About Target Dayton Ministries


Mark and CindiMark and Cindi Stevens: Senior Pastor and Director
Mark and Cindi moved to the inner city in the spring of 2000 and began full time ministry as the directors of Target Dayton in June of 2002.  During the past 15 years the ministry has grown from a small Saturday meal for the homeless into a life changing ministry affecting thousands of poor and homeless people with the help and support of hundreds of volunteers each month.

At the beginning of 2013, Mark and Cindi were joined by Cindi’s son, Robbie and his family.  Robbie is married to Amanda, and they have 3 beautiful daughters.  They have followed God’s call on their lives as they left behind everything and moved from Atlanta, GA to join in the ministry here in Dayton.

Tim has been with Target Dayton Ministries since the Summer of 2015.  He interned with Target Dayton for the summer of 2015, then graduated from the University of Dayton with a degree in mechanical engineering that winter.  After graduating, Tim answered God’s call to join the ministry full time in 2016.
 John Mitchell: Worship Pastor
John, his wife Joy, and their 3 boys moved here in July of 2017 from Savannah, GA to be in full time ministry with us.  It is especially exciting for them to join us since John first realized his call into music ministry when he was on a trip to Target Dayton with Robbie back in the early 2000s.  To hear more of their story, check out

While the ministry has improved and expanded during the past 15 years, the mission of Target Dayton remain the same.  Our mission is to be a church for the poor and homeless; to express God’s love to the poor through ministries of compassion and to lead them into a life changing personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


Please partner with us through your financial support to meet the ever growing need for our vital ministries to the poor and homeless. “Jesus said,
“Whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
– Matthew 25:40
