The Mission

Achieve Progress Against the Cities Challenges

The mission of Movement Day Greater Dallas (MDGD) is to unite the body of Christ around a common purpose in order to achieve measureable progress against the greatest spiritual, social, and humanitarian challenges facing the city. MDGD will also serve as a model and catalyst for gospel movements worldwide.

Consider these sobering statistics:

  • 64,600 persons per week seek help from food pantries or soup kitchens
  • 6,000 runaways annually
  • One out of three runaways is lured into sex trafficking within 48 hours
  • The fastest growing religious preference is “None”
  • Largest refugee population in American
  • 52% of students in South Dallas never graduated High School

The Vision

Develop a Strategy that'll have an Impact

Our plan is to convene and collaborate with the faith community from all quadrants of Greater Dallas. We are also partnering with The New York City Leadership Center (NYCLC) and drawing upon the experience and intellectual capital of Dr. Mac Pier, founder and CEO, The NYCLC and Dr. Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

The strategy is to identify like-minded Dallas leaders who desire to design, mobilize and invest in a long – term strategy that will impact Dallas. The result will be the creation of specific plans to accelerate or incubate best practices to address the issues facing the city and to serve as the focus of the combined efforts of hundreds of organizations throughout Greater Dallas.

Movement Day Greater Dallas will be conducted in collaboration with Movement Day New York City held every October and hosting leaders from around the world.


  • I am honored to be part of MDGD. It encourages like-minded pastors, mission agency leaders, marketplace leaders, & governmental leaders to engage each other. What we do together here will not only impact Dallas, but will create a template for other world class cities to engage the culture with the gospel.

  • In order to create change in communities, it is important for individuals from diverse backgrounds & views to come together to discover, learn & share their experiences. I look forward to seeing God’s people come together (at MDGD) & use their faith as the foundation for building an inspired future!

  • In a fast-paced world that focuses more on events with immediate results and shallow gratification, I count it a joy to have been involved in what will become a great movement of the church to impact a community for the cause of Christ and certain to reap Kingdom benefits.

  • Over 30 years ago, Theresa and I prayed for a great movement of God in the Dallas area as we started our ministry at Country Bible Church. What an honor and privilege it is to partner with area churches and business people to cooperate with God’s Spirit as He draws us together to transform Dallas for Christ.
