About Mission Central

Mission Central was founded in 1996 when the caring members and staff of First United Methodist Church of Hurst, Texas, were drawn to address the growing needs of families who were at the poverty level in their community. As the needs became greater, other churches and organizations wanted to take part in our work in Hurst, Euless and Bedford. To facilitate work among these many groups, Mission Central became an independent non-profit organization in 2003. Since then, the organization has grown and evolved, and now serves thousands of our neighbors in the Mid-Cities each year. For more information on Mission Central, please visit
