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/ If you would like to know more about the Mercy Street Movement please visit our website mercystreetdallas.org #jointhemovement #itsanewday

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 are a group of Christians who desire to see God glorified and the communities in Dallas, Texas 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.

Season of Transformation 2020 - Meet Courtney

As we pause to celebrate all the Lord has done this year, we’d like to introduce you to Courtney Brown. Courtney is special to us. As a 4th grader, he was matched with his Mentor, Adrian. In 6th grade he began playing baseball with Mercy Street Sports. Now, as an adult, Courtney volunteers as a coach. In Courtney’s words: “I get to be a mentor to my entire team like Adrian was for me.”

Check out the video to hear his story!

Meet Caroline and her mentee, Emily. They recently got to see each other for the first time since March!

They’ve been communicating mostly through FaceTime but were excited to finally see each other!

We’ve been inspired by all the innovative ways mentors stay connected with their mentees but nothing beats seeing your people in person!

I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.

Psalm 86:12

November is the month of thanks. At Mercy Street we must stop and take the time to say we are thankful for each family we get to serve and each volunteer and supporter that makes our ministry possible.

Whether you pray, participate, or provide for what God does through this ministry, we can’t say thank you enough.

IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances we are forced to postpone the 9th Annual Kershaw’s Challenge Baseball Camp. The camp has been rescheduled to December 12, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you are currently registered to attend or volunteer at the camp, no further action is required. If you are unable to attend due to the date change, we understand and ask that you email [email protected] to release your spot. Again, our sincerest apologies. We appreciate your patience, and hope to see you on the field December 12th!

In case you missed it, here’s a story Fox Sports ran Oct. 20 on HP’s own Clayton Kershaw (’06) and his childhood friends. It’s too good not to share again and reminds us all how the bonds and relationships formed in HP truly run deep. Game 3 of the World Series (L.A. vs. Tampa Bay) is tonight at 7 on Fox 4. Be sure to catch Game 5 on Sunday when Clayton takes the mound again for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Special thanks to FOX Sports for allowing us to share this video.

Healthy communities have healthy places for families to gather and kids to play.

Yesterday was long awaited and greatly prayed for! We’re blown away at another great Opening Day at the Mercy Street Sports Complex. We’re looking forward to another great season!

We love it when Mercy Street alum stick around!

Demarcus and Kaylene were part of class 2013.

Demarcus shared how his mentor Josh and his time in the bike shop every summer were formative for what he’s doing now; starting his own photography business!

Can’t wait to see how God continues to mold this man to serve the West Dallas community!!

Welcome Joshua Luckett to the Mercy Street team!

Joshua joins us with 8 years of experience in youth ministry, 4 of those working with under-resourced children and families. He heard of Mercy Street while working with Youth Impact, an inner-city ministry in Bryan/College Station. Joshua has a deep longing and calling from the Lord to do ministry among the marginalized and help execute cross cultural ministry. Upon arriving in the Dallas area, he said he could think of no better place to land than Mercy Street!

We are excited for Joshua to contribute healthy leadership to the Leadership Institute and come alongside Mercy Street as we expand to South Dallas. Welcome Josh to our team in the comments below!

On the first day, this young man decided to donate his mitt so that others can play.

There is no better way to start our fall leagues. Everyone deserves to play.

“I can’t wait for my boy to play in Mercy Street Sports this fall. I know he’ll be able to escape the drug violence, gangs, and all that nonsense. It’s so great to have Sports leagues who love Jesus around here”

Let's talk about GRIT.

We saw our student leaders develop grit these last few months thanks to COVID. The class of 2020 wasn't just stripped of a graduation ceremony, they were left uncertain of further schooling and job opportunities.

However, 33 students from West and South Dallas developed college & career ready skills in our summer's Leadership Institute. Everything was virtual: Bible study, job-shadowing, even college tours. We were determined to push through, TOGETHER!

"It was nice having something to participate in this summer. My friends didn't and I can see how I have grown." -Leadership Institute student

This Thursday you have the opportunity to participate in #NTXGivingDay along with millions of other North Texans! College and career readiness coaching costs $75. Your donation will go straight towards equipping and empowering our future leaders!
