Founded in 2003, Mercy Street grew out of the desire to see a small pocket of poverty in Dallas – West Dallas – transformed by the gospel. 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.
