Mercy Street Sports is proud to host the largest opening day of the Spring season with over 200 kids ready to play baseball and over 600 kids poised to play soccer. This celebration comes at the perfect time, as the organization kicks off the recognition of the twentieth year of service to the Dallas area.
"One thing we've witnessed over the past two decades we've served the West Dallas area is that sports, particularly youth sports, has the ability to bring together a community unlike anything else," said Carlton Oby, President and CEO of Mercy Street. "What sets Mercy Street Sports apart is while we introduce young athletes to the fundamentals of sports, we simultaneously introduce them to the fundamentals of the Christian faith. I'm proud of the methods we've developed to build up healthy kids and healthy families. Mercy Street is truly a movement of God's people working together for His glory and the good of our city."
Headquartered in the historically, under-resourced area of West Dallas, Mercy Street has ministered to the community since 2003, while more recently expanding programs into South Dallas. Mercy Street Sports reaches over 1600 young athletes, and their families, annually. Mercy Street exists to cultivate mutually transforming relationships with inner-city youth through Christian mentorship. Learn more at mercystreetdallas.org , or contact .
