Mission Waco | Mission World

In 1978, Jimmy and Janet Dorrell bought a deteriorating house in the middle of a blighted neighborhood in North Waco. Based on their understanding of incarnational ministry, they sensed their vocational call was to live among the poor and help bring “good news” through relationships and empowerment opportunities. The couple began offering children’s and teen clubs each week in their home, meeting neighbors and providing assistance to those struggling in the community.
Throughout their entire history, Mission Waco Mission World staff and volunteers have worked hard to cultivate hands-on relationships with the poor, local churches, and the community. The call to bring good news to the poor has been a driving force since day one. The desire to create a biblical base for empowering compassion is still at their core. God has birthed, blessed, and sustained this venture through the years.
Renew Church Waco partners with Mission Waco / Mission World to offer Renew Youth missional service experiences through various outreach opportunities in the Waco area.
