Mobilizing Love Ministries (we just call it Mobilizing Love) is staffed primarily by Rev. Colleen Darraugh and Shelly Torres-West, partners in ministry and life. While their home base is in North Texas, they may be found traveling the country in their RV mobilizing Love wherever they go. Be sure to check out our events. You never know, they just might have a Mobilizing Love “pop-up” event near you!
