TO BRING DFW CHURCHES AND CHRISTIAN LEADERS TOGETHER IN A COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY BASED ON NEXT GEN RESEARCH AND A COMMON AGENDA

What We Are About

Our vision is to join with you to  see the prayer of Jesus answered. 

Unity doesn't happen without you. The issues plaguing the DFW metroplex are complex and multi-layered and the needle is not moving. The Church is well equipped to tackle these complexities and all of their dynamics. But it's going to require  working together. Leaders like you who pastor people or lead Christian organizations possess incredible potential to advance God's Kingdom in the DFW area.

YOUR PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROCESS: 

working together requires trusting relationships and common agreement

Better Together

  • Leaders come together to agree on a common challenge.
  • We research is initiated to determine how best to address the challenge.
