Storyline began as a dream in the hearts of two families, the Kisers and Porches. They dreamed of a church that lived for the disconnected and downtrodden people in Dallas. These couples teamed up with several churches and organizations that believed in this dream as well: CHRIST Church Irving, The Hills Church, and Mission Alive.
After a time of prayer and discernment, Storyline Christian Community was planted in the heart of Uptown Dallas during 2008. Since that time, Storyline has grown and stretched as we follow God’s lead and connect with new people in new places. The heartbeat of our church initially took place in house churches that met weekly and then all gathered together monthly. As new house churches were started, the locus of Storyline shifted east and north from Uptown.
Over time, Storyline’s missional communities have begun to organize around various neighborhoods and networks such as the Junius Heights neighborhood, Vickery Meadow immigrants, and neighborhoods in central Richardson. Today, Storyline dreams of being a red-hot center for mission in which followers of Jesus live out the Good News in all the nooks and crannies of greater Dallas culture. We do so by listening to God together and then trying to put what we hear into practice.
