Earlier this year, Mercy Street brought on new Executive Director, Ricky Jimmerson who will continue to lead Mercy Street as the West Dallas mentoring and leadership ministry expands. Jimmerson joined the Mercy Street team with 19 years of experience working with inner-city children with the Kids Across America organization. Trey Hill will step out of his current CEO role and onto the Mercy Street Board of Directors to provide oversight, vision, and governance. Day to day leadership will be placed on Jimmerson's shoulders, with full confidence from Hill and the Mercy Street leadership team. "We have a very capable leader in Ricky, and a far more capable operator than I am," said Hill. "His strategic programming background coupled with his heart for shepherding people in the West Dallas community will allow Mercy Street to grow in new ways."
Over 14 years of ministry, Mercy Street has created 1,424 one-on-one mentoring partnerships and currently has 223 people serving as mentors. There are also 849 West Dallas students participating in various sports activities provided by Mercy Street programs.
Mercy Street's long-term partnership with Park Cities Presbyterian has created a natural progression for Hill. "PCPC is very grateful to have Trey Hill, who has long been a part of the PCPC family and a key ministry partner through Mercy Street, now leading our urban missions. We look forward to Trey's visionary leadership as we anticipate even greater impact for the good of the city," said Jeff Barber, Executive Director of Park Cities Presbyterian Church.
Trey Hill has met with the leadership at both Mercy Street and Park Cities Presbyterian Church to craft a thoughtful transition plan over the next nine months. Beginning in November, Hill will start his new role at PCPC while spending most his time at Mercy Street, then will gradually spend more time at PCPC as Mercy Street's leadership is fully shifted to the new Executive Director. Hill will be overseeing the completion of the Mercy Street Sports Complex and providing direction for the expansion of Mercy Street to other neighborhoods through strategic partners during the transition.
Mercy Street aims to be used by God to spark Christ-honoring community restoration by engaging in mutually-transforming relationships with the future leaders of West Dallas. We are committed to community transformation, committed relationships, and catalytic leadership development.
