Memphis Dream Center

About MDC

The Memphis Dream Center exists to serve people, develop leaders and impact generations. Our goal is to meet the emotional, spiritual, educational and physical needs of individuals in our city. The efforts of the Dream Center are focused not only on addressing the symptoms of poverty, but also on meeting the needs of individuals with the goal of restoring their hopes and dreams, and bringing wholeness to their life.

Onsite Virtual Learning Center

As Shelby County Schools have moved to virtual learning for the Fall Semester, we realize there is a need for families to drop off their students in a safe environment that is conducive to learning. As a church, we are actively figuring out ways to help fill the gap for essential workers, community and church family by opening our buildings as Virtual Learning Centers within the CDC Guidelines.

If you are in a position, due to work or other circumstances, where you need to drop off your student at a Virtual Learning Center, or if you would be interested in working at one of our Virtual Learning Centers, please check out the links below.
