The Porch is a weekly gathering of 3,500+ 20 and 30-somethings in Dallas, Texas. We come together to celebrate the good news of Jesus, learn from The Bible, and seek to impact the world around us.
Why The Porch? In generations past, the front porch served many purposes. Today, especially in Dallas, the front porch is a rare sight thanks to high-rises and city life, so we changed that.
The Porch is a place of community
Historically, the porch was a place where people would gather, hang out together, and get to know each other. Our Porch is too.
The Porch is a place of authenticity
The porch used to be a place where you dated. Unlike dating in the privacy of a movie theater or the back seat of the car, on the porch you dated in the light. The Porch is a place to date and live life in full transparency and freedom.
The Porch is a place where you look out to the city
The porch used to be a place to look out into the neighborhood. The Porch is a place where we can look out into the city, see the needs, and meet them.
The Porch is an entryway
The porch was an entry way into the home. In the same way, The Porch is an entry way into the Church. We encourage young adults to be fully devoted followers of Christ.
Through messages, conversations, and the lives of hundreds of volunteers who make The Porch happen each Tuesday, people are being changed and becoming agents of change throughout our city and the world. We are constantly humbled by the way God continues to work in our midst and change lives. Our generation wants to be a part of something that matters. We are a group of young adults seeking to take the message that matters most to the corners of our city and the ends of the earth. If you're in Dallas, come and see The Porch Tuesday nights at 7PM at our home church, Watermark Community Church.
