About the Church Plant
Adam Griffin, currently the Spiritual Formation pastor at the Dallas Northway campus, will be the lead pastor of Eastside Community Church. Please pray for Adam, his wife, Chelsea, and their three boys: Oscar, Gus and Theodore.
In 2017, the Lord put a surprising, obvious and exciting call on Adam’s heart—to start a new church on the east side of Dallas, a place he and his family live in and love dearly. This area lies east of Central Expressway/US-75, with White Rock Lake roughly at the center.
The name of the church, “Eastside Community Church,” communicates their commitment to those neighborhoods and the people who live there. The mission of Eastside is to “Love One God. Love All People. Make Disciples Everywhere.” This mission shapes the core values of the church, and they hope these values will shape the culture and ministry of Eastside in profound ways.
Eastside hopes to launch in late 2018 or early 2019. They expect to have a soft launch of monthly worship gatherings along with local Bible studies and small groups starting in August 2018. While there isn’t a location yet to gather for regular worship, they are praying for a solution and are eager for the Lord to provide the right place that suits their mission and membership.
How you can get involved:
- Sign up for Eastside’s newsletter.
- Give to the church.
- Join their launch team.
- Pray that the Lord will cultivate the soil of East Dallas for people to hear and believe the gospel.
- Pray for spiritual protection and wisdom for Eastside’s leadership.
- Pray for financial provision.
- Pray for a facility where the church can gather and worship.
