Harvest Time International
Our experience in working with families through Central Florida Dream Center has told us that when families are under distress, they often need assistance in acquiring basic items such as food, spiritual guidance and medical care. To help meet these needs, Central Florida Dream Center has entered into a strategic partnership with Harvest Time International to help meet those needs.
Founded in 1991 by Dr. John and Mary Murphy. Their vision was to help less fortunate people, by gathering food and basic need items in their own garage to distribute to families and churches. At first, they focused on assisting local nonprofit organizations, such as soup kitchens and food banks in Central Florida, however the need was so great the Murphy’s soon outgrew their facility and rented their first storage space in 1994.
In 1999, Harvest Time International opened its doors to directly serve local families through the Community Assistance Program. Today the 100,000 square foot facility known as the Community Hope Center. Thousands of people pour through the Hope Centers in Sanford and Volusia County to be blesses by the food and to, taking care of physical, medical, and dental needs.
Central Florida Dream Center then provides spiritual services, mentoring, entrepreneurship development and counseling that is changing the face of Sanford in the best of ways.
*Central Florida Dream Center and Harvest Time International partnership represents the model of what we are seeking to replicate across the country.

For over twenty-six years a group of pastors, ministers and leaders in the Seminole County Region have been gathering to connect and fellowship. Over these many years, key relationships were forged, so, when we were faced with the national tragedy in 2012 it was easier to draw on the strength of these relationships to stand together to see our City through one of its most difficult season.
Pastor Jeff Krall, Dr. John Murphy, Rev. Paul Benjamin, Pastor Stu Walthers, Pastor Jim Timmons and others from the leadership team stood in the gap during this tough season and are still working to facilitate Positive Regional Impact: Spiritually, Socially and Economically.
The team from SRMC would like to see the prayer of our Lord Jesus answered. “Father I pray that they will be one, just as you and I are one, as you are in me, Father and I am in you”. John 17:21 The Central Florida Dream Center is part of the healing process and with the key involvement of Paul Benjamin on the leadership team for over twenty years, the center helps to facilitate programs and services to help mitigate challenges in the region.
