Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In August of 2013, we received an inspired vision to revitalize the residents and the neighborhood surrounding Fargo-Oakfield Playground located in Detroit, Michigan.  In 2014, through prayer, as a first initiative two local ministries House of Comfort Ministry and Holy City of God Fellowship Ministries formed a community based non-profit organization named Field of Dreams Community Development Inc. (FODCD).


“Field of Dreams" is our community venture that promotes the partnering of churches and their community to restore neighborhoods and establish communities in Northwest Detroit, giving our neighborhood children a safe haven in which to grow. Working together as family…“Yes, we can" bring back love into our communities.

We have begun by assembling current neighborhood block club leaders and rallying concerned residents encouraging the organizing of block clubs and neighborhood watches. Together we have held town hall meetings together with city officials to gather resources, establishing a sound vision for the community.

We have addressed many of the issues concerning the aesthetics in the neighborhood such as blight, overgrown lots, and dumping grounds. But our heart is still for God's people that make up these communities... especially the children. We must lead them to Jesus Christ. Their mindsets are in need of renewal. "Now lives faith, hope, love and the greatest is love.... now that's an inside job... God's domain.
