Divine Habitation Ministries, Intl. In September, 2002, Pastor Joann E. Allen, while serving as senior pastor of Saint James Missionary Baptist Church (the church she was raised up in as a child), and entering into her second year of service there, heeded the voice of God. The Holy Spirit led her to "leave the familiar, and go to a place where I will show you; build Me a habitation where I can dwell, and where My people can experience being in My presence". Through much prayer and obedience Divine Habitation Ministries, International (a non-denominational church) was birthed. DHMI is one of the fastest growing ministries in Vance County, North Carolina, bringing change and transformation to the lives of people. DHMI has from its birthing devoted itself to taking sound biblical doctrine and the full Gospel of Jesus Christ beyond the confines of the four walls of the church structure to the 'hedges and highways.' We have two mega community outreaches annually -- Summer Fest and Fall Fest, held at our city fairground. We also have outreach ministries such as the nursing home ministry, the Soup Kitchen (designed to feed the hungry), and Evangelism ministry in order to reach countless lives through the love of God and His life-changing power. DHMI is a ministry that ministers to the whole family and meets them at their point of need. We seek out the oppressed and desolate to give them hope. We currently have 30 ministries operating and following the vision.
