Partnering with Dr. Tim Keller and Redeemer City to City, Dimas founded Infinity NY Church, planted at the Bronx River Housing Projects in 2006. Infinity Bible Church targets at-risk, gang-ridden youth and has spearheaded numerous outreach events, and weekly prayer walks, which have been significant factors in virtually eliminating homicides and other violent crimes at Bronx River. Former Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly credits Pastor Dimas and Infinity for the notable drop in crime. In 2013, Concerts of Prayer Greater NY (COPGNY) unanimously chose Pastor Dimas Salaberrios as its new president. He has been on the COPGNY Board of Directors for several years, an organization that is the largest mobilizing force of pastors in the Tri-state area. Dimas holds a Master of Divinity degree from Alliance Theological Seminary and resides in the Bronx with the love of his life, his wife Tiffany. They have three beautiful daughters: Shirley Ann, Dallas and Skylar.

Senior Pastor, Harvest Christian Fellowship
Greg Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship with campuses in California and Hawaii. He began his pastoral ministry at the age of 19 by leading a Bible study of 30 people. Since then, God has transformed that small group into a church of some 15,000 people. Today, Harvest is one of the largest churches in America.
In 1990, Greg Laurie began holding large-scale public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. Since that time, in-person attendance and live webcast views for these events have totaled more than 8.7 million, with 506,644 people deciding to make a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Laurie was also the speaker at Harvest America in Arlington, Texas, in 2016; with an attendance of 350,000 it was deemed the largest live one-day evangelistic event in US history.
Along with his work at Harvest Ministries, Greg Laurie served as the 2013 Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer, and also serves on the board of directors of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He holds honorary doctorates from Biola University and Azusa Pacific University.
Greg has been married to Cathe Laurie for more than 40 years and he has two sons, Christopher and Jonathan. Christopher went to be with the Lord in 2008. Greg and Cathe also have five grandchildren.

In response to the deep division between generations, denominations, and races, INTV intends to tell a different story. We are a collective of young diverse worship leaders who have a heart for our generation to become Christ loving, city changing, church investing, disciple making, local missionaries.
Our backgrounds are different but our stories are the same: “Jesus intervened.” INTV is a band that appreciates the value of dynamic, diverse worship. Whether it’s contemporary, hymns, gospel, hip-hop or songs from the 90s, our worship will be marked by reverence and angst.
