In 1986, Steve and Wanda, along with a small team of dedicated volunteers, founded a small street ministry called The Better Way. Located in Columbus, Ohio's Short North District, a notorious crime area, The Better Way focused on providing assistance to the homeless, working poor, runaway teens, and abused children. Through the decades, The Better Way, now known as Columbus Dream Center, has grown into a nationally recognized ministry that has provided care and ministry to hundreds of thousands of marginalized people.
Serving Columbus, Ohio's homeless and urban poor for more than three decades, Steve Campbell, alongside his wife Wanda, have experienced the abundance of God in some of the city's darkest alleyways and dingiest street corners. With Jesus as their source of light, Steve and Wanda have traveled to reach some of Columbus’ most desperate and forgotten individuals, connecting the lost with the love of God.
