Project transformation


Mission of the Month - May

Project Transformation Rio Texas began organizing in early 2014 using the model of a United Methodist-based ministry that has recruited college-age interns to serve urban and rural neighborhoods in and around Dallas, Texas, since 1998. Several leaders from the Rio Grande and Southwest Texas conferences of the United Methodist Church began meeting to learn more about the mission and ministry of Project Transformation. These conversations and visits to Project Transformation in Dallas later that summer led to a vision of establishing this ministry in San Antonio, Austin, and eventually the Lower Rio Grande Valley of South Texas in the coming years. As the two conferences were in the process of becoming a “bold new conference” (Rio Texas Conference), the organizers believed that the work of Project Transformation could be a practical learning application in living out the conference’s core vision of uniting peoples, transforming communities, developing leaders, and revitalizing congregations and beginning new faith communities.
