A song that is dear to us each Christmas season declares, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” This month we will gather with family and friends with cheerful hearts. We will emulate the generosity of our God who gave to us the greatest gift of all, Christ our Lord, by giving gifts to our friends and family.
Today, as we reflect on all God’s gifts to us this season, we are thankful for the gift of your continued support of our work with World Impact in Dallas. Your gifts to the ministry of World Impact along with other partners in the gospel allowed have allowed us to to provide help to families during the Christmas Season.
You know that our heart is not only to share Christ during Christmas, but year-round through Bible clubs, church planting, and leadership training for indigenous leaders through The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) of Dallas.
Your prayers, partnership, and financial support allow us to be about the business of serving mankind every day in South Dallas. Simply put, we could not empower the urban poor without your gifts. When you think of us this Christmas time, please pray.
Pray that the joy experienced on Christmas morning will be experienced every day in the hearts of the people we serve together. Pray that God will continue to grant us grace and the strength we need to do for all that is before us today and all that He has placed on our hearts for the future. There are many needs and much work to do, so we will need many more like you to come alongside us.
As always, we are grateful for your continued prayerful and financial support. Together we can empower the urban poor.
For His Glory in the City,
Director, World Impact Dallas
Thank you so much for your prayers and support in this time of transition. We greatly appreciate your support and the ways you lift us up to the Lord, especially in the midst of a busy holiday season. We wouldn't be able to do what we do without you!
Recently, we announced the appointment of our new CEO and President, Rev. Efrem Smith. We are excited to have him on the team and for him to lead us in this new season of our ministry. We will be sharing with you all a few words from Efrem, as well as a video soon! In the meantime, if you'd like to learn more about Efrem, you can visit this page.
In addition to Efrem's appointment, World Impact has recently undergone a restructuring of our ministry leadership, in order to better serve and empower the urban poor of America. In an effort to more effectively reach those whom we serve and address the unique situations of each region, World Impact has shifted our ministry into a more regionally-based structure. Each ministry region (West Coast, Midwest, and East Coast) is supervised by one of our Regional Vice Presidents, who work alongside our President and Vice Presidents in supervising World Impact's various ministries throughout the nation.
Within each ministry region, there is one "hub" city, from which the regions are run, as well as "spoke" cities, which are outlying ministry locations within each region. If you'd like to learn more about the Executive Directors and City Directors who oversee these minsitry locations, you can visit this Ministry Directors page, which is under construction but will soon be up-to-date.
Please note: Our ministries at various locations throughout urban America are still in full swing. We just wanted to inform you about a few leadership and structural revisions, meant to facilitate even more church planting efforts among the urban poor and make us more effective in our urban ministry.
Again, thank you for your prayers and support in this season of transition. We appreciate your encouraging words and the ways in which you enable us to empower the urban poor. Check out our latest bulletin update to find out more about how you can support World Impact and our ministries! We look forward to sharing with you more about how the Lord is moving in power!
Grace and Peace to you and yours!
Happy Giving Tuesday!
Giving Tuesday is a national campaign to curb against buying holidays during this Christmas season and a chance to celebrate giving (instead of receiving). So, as you consider giving today and to what organizations you will give, will you consider our ministry and expanding efforts to empower the urban poor?
