God has intentionally placed our church in Dallas so that we can reach the millions of people who live here. Whether you are planting seeds at an urban farm or serving a meal to the homeless, your time spent serving helps shape the city’s future by sharing Christ’s love with people in need. Put your gifts to use at one of our ongoing service opportunities.
The build has been cancelled, but other opportunities remain. See the opportunities at ftnro.org/volunteer.
For the Nations helps families adjust to life in the U.S. while sharing the love of Christ. They run a Kids Club, Monday–Thursday from 4–6 pm, and are in need of volunteers as the new school year has started. Volunteers choose one day to come weekly throughout the semester to help kids with homework, reading, and free play/electives.

HP Pres works with Dallas Leadership Foundation's (DLF) Youth department to mentor students in the Richardson Schools District area. Often times it only takes one encouraging adult to change the direction of persons life. Mentoring times are about listening and encouraging students to talk about issues he or she is currently facing. Mentors can meet their students when convenient to both. We look for meetings to be on regular basis with a 3-4 hour commitment per month.
