contentsOak Cliff TX Chamberads



The blossoming community spirit and extraordinary amount of diversity emanating from Oak Cliff neighborhoods is an impressive feature not found in many places. This attribute is distinct in the area’s rich spiritual community, which is represented by an array of houses of worship. In fact, Tenth Street in Oak Cliff was at one time listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the country’s largest concentration of churches along one street. While that most likely does not ring true today, people from all walks of life are still sure to find a place of worship. Small fellowships and larger congregations sit side-by-side in Oak Cliff, many of which have been rooted in the community for more than a century.


The long-standing Catholic Diocese of Dallas has established five parishes in Oak Cliff, and the enduring Catholic Charities of Dallas maintains an integral presence in the community, operating near the Winnetka Heights neighborhood of north Oak Cliff. The community is also home to several churches, many of which are new or are undergoing expansion in Oak Cliff and serve the African American population.

The International Linguistics Center is located in Oak Cliff as well, offering training programs for missionaries and helping indigenous people create the written Word for their language. In addition, the Christ for the Nations Institute, an international, interdenominational educational organization, has been devoted to training and equipping students from around the world in East Oak Cliff for more than 30 years.
