Shifting Shadows


Website Cover update.png

Rev. Herman Mendoza currently serves as an Associate Pastor and Director of PowerHouse Kids Ministry, at Promise Ministries International in New York City. He is also one of the speakers for The 4/14 Window Movement, a global initiative to raise a new generation of children, ages 4 to 14, to be the leaders of tomorrow through Christ. He speaks at conferences, schools, and churches around the world spreading the message of hope, faith, grace, and redemption. Pastor Mendoza is a community leader and collaborates with the New York Police Academy through his youth program to educate young people about police culture. Pastor Mendoza’s memoir, Shifting Shadows: How a New York Drug Lord Found Freedom in the Last Place He Expected, has been published with Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group. It details the story of his life, as a lost young man who after experiencing the lowest point in his life—convicted for drug trafficking and sentenced to prison—found forgiveness and a new life in Jesus Christ. These are truly milestone markings of a life transformed by the relentless love of God.

"To spend 5 minutes with Herman Mendoza now, it would be challenging to imagine him spending five years in Federal Prison dealing with illicit drugs. Since our paths crossed years ago when I was invited to join him at the United Nations as a guest speaker, I have witnessed his efforts in reaching young people to Christ and his commitment to impact our society with his testimony. In this work, "Shifting Shadows", we can grasp the essence of God's unwavering grace."
