Daniel serves as the executive director of Englewood Family Outreach, a small non-profit organization on the south side of Chicago. Daniel does everything from support raising to janitorial work to leading Bible studies. The focus of his ministry is relational–primarily focused on the relationship between God and those they serve, but also the many other entangled and broken human relationships. Englewood Family Outreach hosts three Bible studies each week as well as numerous individual meetings. However, their routine is often disrupted by the brokenness and devastation in the surrounding community, ranging from hospital visits to funerals. In all this, they desire to allow the light of the gospel to shine through their words and deeds, seeking to restore communities in Englewood by proclaiming Christ, training in godliness and empowering the vulnerable.

Manny serves with Koinonia House National Ministries (KHNM). Manny is the CEO and his wife, Barbara, works as the operations director. KHNM seeks to glorify God through the redemption of thier neighbors in prison by the gospel of Jesus and their continued discipleship out of prison, thus reducing the recidivism rate and bridging the gap between the Christian inmate and the local church. So far this year, they have conducted multi-day prayer conferences in seven Illinois prisons. They also lead Real Ttime Out, a weekly gathering where all are welcome to experience the love of Jesus Christ regardless of their color, class, culture, crisis or crime. In 2019, the Mills have proclaimed the gospel in five prisons and taught on prayer in five churches throughout Ecuador.
