25 Years Later


Dear Friends,

Twenty-five years ago at this time I was wrapping up a seminary degree and searching missionary support for the venturous success – Desire Street Ministries. God worked. He preceded us. We saw it first hand.

I used to playfully remark, tongue in the proverbial cheek, that after a 15 year commitment to one of the most challenged urban communities in the country, I would have finished my life’s work…right in time for my personal mid-life crisis. I’ve rarely been more prophetic.

After a devastating hurricane – my 40’s flew by – marked by deep grace, healing, restoration. This year I turn 50 and I’m cranking it up again – not altogether the same person – a little scarred – but more the wiser.

Lori and I have purchased a home in the Northeast quadrant of Jacksonville with a view to a new urban ministry launch – called Rebirth Community Ministries. We’re presently running youth Bible Studies and tutoring programs already out of our home – placing young men, women in jobs, sending some to college while promoting healthy self-reliance, sacred surrender and supporting their pursuit to become all God created them to be! We envision these efforts in indigenous leadership development to lead to a community center, school, church and a headquarters for advancing the mission of God in pockets of poverty around this country and beyond.

So we are once again humbly seeking your prayers and involvement.

We have full-support from our home fellowship, River City Church. We’re seeking partnerships with others – individuals and churches. Having just completed my 12th CD project, I’m gearing up for the troubadour missionary role I’m accustomed to – my little musical tent-making enterprise to fuel a movement. 

Let me know if you have interest in hearing more, scheduling a concert in your home or church or would like to discuss the opportunity to support this new effort.

Until then, I am your servant,

mo leverett,

The Joy of One Thing


In a broken world – where the news cycle is a spinning kaleidoscope of calamity – it is necessary to explore and rediscover the joy of one thing.

In this shattered age, there is plenty enough to make us sad, enough to make us afraid, enough to make us even panic or despondent – yet there is always the joy of one thing.

These Are The Days


Youthful pains give way to older ones – and such is the pilgrimage of life. Yet there is a relief of pressure that comes with the passing of age – the dawning of a unique form of restfulness. And that is what this song is all about.
