  • DIMOM is attempting to plan a Prayer In The Parks Program. This program would offer a weekly prayer gathering at local Harford County, Maryland Parks and outdoor spaces.

Prayer In The Parks – Planning In Progress

July 21st, 2021|

We are pleased to announce that we have begun planning on our first official public activity since the onset of the COVID19 Pandemic. We will soon be announcing Prayer In The Parks events at public parks in Harford County, Maryland. These events will be (BYOC) or Bring Your Own Chair (or blanket if you prefer) as we will be picking an open area in which to gather. Though we would love to host these events in a pavilion or under cover we do not have the resources at this time to rent these conveniences.

  • Soles for Souls Sneaker Collection Drive. We are accepting donations of new or used sneakers, tennis shoes, athletics shoes, and cleats. These shoes are sent off to a zero waster refurbishment or recycling facility where our ministry receives a monetary value per pair. Help us grow our ministry by cleaning out your closet, instead of your wallet.

Soles For Souls Sneaker Recycling Fundraiser Begins

July 16th, 2021|

Did you know that your gently worn sneakers could help our ministry grow? Well, they can and here’s how… Our team is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell; All we need is your support and your gently worn, used, or new sneakers! Here’s how you can help: Start in your and your family’s closets and gather as many pair of sneakers that you no longer want; maybe you’ve out-grown them, they’re out of style, or out of season. If you and your household have 20 pairs, great! If not, don’t worry.

Christ Vision Media Network Shutting Down

July 16th, 2021|

In an ambitious move to take advantage of online media, Diakonos Independent Ministries of Maryland made a bold attempt to start an Online Christian Media Network during the tail end of the US COVID19 Pandemic. "Though there was much interest especially from other media sources to syndicate on our internet radio component, the costs and time commitments to sustain these media venues proved to be just too great for our limited resources," said Pastor Steve Hofmeister, Senior Pastor and President of Diakonos Independent Ministries. "This media move was an effort I chose to finance from my own pocket."

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
