Every Christian has a role to play in the Great Commission. There are three ways to get involved with our Make a Difference efforts here at C3 Trinity Dallas. Everyone can pray. Some can give. Others can go. Every year, we raise support through pledges and Faith Promises to fund our partners. We do this at our annual Vision Builders Gala , where everyone is encouraged to make a monthly pledge and/or faith promise. This commitment is to give over and above their tithes and directly supports our partners.
Your Pledge or Faith Promise supports all of our C3 Mission Partners, local and abroad.Give to Make a Difference
2020 C3 TRINITY PARTNERS & INITIATIVES
CareCenter Ministries was founded in 1986 by Pastor Eldred Sawyer and his wife Jean-Marie, with a calling to address the issues of addiction, poverty and crime through the power of the Gospel. What began with a small food pantry has now grown to become one of the leading care giving ministries in the heart of urban Dallas! This ministry takes an all-encompassing approach to healing our city through a variety of Gospel-centered programs.
His Plan was created in 2015 by Ed and Deborah Blair to change lives through mentorship, Christian education and basic needs servicing low-income, inner city children. Their first initiative, “HIS Girl”, became a bi-monthly mentorship club for 1st grade thru college age girls. Bible studies, worship times, meals and retreats are all a part of the HIS Girl outreach. Along side Youth With A Mission of Dallas, His Plan leads a mentorship meeting for young mothers and married women in East Dallas called “Women of the Word” aka “WOW!” Additionally, HIS Plan assists young nonprofits and small churches in their development through consulting, planning resources and financial assistance. Some of the beneficiaries of their efforts include YWAM Dallas, Left In America Organization and Junius Heights Baptist Church.
Youth With A Mission, also known as “YWAM” is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to reaching and serving the youth of the world. The Dallas chapter, simply known as YWAM Dallas, is located in East Dallas and has been ingrained in the community since it was pioneered in 1992 by David Funke and a team of fellow missionaries. From their humble beginnings in an east Dallas home, purchased for the grand total of $1, ministry programs have grown to involve hundreds of young people in a variety of groups that meet weekly and on special occasions throughout the year. Their efforts include afterschool programs and summer camps for elementary and high school age children, a discipleship home for young men in addition to facilitating outreach teams sent to Dallas from around the globe!
UGANDA | JANUARY 1-10
Our Uganda team had an amazing time serving the South Sudanese refugee churches in northern Uganda alongside Africa Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries (ALARM). This team helped lead three youth training workshops impacting more than 200 students. They also preached in a local refugee church, ministered through music and held a youth choir contest that was attended by more than 400 locals. In addition, the team provided more than 600 nutritious meals for refugee youths along with Bibles and clothing. Several music students from Wheaton College joined the team on this trip and helped lead music workshops and capture the sounds of refugee church choirs whose recordings will be used to help raise funds for future ministry in these same refugee camps.
“We are so thankful for Trinity’s prayers and support for this trip!” – Team leaders Larry & Julie Lyons
SPAIN | JUNE 6-15
The Camino de Santiago is a spiritual pilgrimage for many and an opportunity for us!

Over 70 nations are represented on this pilgrimage allowing us the opportunity to share God’s love with the world as we walk along this historic trail! You are invited to come with us as we share the love of Jesus with everyone God brings across our path. We will minister one-on-one as well as through public times of worship all while our own faith is stretched and we experience personal growth.

GUATEMALA | JULY 5-11
A small team of C3 Trinity members will partner with Elevate Coffee Trading and local Guatemalan faith-based organizations to engage in life altering ministry to village families working at the Rio Colorado coffee farm near Palencia, outside of Guatemala City. It is estimated that one in twenty children in the village die before their fifth birthday due to water born illnesses. This team is going into several family homes on the coffee farm to supply and install eco-water filters to provide clean, sanitary water and eco-stoves to reduce smoke inhalation during in-home cooking. Along with these life altering appliances we will bring the life-changing news of Jesus Christ to every family we connect with through our efforts. The new stoves and water filters are outward representations of the fire of the Holy Spirit and Living Water that Christ has given us to share with them. As a part of this adventure we will also have the opportunity to learn more about how coffee is grown and harvested at its origin and we’ll enjoy a free day in Antigua. This is guaranteed to be a fun and fulfilling trip that will make a lasting impact on the farming families as well as the participants!
The approximate cost for this trip is $1,800. For even more information contact Matthew Rowland.
BERLIN | JULY 16-27
Are you interested in something that will radically change your outlook on life? Do you hunger to see more of what God can do through you? Are you eager to see people hear the good news, encounter Christ, and be healed & set free from bondage? This trip is not limited to those who are experienced and comfortable with sharing their faith, it is open to any who are willing to step out and depend more on Christ than themselves. If you have something deep inside that longs to overcome fear and say “here am I, send me,” I would suggest that your time is now. You will be surprised at what He can do through a willing vessel!
