South Dallas Team

Have you ever had a conversation with a homeless person? a prostitute? crack addict? a child that has never met their father and whose mom is addicted to drugs? a person who has been incarcerated and struggling to find work now even though they have changed their ways?

These are everyday stories of many of our South Dallas friends. The community we connect with, Cornerstone Heights, is only a few miles from the Watermark Dallas campus – but it can seem a world apart.

One of the most wonderful things about South Dallas is that the longer you spend with the people there, the more you realize how similar we all are. We are all broken and in need of a Savior and biblical wisdom as we grow in our faith and walk.

We partner with Cornerstone Baptist Church and an array of ministries meant to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the community. From VBS style programs for kids, to a feeding kitchen, to the weekly womens’ Bible study, there are so many opportunities for you to be the hands and feet of Christ. And during the holidays, there are even more ways to enter this story.

Jesus told us to love the least of these for His glory and because He knew it would change us. Come join us and help change our city…and yourself.
