Director of Church Development / North Texas Conference
Dr. Ross is an ICF Certified Coach and is the Director for the Center for New Church Development and Congregational Transformation for the the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Dr. Ross leads the conference's work in planting and transforming congregations in the North Texas area. Previously, Dr. Ross served as the founding pastor of Christ's Foundry United Methodist Mission in Dallas, Texas. Having never pastored a church or been a part of a Spanish-language congregation, Dr. Ross moved into the north Love Field neighborhood in 2002 and began knocking on doors. Today, Christ's Foundry is the largest Spanish-language United Methodist congregation west of the Mississippi River, operating in a $2.5 million facility that was completely debt-free in 2012. Christ's Foundry serves both as a center for worship as well as a center for social services, touching over 3000 lives a year in a high-density, immigrant community with a per-capita income 2/5 the national average.
