Ron Dotzler, the founder of Bridge Church, often asks people.
Before that time, Ron ..., 1 Jan 2011 [cached]
Before that time, Ron Dotzler, founder of Abide Ministries said, part of the building was an old horse-and-buggy fire station. Immanuel Lutheran bought it in 1885. "This building was so massive and with the huge boilers in the basement, Holy Name had no use for it. It sat vacant for 20 years," Dotzler said. Abide acquired the building in 1993, and renovation began. The building was more rubble than substance.
Dotzler said part of one area inside is the base of a 150-foot chimney that can be seen in old photos. Dotzler said the building had been a gang hangout, so drug paraphernalia, bullets, and graffiti were the legacy left behind.
"Dead bodies were pulled out of the building just before we moved in," Dotzler said. Brick walls have been left to keep the nostalgia of the past. The area where the old pump house was, is where coal was ramped down to the furnaces and boilers. Dotzler and volunteers hauled in dirt to cover the boilers, tore out the underground pipes, and laid a concrete floor over it.
"We want to raise up a generation of world changers," Dotzler said. He and his family have lived in part of the building all along and minister to anyone who needs their help.
I got a call at midnight to get a gal's boyfriend out of the bar," Dotzler said. "I did and he gave his life to Christ that night. Dotzler had just acquired the house next door, so he let the man move into it, discipled him and now the man is giving back to the ministry and the community.
All that Abide does is very relational and has racial reconciliation emphasis. Supplies and furnishings also come exactly when needed.
"God knows what you need, how much you need, and when you need it," Dotzler said.
The 34th and Fowler location over time went from facilities to help the area, to abandonment, violence and a dying community. Dotzler has a map of the area with a black pin, marking 34th and Fowler, surrounded thickly by red pins. The red pins represent a history of crime in the area.
"The area that is the most dangerous place for any of us to live in is now in the center of God's will," he said.
This place was part of my heritage, and Dotzler has now brought families back into these homes to start a new generation's heritage. "Our dream is that one day there will be no inner-city. The Christian Church will be so active and alive in Omaha, people all over the world will be amazed," he said.
