local Partners

church planting

As part of the North Texas Presbytery we are supportive of church planting efforts throughout our region. More directly, we have the joy of partnering with our friends in their efforts to establish Christ-centered churches in their communities nearby. El Buen Pastor seeks to preach the Gospel, be a Christ-centered community, and extend the kingdom of God among our Spanish-speaking neighbors in Northwest Dallas.

PAra-church ministries

We are grateful to God that Dallas abounds with many excellent ministries that operate alongside the local church. These organizations specialize in certain areas of ministry that are vital in the effort to bring the kingdom of God to bear on our community. We love and support these friends with our money and our time:

  • thrive women's clinic

    Thrive Women's Clinic provides support and answers to women who face unexpected pregnancies through several locations in East, Central, and West Dallas. We support and advocate for this promotion of life.

  • union gospel mission

    The Union Gospel Mission has been "serving the last, least, lost and lonely" in Dallas since 1949. A number of our church families have helped with this great gospel effort for years. We encourage you do the same.

  • casa del lago

    Casa del Lago offers many programs to engage and enrich the lives of our Spanish-speaking neighbors with the Gospel in the Bachman Lake neighborhood of West Dallas.

  • behind every door

    Behind Every Door seeks to bring the fullness of the love of Jesus to support personal transformation in under served neighborhoods.

national partners

student ministry

We are committed to reaching and equipping our students with the Gospel, and we're delighted to have these two faithful and significant national partners in that effort.

  • Reformed university fellowship

    RUF has been sending ordained, seminary trained ministers to college campuses for over 40 years. This is one of our most important and effective evangelistic efforts nationwide as RUF serves on over 100 campuses coast to coast. NsP directly supports RUF chapters in our region including SMU, TCU, Baylor, University of North Texas, UT-Tyler, Texas Tech as well as RUF-International chapters on the campuses of SMU, UT-Dallas, and Texas A&M.

  • reformed youth ministries

    Also for over 40 years, RYM has been providing youth conferences across the country as well as resources and training in youth ministry for local churches. The Middle School and High School students of NsP have been attending RYM conferences for over 10 years.

Global partners

the Smith family - Cambodia

Luke Smith was ordained by the North Texas Presbytery in 2009 after completing a pastoral internship at NsP. He now serves as a missionary in Cambodia with MTW. In Cambodia, Luke met and married Sokha, a native Cambodian who came to Christ as a teenager in a Christian orphanage. Luke and Sokha have two children, Hannah and Asa. They work in the countryside focusing their ministry on church planting and student outreach in Angkjeay village. For more information go to their blog: Life In Cambodia.

To become a financial partner for their work, checks can be sent to: Mission to the World, PO Box 116284 Atlanta, GA 30368-6284 with "Luke Smith - 17118" in the memo line. Or you may donate online at MTW. In the search line type either 17118 or Smith to locate Luke's donation link.

the buerger family - Bulgaria

John Buerger served as an Associate Pastor at NsP for 6 years before accepting a call to serve with the MTW Bulgaria team. He and his wife, Ellen, along with their two daughters - the younger of which they had adopted from Bulgaria - moved to Sophia to join the team in 2019.

Believing strongly that the Church historically always benefits when theological education, pastoral ministry, and community development are held closely together, John and Ellen serve on the team in Sofia primarily in the areas of developing the Elias Riggs Center for Biblical Studies and coming alongside Bulgarian families with special needs children. They hope to be able to impact future Bulgarian pastors and their families to develop gospel-driven ministries and home lives as they serve the Bulgarian Evangelical Union of Churches.

the Kunkel family - Mexico

After nearly a decade serving the Lord in Guadalajara as a pastor in a local church, Thomas is now seeking clarity for a new call in ministry. He and Sandra are grateful for the deep love and care that the NSP family has given to them over these past years and are hopeful for continued ministry together. 

Monica Jones - Wycliffe

Monica (Moss) Jones studied linguistics at the University of Florida and now works as a Translation Consultant for Wycliffe Bible Translators. For two years she lived in Mozambique where she worked alongside pastors to translate the gospel of John. In 2016, she moved to Dallas to pursue a Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis and Linguistics. During that time, she became a member of NSP. Now she has returned to her home state of North Carolina where she has married (Christopher) and taken on new projects with Wycliffe. Her focus is in southern Africa where she consults with - and periodically travels to meet with - translators as they seek to make Scripture available in the languages of that region.
