Church History

 

 The West Dallas Community Church was established in February of 1982 as a missions outreach church for the Dallas West Housing project primarily and the West Dallas Community in general, to meet the spiritual needs of families. Our first worship service was held February 7, 1982 in the Girls Clubhouse located at 2206 Toronto.

WDCC accepted the mission challenge presented by the West Dallas Housing projects. The church strived to meet the spiritual and social needs of the community. The ability to meet the needs of the community was strengthen through the formation of the West Dallas Steering committee in May of 1984. It was formed by a group of churches that met in the Student Center of the Dallas Theological Seminary. The purpose of the committee was to be a support ministry for the West Dallas community church to raise financial support for Arrvel & Eletha Wilson as missionaries to the housing projects in West Dallas; to purchase land and build a meeting place for this inner city church; and for the church members of the supporting churches to be involved in the West Dallas community through WDCC volunteer programs.

Negotiations for the property on Canada Drive began in October of 1984. The closing deal for the land was finalized in January of 1985. The land debt was paid off in May of 1986. The construction of the building began in October of 1987 and was completed in April of 1988. Our first worship service was held in May of 1988 at our first building location.

Throughout the years of being a missions’ church our faith grew and the need to expand our ministry into the community became more visible. WDCC has been involved in the startup of various other ministries in the West Dallas Community as well as its Outreach Programs and The West Dallas Community School to meet those needs.

A capital campaign was started to help fund the building of a new school and new sanctuary in October of 2002. Through God answering prayers, the generous hearts of individuals, and our church family the WDCS opened its new doors in August of 2005, with the church’s new sanctuary opening in February of 2008. 

Embarking upon the celebration of 30 years of service for the Lord, the most important and exciting thing in the WDCC Ministry is that individuals have received Christ through all of its efforts and by discipleship and outreach ministries in the community.
