Dave Dokmo

Dave Dokmo was an ordained minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) for almost 25 years, serving as pastor of various churches around the Twin Cities, until addiction to crack cocaine changed his life dramatically and cost him his ministry. He struggled with recovery for a number of years, until he crossed paths with Pastor Johnny Hunter, who helped him reestablish his relationship with God, gave him new meaning and purpose, and allowed him to help start First Community Recovery Church.

Mother Yates

Mother yates

Mother Yates was born in Water Valley, Mississippi where her father was an old time preacher and pastor.  As she tells it, “I came to Minnesota in 1972 to get away from a bad marriage.”  Initially, she lived with an aunt and uncle and supported herself and her children by baby sitting.  It wasn’t long before she realized that in order to continue supporting her family she would need more education.  She went back to school and earned her GED at the age of 44, while caring for 5 children.
