The Church of the Damascus Road (CoDR) is a sparate ministry and worshipping community within the Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod of the ELCA. Our Messiah community is proud to be a partner in mission with this gospel-centered ministry. Through Bible-based AA classes, Bible Studies, worship services, and their Christian Human Development Center, CoDR  is on a mission to carry the message and love of Jesus Christ to those incarcerated in the Prison System in the state of Texas and those who are coping with the affliction of addiction.
