About

What is “Shalom” anyway? And what is this blog about?

Shalom Means Peace … And So Much More. Shalom is the Hebrew word for holistic peace — peace that permeates every aspect of our lives and our being. It is a word used throughout scripture to describe the absolute joy, flourishing, fulfillment, and bliss found in the presence of God. It also conveys the beautiful, interdependent relationships that God’s people eternally share with Him, each other, and all of creation.

Nothing Broken… Nothing Missing… The way things are supposed to be. Shalom is what has come into the world through Christ, and is made complete when Christ returns and fully eradicates sin and death forever. God is glorified as Shalom happens. We have a mission as God’s people to discover and display the Shalom of God’s Kingdom to this hurting world by faithfully proclaiming the Gospel in WORD and DEED as we share life with our neighbors. This blog documents one Kingdom Family’s journey to Shalom…

His wife called the naturopath because she wanted to get […]

A ministry…..of listening?

A Ministry Update Due to numerous factors, and after many hours of prayer and discerning the Lord’s direction, we, plus the elders of Perimeter Church, decided to move Shalom City Church into a season of pausing, praying, and (hopefully) planning the next season of house church development, discipleship and outreach. Can ministry mean more than […]

Turning 35…And What is Success, Anyways?

“You know you’re beautiful, right?” He whispered to me the morning after my 35th birthday, while my body still lay half-paralyzed from the exhaustion of the past week….a late night stay in the ER with my sister-in-law who was enduring painful appendicitis, two days of homeschool co-ops, one of which I taught at, late night […]

 But seek the Shalom of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its Shalom you will find your Shalom.”

Danny and Kimberly

Danny and Kimberly Iverson met while in college and fell in love 3 years later while Danny was running an inner city ministry in Newark, NJ. Their hearts for the poor and marginalized of society, and the conviction of God’s love and redemptive purposes for such places, drew them together on mission and continues to be a driving force as they follow God’s calling to plant a church in Grove Park that is focused on reconciliation and renewal. They love being on mission with their family of six children, Daniel Josiah, Trinity, Katy-Grace, Benjamin Zion, Malachi, and Judah. They currently live in Atlanta, GA and are running a house church in their home while sharing life with their amazing neighbors and community members.
