REACHING families in urban denver
March 6th, 2019


We believe that making a positive impact in our community starts from the ground up. At ODM that means reaching kiddos 3-12 years old in the Open Door Learning Center.

Over the past month our Preschool enrollment increased from 13 to 19 students. Our before-and-after-school program for elementary school kids is also at its max capacity of 20 students. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve as many students as possible because ultimately we are able to make an impact on their families as a whole. In the near future we are also planning on starting a play therapy group in the center for some of our students with a local counselor.

Since the Learning Center is filled to the brim with students, we are in need of hiring a Lead Teacher and Student Ministries Admin Coordinator. You can learn more about these positions at Thank you for helping us spread the word as we continue reaching our community with the hope of Christ!

Launching youth ministry on the westside of denver
February 21st, 2019


We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Westside Youth Center to reach middle school and high school students living in west Denver!

In January of 2018 Open Door Fellowship helped plant Westside Church Internacional (WCI) in Denver’s Mar Lee neighborhood, located off of Federal and Louisiana. Now that the church has been established for a year, Open Door Ministries has hired Dean Smiles (pictured above) to start a youth ministry over at WCI. We are excited to expand ODM’s reach to this vibrant Mexican neighborhood filled with low-income families.

To kick off the start of the Westside Youth Center, we will be opening up the WCI gymnasium on Friday nights for students to come over and play basketball. We are also in need of gaming systems and video games as we create an environment to better reach students. If you’re interested in donating any of these items, please contact Dean at or 918-504-7276.

We’re excited to see what God has in store as we expand our ministry to the Westside of Denver!
