‘Dream Center’ Becomes Reality
Downtown Member, Jim Barnhardt owner of J&R Vacuum, has made a dream become reality, the recently opened Dream Center Bismarck.
“Jim’s story of creating a Dream Center in the city of Bismarck starts on May 29, 2016. He woke up with a vision for a meal ministry and services to help those in need firmly planted in his mind. Jim explained his vision to his wife Cindy and asked her what she thought about it. Cindy’s reply was, “You know what you need to do.” What Jim didn’t realize at the time, was it was that vision and direction from God that would kick-start his drive to bring a Dream Center to Bismarck. For the next year, Cindy and Jim met with many people in the community, including several pastors, church leaders, city officials and the Mayor to discuss this vision.”
