In 1982, Ray Meltvedt embraced the act of servant leadership when he saw that the basic need of shelter was missing for the desperte and forgotten Mayan Indians living across the California border in and around Tecate, Mexico. He realized how close poverty is, as even Jesus said, “the poor will always be among you.” In an effort to meet their need, he designed a simple 16’ x 20’ wood-framed house that could easily be built with a small team of volunteers. From there, his mission quickly became a successful reality called “Club Dust”, and began leading others to help him serve those in need.
Ray's four brothers and sisters(inspired by
German immigrant mother) share is his desire to give back
and help others. His sister Bella designed a secondary program
that is used in conjuction with his house building efforts,
to teach both individuals and groups on the keys traits of
Servant Leadership, and how to love others with humility
and compassion. With our affiliate churches and volunteers
we are committed to celebrating God's godness as we spread
His love and promise to those in need.
mission is to teach Servant Leadership by providing,
practicing and encouraging this biblical principle, thereby offering
genuine care and comfort to our neighbors near and far.
