Mercy Street Dallas

Mentorship - Discipleship - Leadership

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 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.

Mission: Build Christian Leaders to Build a Better West Dallas!

This month's book recommendation is: Just Mercy written by Bryan Stevenson. Just Mercy is a powerful true story about the transformative power of mercy. It follows the story of Stevenson as a young lawyer and one of his most formative cases. The case of Walter McMillian, a man wrongfully accused of a crime that he didn't commit and sentenced to death row. As a result, Stevenson's views on justice and mercy would be radically changed forever.

January is national mentoring month! To celebrate we wanted to highlight one of our alumni mentors Melissa Nash and her relationship with her mentee, Diamond!

Mercy Street loves highlighting not only the transformation of the mentees in our program, but the transformation of the mentors as well!

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,” He shares. “The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14) If you, like our Savior, believe that children embody the kingdom of heaven, will you consider supporting the children of Mercy Street before December 30th?

Merry Christmas to you and your family! As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we are grateful for the Christ-centered mutually transforming relationships taking place in West and South Dallas through our sports, mentoring, and leadership institute.

From allowing an athlete to experience mentorship through coaching, to helping sustain Christian programming for parents, to providing a summer of workplace readiness training for one high schooler, there’s plenty of ways for you to give this season!

Mercy Street would like to thank the Moozie Foundation for their most generous gift to help support our Leadership Institute.

Mercy Street launched 16 years ago with a simple idea: to build lifelong mutually-transforming relationships between the neighbors of West Dallas and greater Dallas. We have seen Christ-centered friendships transform challenging circumstances such as economic hardships, historical division, and systemic indifference. Learn more at
