Today we had our first book discussion on Dr. John Perkins’ work- Making Neighborhoods Whole: A Handbook on Christian Community Development. Jill Harmeyer Collum, our Director of Mentoring, led our time together today on the subject of Relocation. Very fitting for her as she has lived in West Dallas for the last 7 years. She really blessed and inspired us today! #incarnationalministry
Please help us welcome Mr. David Hatteberg
to the Mercy Street Family!

David is the newest addition to our team. He will join our Development Department with a focus on connecting local chuches, businesses, and organizations to the work God is doing at Mercy Street.

He earned his Bachelor's Degree at Texas A&M University and studied Nonprofit Management at the Bush School of Government and Public Service. Bryan/College Station was not only where he pursued his education but where he felt a calling to be a part of God-honoring community development work.

Since then, he has been working and volunteering with nonprofits serving under-resourced communities for almost 10 years. He previously worked for B/CS Habitat for Humanity where he built church partnerships, connected with businesses, and stewarded donor relationships.

David is married to his beautiful wife and best friend Kristin.

As a Dallas native and passionate storyteller, he is excited to share how God is working through Mercy Street and inspire others to be a part of the movement.
Mercy Street is excited to announce that Pastor Errol Coner will join the Mercy Street movement as a member of the board.

Errol is a graduate of Dallas Seminary, engaged in Doctoral studies, and currently serves as the Executive Pastor of Concord Baptist Church. Pastor Coner and his wife Gretchen have 3 adult children. We are ecstatic to see how God is going to use Errol to help the rest of the board guide His work at Mercy Street.

You can learn more about Errol http://mondaymorningchurch.com/errol-coner/

Sports - Mentorship - Leadership

www.mercystreetdallas.org Mercy Street is a mentoring program for children's grades 4-12. We partner with schools in the 75212 area code, local churches & business' in the Dallas area.

We strive every day to empower the next generation of Christian leaders to transform their communities. Believing youth are the greatest asset for the future of their community and transformation best occurs in the context of relationship, we value people over programs to see lasting change realized. Everything we do exists to cultivate mutually transforming relationships with inner-city youth through Christian Mentorship

We believe true and lasting change will be brought about by the residents, particularly the children, of this community. Mercy Street's hope is to raise a new generation of leaders from the community to be the change agents of tomorrow. Sometimes an infusion of hope and help from the outside is all that is needed to make a monumental difference. That is where our mentors, coaches, and volunteers come in. They are tasked with being an encourager, friend, and advisor to the children over the course of many years. Mercy Street also seeks to be "incarnational" in our ministry efforts, meaning we relocate to the place where we minister in order to put flesh on the redemptive message of the gospel. Whether a physical relocation (like most of our staff) or a mental relocation (like most of our mentors), we invite everyone to take on the cares and concerns of the community as their own. We believe this is part of “loving our neighbors as ourselves.”

At Mercy Street, we prayerfully work together to push back against the thorns and thistles that have taken root in West Dallas so that God's Kingdom reign might be evident. Urban decay points to spiritual decay. As Christians it is our delightful responsibility to enter into the dark places of the world and let the light of Christ shine. Light always repels darkness. Join the movement and shine the light of Christ in our community.

Operating as usual

One of our values here at Mercy Street is "Incarnational: Be Present John 1:14". We want our kids and families involved to be pointed to Christ.

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came form the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)

In addition to changing the look of the main Mercy Street logo, we've added logos for each of our programs!

Each logo brings individuality to the program it serves while still maintaining the over-arching Mercy Street theme.

The Mercy Street 'M'

"What's up with that new 'M'?"

We like to think of the 'M' in our new logo as Mercy Street. Everything we do can be summarized by our three programs: sports, mentoring, leadership. Mercy Street wouldn't be the same without each one of these—it's who we are!

We're humbled and thankful to serve the communities of Dallas through these three programs.

We've got BIG news! We're thrilled to announce the new look of Mercy Street!!

For 18 years we've served the community of West Dallas. In recent years, we've begun serving South Dallas and the Vickery Meadow area, as well. What started with our one-on-one mentoring program, Mercy Street has grown to include our "Big 3" staple programs—sports, mentoring, and leadership.

We're humbled by how the Lord continues to bless us and those we serve and can't wait to see what He has in store for the next 18 years.

This year's Leadership Intensive has been a BLAST. Over the past couple of months, our interns have learned the intricacies of small business, including marketing. Seen here, our Jr. Interns are pitching their small business ideas to a group of business "sharks".

In the Mercy Street Leadership program one of our goals is to ensure workforce readiness for students as they prepare for life after high school. We can't wait to see what this group of students accomplishes next!

Our Story

We are a group of Christians who desire to see God glorified and the neighborhood of West Dallas transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Believing transformation best occurs in the context of relationship, we value people over programs. Therefore, we intentionally engage in mutually-transforming relationships with the residents of West Dallas, working with them to bring hope and healing to West Dallas.

We believe true and lasting change will be brought about by the residents, particularly the children, of this community. Mercy Street's hope is to raise a new generation of leaders from the community to be the change agents of tomorrow. Sometimes an infusion of hope and help from the outside is all that is needed to make a monumental difference. That is where our mentors, coaches, and volunteers come in. They are tasked with being an encourager, friend, and advisor to the children over the course of many years.

Mercy Street also seeks to be "incarnational" in our ministry efforts, meaning we relocate to the place where we minister in order to put flesh on the redemptive message of the gospel. Whether a physical relocation (like most of our staff) or a mental relocation (like most of our mentors), we invite everyone to take on the cares and concerns of the community as their own. We believe this is part of “loving our neighbors as ourselves.”

At Mercy Street, we prayerfully work together to push back against the thorns and thistles that have taken root in West Dallas so that God's Kingdom reign might be evident. Urban decay points to spiritual decay. As Christians it is our delightful responsibility to enter into the dark places of the world and let the light of Christ shine. Light always repels darkness.

Join the movement and shine the light of Christ in our community.
