Organization: Shawnee Trail Church of Christ
About the Organization: History of Shawnee Trail:

In 2002, two families met in a Frisco home with a desire to plant a vibrant church that made a difference in its community. Almost 20 years later, Shawnee Trail carries on those pioneering disciples’ vision of what this church should be, and what God wants us to be – a vibrant church that is growing and reaching people with the message of Jesus Christ. Now with a membership over 600, Shawnee Trail is moving into a new era of growing God’s Kingdom and reaching the lost by becoming a church that plants churches. We believe the 1st Century church grew because followers of Jesus planted churches all over the Roman World. In the 21st Century, we believe the church will grow the same way. Our vision is to establish partner churches in North Texas, beginning with the town of Celina. 

Mission Statement:

Shawnee Trail exists to transform lives in Collin and Denton Counties through relationships with each other and Jesus Christ. Our mission is to make disciples who make disciples through the transforming power of the Gospel.
