Why "The 635"?
- The 635 loop surrounds the city of Dallas, in which over 200,000 young adults from ages 18-35 reside; thousands of whom identify as Catholic.
- John 6:35 provides the foundation for our mission; to help quench the thirst of these thousands of Dallas-area young adults through missional discipleship. The ultimate goal is to empower young adults and their parish communities and extend this discipleship to the city of Dallas through community outreach.
The Mission of The 635
Though we may be divided by a variety of personal and social beliefs, we are united in our thirst for something bigger than ourselves. Our mission is to provide a safe, neutral space for young adults ages 18-35 to explore their faith in a new way, or even for the first time. We are a movement that seeks to quench the thirsty, young Church in Dallas.
In Spring 2019, The 635 meets January 29th, February 26th, March 26th, and April 30th
With music, message, and a chance to connect with different parish communities and social outreach partners, this is a place for you to explore your faith with others in a neutral environment, outside of a church. We hope that you are able to make a profound, spiritual connection with Jesus Christ while opening your heart to creating personal connections during Happy Hour or over a cup of coffee.

+ Dave & Lauren Moore
Though Dave can put on a great show, he’s not a performer. Dave lead’s worship from a heart that knows his own need for salvation. He’s not interested in fame or accolades, he’s interested in connecting to Christ in his own music and leading the listener into his prayer. Dave’s worship is free, organic, creative, and powerful, with a depth that moves even the hardest hearts. Dave is talented, to be sure, but his music is powerful because it’s coming from his own weakness before the Lord.
