New Church Starts

We continue to identify areas to establish urban and suburban churches, ethnic congregations, traditional and nontraditional starts. You can help create "New Places for New People" in Central Texas by joining our Church Growth SHAREholder Program, which continues to be the primary funding source for new church starts.

Coffee House Faith Community 
Pastor: Jarrod Johnston, 2016-17 Path 1 Resident
Union Coffee is an innovative new church start in the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church that is seeking to reach a new generation of young people in a new season for the church. "Union cultivates the divine spark in our neighbors for the good of the city and the world it inspires through outstanding coffee, robust community and engaging cause."

Union has been going strong for three years now and has found the momentum to build new sites in new communities across the DFW area. We're hoping to bring one of those new sites into the Central Texas Conference in 2017.

In anticipation of planting this new faith community for new people, we're taking donations now to begin funding this new church start. To donate to the Coffee House Faith Community, please click here.
