God has intentionally placed our church in Dallas so that we can reach the millions of people who live here. Whether you are reading with kids at our partner school, planting seeds at an urban farm, or serving a meal to the homeless, your time spent serving helps shape the city’s future by sharing Christ’s love with people in need.
