Joe and Lindsey Anderson serve in Dallas, Texas, an area with many under-resourced urban communities. This area is in desperate need of long-term, community-based missionaries.
After seeing the need for community-based missionaries in their Dallas neighborhood, the Andersons began serving children, teens, and adults through a number of ministries in under-resourced urban communities. Their main goal is to produce a “gospel eco-system” through partnerships within the community.
The Andersons direct their Kids for Christ, Teens for Christ, and Homemakers for Christ ministries in inner city Dallas. Their strategy is to draw children into kids’ clubs that meet in apartment complexes and other community centers to encourage and mentor them throughout their lives with kids, teens, adults, and senior outreaches, neighborhood transformational ministry, and local church partnership and planting.
These ministries also seek to train leaders to carry on the work in communities throughout the Dallas area. Site leaders take a relational approach to ministry, which has allowed them to walk through times of crisis with the young people who have been growing through the team’s ministries. Many of these leaders are products of the Andersons' ministries.
Joe and Lindsey also serve as area coordinators for the state of Texas. InFaith field staff members under the Andersons’ care serve in refugee ministry; police, military and hospital chaplaincies; and church, camp, and inner city ministry.
The Andersons have served as InFaith field staff since 2005.
Joe has a B.A. from Criswell Bible College, an M.A. in Clinical Christian Counseling from Cornerstone University, and an M.A. in Christian Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary. He enjoys serving on the local Little League Board, and coaches his sons' baseball team. He is also a Den leader for his son's Cub Scouts Pack, leading over twenty boys and their parents through character and leader development and helpful community service. The Andersons have four children.
Joe and Lindsey grew up in the ministries they are now leading with InFaith. They really enjoy the long-term committed relationships of residents and ministry partners living in their InFaith ministry communities. One of the communities where they lead, Roseland Homes, has been an InFaith ministry site for over thirty years and continues to be a place of genuine, transformational, exciting, challenging, and growing ministry. Joe and Lindsey see opportunities for outreach and discipleship everywhere in their neighborhood, community, city, metroplex, and state.
