Vision Builders

“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”

— Habakkuk 2:2-3

Care Center Ministries

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

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 Dallas

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!

Afrika Wa Yesu

The focus of Afrika Wa Yesu is to teach and train Mozambican pastors and leaders to reach their own nation through evangelism and church planting. While soul winning is their primary purpose, the ministry also runs a dental clinic with a mobile unit reaching into the villages rarely touched by the outside world. A Business Skills Training School is also run by the ministry, giving many Mozambicans the necessary skills to serve their communities and support their families.

Chris and Deborah Maas work with Afrika wa Yesu in northern Mozambique. Chris runs the Vocational Centre, teaching young Mozambicans trade skills so they can support their families and serve their communities. Deborah assists him and also home-schools their 3 children: Gabriel, Ashira, and Makayla. They both work closely with Jeff & Nicky Reetz at the Bible School in Nacala, and frequently the Bible school graduates will go on to graduate from the vocational program.

Cultivate Leadership

Cultivate Leadership was established in 2010 by Kevin and Lisa Evans for the purpose of growing leaders for global impact. The focus of this ministry is to reach, equip and mentor the next generation of spiritual leaders for urban church planting, beginning in China and into other regions of East Asia.  In addition to leading Cultivate, Kevin and Lisa are pastors at Shanghai West International Fellowship in Shanghai, China.

Victory World Missions

Ginger Carman and her late husband, Dr. Rob Carman, founded Victory World Missions with a mission to go into the world to help and assist thousands of pastors and leaders worldwide. Ginger and Rob were in ministry together for over 41 years before his recent passing.

Missions have always been the heartbeat and passion of the Carmans, and that did not change with the passing of her husband. The work of Victory World Missions continues as Ginger oversees projects in countries such as Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Bulgaria, Mexico and Papua New Guinea. These exciting projects include building a wall around a church building in Mozambique, a roof project in Bulgaria, an orphanage in Botswana, and food outreaches in Mexico. The most recent project is the construction and completion of a nurses’ quarters in the nation of Papua New Guinea.

Ginger and Rob became members of Trinity Dallas in 2002, and Pastor Rob was a frequent guest speaker in our services. We are excited to partner with Victory World Missions and their vision – building on the legacy of Dr. Carman and the continued work of his precious wife, Ginger.
