Street God Author Dimas Salaberrios Brings God
to the Streets of Paris after Terrorist Attacks

Pastor Dimas Salaberrios, author of Street God (Tyndale Momentum) and pastor at Infinity Bible Church in New York, spent time in Paris, France, to minister to the pain with public prayer in the wake of the November 13 terrorist attacks.

Dimas and his family were vacationing in Europe as part of his Street God book tour. They thought about going to Paris two days before the attacks, but decided to go to Milan instead. After hearing about the devastation in Paris, the Salaberrios family, including their two young daughters, knew they needed to go to Paris to minister to the people there. 

Dimas and another pastor from Infinity Bible Church who met them in France led public prayer meetings in the city that were welcomed by the local people, who usually keep prayer private. Dimas has shared more details about his time in Paris and the spiritual climate in a post on the  Tyndale blog. He also appeared live from Paris on FOX & Friends to share about what was happening there. 

Street God: The Explosive True Story of a Former Drug Boss on the Run from the Hood—and the Courageous Mission that Drove Him Back is Dimas’s memoir. The man who used to bring drugs to the streets is now being used to bring God to the streets of hurting cities around the world. 

Dimas Salaberrios is pastor of Infinity Bible Church, which he founded in partnership with Tim Keller and Redeemer City to City, in the South Bronx of New York City. Infinity targets at-risk youth and spearheads numerous outreach events and discipleship groups. As a worldwide missionary, church planter, and speaker, Pastor Dimas has shared the gospel on every continent except Antarctica. He is also president of Concerts of Prayer Greater New York, and he holds a master of divinity degree from Alliance Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Tiffany, live in the Bronx with their two daughters. Learn more at streetgodbook.com.
