bible tells us He is able to keep us from falling! He is continually in awe of how God is using His people to advance the ministry. It is his heart's desire to see Living Hope become the vessel that brings Christ to the masses by combining a strong foundation with a fresh and inspired vision of change.
