What is the Changing Lives Together Initiative?

The Changing Lives Together initiative is centered around the desire to empower the lives of people in this nation and around the world. Under the visionary leadership of Bishop Lyle Dukes and Pastor Deborah Dukes, thousands of members and 500 covenant pastors, plus thousands of individual partners around the world, are uniting to effect change and save a hurting world.

The various programs and services within the Changing Lives Together Initiative bring hope to the hurting and help to those in need. We serve our community through a number of local outreach programs including prison ministry, homelessness prevention shelters, domestic abuse shelters, foster care programs, and several annual drives that provide clothing, food, toys, school supplies, coats, blankets and more.

Community Outreach

Bishop Lyle Dukes and Pastor Deborah Dukes are well-known and highly regarded community leaders with a global ministry that is in touch with the needs of the local community. The community programs and services supported by Harvest Life Church volunteers are changing lives, reaching the lost and bringing hope throughout Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC metropolitan area in conjunction with our world missions programs.

Whether distributing coats, blankets or school supplies; organizing food supply drives or serving meals in the homeless prevention shelter, our ministry provides help to individuals and families in need. We are also helping to provide healthy and nutritious meals to emergency shelters, substance abuse treatment programs, community and youth centers, senior citizen programs and other social service agencies.

Our community outreach also includes our prison ministry as we provide Bibles, Christian literature and other items to those that are incarcerated. We hold monthly services at the male and female prison facilities as well as provide some assistance to the inmates when they are released. Our outreach is not limited to just our local community but also includes our region and the entire world through initiatives, programs and building projects such as the Harvest Conference Center in Nakuru, Kenya, the Haiti/Chile Relief Initiative and the Pastors’ Network which helps pastors globally.

World Missions

Our world missions ministry extends around the globe from the United States to the UK, India and the region of Eastern Africa, where the Harvest Life Church has built the Harvest Conference Center in Nakuru, Kenya. This new construction is empowering the people to help spread the gospel and minister to the needs of people in Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and other countries. The center offers weekly worship services and provides a place for distribution of food, clothing and other necessities during these challenging times.

Lyle and Deborah Dukes share the gospel, visiting and praying for the sick, distributing clothes and shoes for children within the school and dispensing food and other items to families who are in need. Through the generous support of our partners and friends, we are able to touch the lives of many. This conference center is just the beginning of our missions in Eastern Africa. We are also building a medical facility to provide medical care for hundreds of families in dire need. This medical facility will also house a maternity ward in a highly underserved community. We hope to develop, with the support of our Pastors Network and other ministry partners, a strong relationship with the Kenyan government and enterprising businesses in order to increase aid to the people of Kenya. We are changing lives together!
