As our name establishes, we've always dreamed of leaving a "mark" on our city by loving and serving God's people in the name of Jesus Christ. Even though our Members live, work, and serve throughout the DFW Metroplex, we have invested for years alongside many trusted ministry partners locally in South Dallas. God has continued to increase our involvement and care for our neighbors in South Dallas. In 2019, this led to the purchase of Pearl C. Anderson Middle School and the growth of a core team of lay leaders excited to be the Church in the surrounding neighborhood.
Watermark South Dallas will be a local church body that is closely connected to Watermark Dallas, but with its own campus leadership and ministry offerings tailored to best serve the local community. The South Dallas campus will offer re:generation recovery, health care, financial literacy, vocational training, youth development, and other discipleship-oriented ministries flowing through the local church. While we work to complete Phase 1 construction so that we can meet locally at Pearl C. Anderson, we have also been working to develop relationships through weekly food distribution events and using other opportunities to get to know our neighbors. In 2021, relationship developing opportunities include launching our Job Connections program, as well as visits from our Watermark Health Mobile Unit.
Phase 1 of construction continues at our South Dallas Campus. Cleanup is complete, and work is underway on the development of 24,000 square feet of space, including:
Targeted Completion: Spring 2021
The Need: $2 million to complete Phase 1
(Total cost: $7.5 million)
Scheduled Opening Date: mid-2021
