In The Community

Mercy Ministry - This is the outreach ministry of the church. This team has put in place a structure to help people within the church that are in need financially and look at ways to serve the community. You can help support this ministry by giving through our website Give link.

Advance Memphis — If you would like to come alongside adults who are seeking change and an opportunity to move into the work force, volunteer at Advance Memphis.  Advance needs people willing to get into relationship through a structured and directed group time. Relationship is a primary goal of this ministry as well. God will use you and change you in this process! For more information please email Amanda or visit advancememphis.org.

Advance Lunches — Join us on Wednesdays from 12-12:50 at Advance Memphis located at 769 Vance Ave. Downtown Church would like to provide lunch for the Jobs for Life class & champions every Wednesday. Sign up here if you would like to make or can bring lunch for up to 30 people.

Streets Minstries — Mentoring is a one hour per week commitment to meet a student at Streets for tutoring. It is not complicated stuff and you CAN do it! The real vision is to foster a relationship that can grow into a life changing opportunity for you and your mentee. Bringing your mentee to DPC is another extension of this relationship and opportunity for community. We believe a student ministry will be created through this effort over time. For more information contact LaToya McCutcheon or visit streetsministries.org.

Youth Leadership of Memphis: We are excited to be cutting grass again with inner-city kids. The Lord recently provided much needed funds for our ministry to continue on through the summer. Seeing the growth and maturity of these inner-city kids really encourages us as we attempt to show them what it means to work hard.
