Our Story


Located in Far East Dallas, WRUMC has been a beacon for the community for over 83 years. A church rich with history and a heart for the community. Like most mid-size churches in the country, WRUMC has a lot of space, but the congregation was slowly dwindling in numbers.

In 2012, Rev. Mitchell Boone and Neil Moseley took on the task of awakening the church again. The vision was to partner with community businesses, people, and groups who would bring the community back into the church again. The goal was to let WRUMC be a place for the community and let people know they could be loved and accepted here.

Today, WRUMC has grown over 200%, a place for all people who will be loved, accepted, and a beacon for the community. The future is bright for WRUMC, and we would always like to have you visit.


Our dream is to create a community at Owenwood where our neighbors are known, heard, and invited to use their gifts to transform Far East Dallas. While we do not bring all the answers or resources to an underserved community, we are collaborating with many so our neighborhood can flourish. This is done through creative partnerships with existing nonprofits, bold initiatives born out of the dreams and talents of our neighbors, and the willingness to take risks on behalf of the Gospel. 
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is best understood in the friendships formed with strangers who are often our neighbors. Our worship focuses on intimate conversations around a meal. Our work is grounded in the relationships we continue to build with the community. Our mission is to create a space where the Spirit of God is followed and honored. Our commitment is the formation of a new faith community grounded in justice, equality, and opportunity for all who live in Far East Dallas.
