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. New City Fellowship serves refugees, immigrants, and longtime Texans in Northeast Dallas, Garland, and Richardson with the hope that God would unify the nations in the grace of Jesus Christ.

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:

  • For the nations

    For the Nations Refugee Outreach was started by NsP members Cameron and Kaitlyn Mullens to serve the growing population of international refugees who have settled in Dallas due to persecution or other displacement from their native homes. FtNRO offers education and Gospel hope to thousands.

  • 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 underserved neighborhoods. One of their locations is right next door to the Theater where we meet.

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, a member of NsP, was ordained by the North Texas Presbytery in August 2009 and now serves as a missionary in Cambodia with Mission to the World. Since moving to 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 of Cambodia focusing their ministry on church planting and student outreach in Angkjeay village. For more information go to their blog: Life In Cambodia.


If you would like to assist the Smiths with financial support 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 and Ellen Buerger met while attending college in Omaha, Nebraska, and married in 2001. In 2007 John graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary, and in in 2012, and then served on the pastoral staff of NsP. It was during this season of ministry that the Lord laid it on their hearts to adopt a little girl from Bulgaria. After visiting with the MTW Bulgaria team in 2015 and 2017 in connection with this effort, they brought home their new daughter—and a calling to serve the people of Bulgaria.


Believing strongly that the Church historically always benefits when theological education, pastoral ministry, and community development are held closely together, John and Ellen plan to serve on the MTW Bulgaria 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. Please pray that the Lord’s grace will be made known in both their ministry and their weakness.

the Kunkel family - Mexico

In the spring of 2010, NsP members Thomas and Sandra Kunkel embarked on a very unique journey that took them - via a 1976 Volkswagon Westfalia camper van - from Dallas all the way to the southern end of South America. After spending much of the summer in Guadalajara, Mexico (Sandra's hometown) they headed south all the way to the tip of South America visiting potential ministry sites along the way.


It became clear that God was calling them to return to Guadalajara where Thomas now serves as pastor at Cristo Redentor - Christ the Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
