Shalam has discovered that he is called to evangelize every place he goes. He enjoys speaking and praying with people everywhere. In churches, meetings, the market places, or just out to dinner with Rebecca. Anywhere the Holy Spirit inspires a conversation (this turns out to be pretty much every where).



ABOUT THE FOUNDERS


Shalam and Rebecca Das have been married for 20 years. They have three children. Both Shalam and Rebecca were born and raised in Seattle, Washington. They now have there home base in Hickory, North Carolina.


Shalam grew up surrounded by addiction and abuse. He said YES, and I DO to Jesus in his life in 2004.

"I've seen the inside of organized crime, addiction, and prison cells. I've experienced the hopelessness and bondage of a self indulging lifestyle. In Christ I am a new creation and now live a Blood bought, Sold out, on Fire life for Jesus."  --- S.Das


Rebecca grew up in a Christian home. She accepted Jesus in her life at a very young age.

"I spent 15 years of our marriage watching a man be something he was never created to be. Praying for, believing in, and loving him until God grabbed  a hold of him. It is nothing short of a miracle that we are still married today. Gods ability to restore people speaks volumes of His incredible Love for everyone, regardless of where they are, what they have done or what they believe." --- Rebecca Das


Both of them recommitted their lives and were filled by the Holy Spirit in 2011.

As of 2018 they have traveled and ministered in 43 states across the USA.
