A few testimonies of those whom Overlook Ministries has helped to find God. Through the Word of God, these men and women have overcome life-controlling behaviors, and now they strive to help others do the same.
Phil was a broken man we met on the streets of Cocoa. Just released from prison—but still locked up in his heart—he was living a life of bondage that was bad … perhaps worse than his life in prison. He came to one of our Overlook on the Streets meetings. He sat with a sad, empty face as we shared the Word of God … and the Lord spoke to him. “He came to heal the broken-hearted.” Phil received the Word personally and cried out to the Lord for help. Before then, Phil had felt that there was no hope for him and was planning to end his life. But that day, God touched his life and turned it right side up—and from there, God cleaned his soul and healed it from the inside out.

“I love Jesus and I love Overlook Ministries! After 42 years of daily drinking and pot smoking, I finally surrendered my life to God in 2004. While attending East Coast Christian Center, I learned about Overlook Ministries and volunteered to bring clothes and toiletries to the Saturday meeting at the Cocoa Library. Since then, they have become my family. Pastors Nick and Dorothy are my mentors, best friends and immediate family. My involvement with Overlook has helped me stay sober and build my relationship with Jesus. My dream is to have a permanent place for our men where they can learn to be functional through Jesus.”
Michael Ross is the ex-leader of the Bad Boys street gang in Cocoa, Florida in Brevard County. Michael was a dead man walking—until the spirit of God set him free. We met him on the streets of Cocoa, where the enemy had used him for years to destroy—not just the city, but even worse—the men and women who he controlled with the drugs he sold. Now, as a part of Overlook Ministries and with the help of Jesus and His powerful Word, Michael wants to help rebuild and restore what he once lived to tear down.
Overlook Ministries is funded through private donations of community partners and friends who believe in our ministry. We are currently seeking new financial partners in the expansion of our Bible training center to meet a greater need than we can currently accommodate. There are lives in the balance. The ripples created in these circumstances push on in families and communities for decades, either in healing or in pain.
The need is real, the time in now, lives are at stake.
Please consider becoming a ‘Lifesaver Partner’ if you have a heart and the means to help.

Pastors Nick and Dorothy Mounts were called into full-time street ministry in Dayton, Ohio in 1993. Personal tragedy struck in 1996, however, with the loss of their son to an automobile accident. He had been hit and killed by a drunk driver.
In coping with their loss, they moved to FL and found a renewed passion for ministering to the overlooked. Since 1998, they have been faithfully serving Brevard County with the help of the Overlook Ministries Board and the support of caring community partners.
