“From planting successful churches in North Texas to training hundreds of ministers, to supporting numerous local outreach programs and missionary efforts spanning the globe, after 75 years, the Preston Road Church of Christ continues to build upon its rich legacy of advancing God’s purposes by helping others,” stated Dan Branch, one of the church’s elders. “It’s been an honor to serve both the Dallas community and this church for many years.”
