Our mission is to engage people to fight poverty and promote justice. Our vision is a church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, reducing poverty in Dallas and around the world.

Everyone likes to break records: First to the moon! Fastest mile run! Farthest touchdown pass! But when it comes to poverty, Dallas has broken a few records we’d like to reverse. We have the highest child poverty rate among 10 of the largest U.S. cities, and our homeless rates are trending upward! There are more people living in poverty in Dallas today than there are people living in Plano.

This has to stop. Because no one deserves to live in poverty.

What if our church could change the story? What could happen in Dallas and around the world if we joined forces with our partners to solve problems like unemployment, healthcare, and affordable housing? With our collective time, talent and treasure, we can fight poverty – and break records we’re proud of!
