Welcome to Central Commons

The mission of Central Commons is to work in community to extend the fellowship of Christ Jesus into every part of Dallas by perpetually incubating the next generation of churches. The means by which this mission is executed is the operation of the centrally located church in Dallas inhabited by a variety worshipping communities at a time, as well as other partners who contribute to the creation of a vibrant community that reflects the nature of Dallas.


We seek to honor the legacy of the congregation of Central Christian Church (c 1863) by extending its amazing work of gathering people from around North Texas, working as partners to experience and offer transformation to all who would come.

This campus currently serves hundreds of people from all walks of life who long for a safe place of welcome. From creatives making art and music to multiple church communities gathering for worship, from schools serving people of all abilities to recovery groups seeking restoration, and from wellness practitioners to social entrepreneurs, Central Commons provides a place for the community to gather.

ALL of this is happening ON THE SAME CAMPUS, AT THE SAME TIME, where amazing folks cross paths, interact, and learn from and with each other, thereby giving a glimpse of heaven on earth.
