“Christian brotherhood is not an ideal which we must realize; it is rather a reality created by God in Christ in which we may participate.”

These words from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Life Together exemplify our goal for the community of Criswell Housing. We believe Christian community is neither a perfect ideal for which to strive, nor simply a place to sleep. Rather, it is an environment in which we actively participate in our faith by growing personally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually in order to be a light to our city and culture.



Residents live in local apartment style housing in downtown Dallas. Currently, Criswell partners with Dallas Theological Seminary and Vue Live Oak Apartments, located just two blocks from the Criswell campus. Apartments are fully furnished with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, where 2-4 residents live together.


Missional Living

Each semester residents participate in community outreaches with local ministries and churches. Past outreaches include partnering with Dallas Life, Kids for Christ, J. W. Ray Elementary School, Lake June Baptist Church, First Baptist Church, and Criswell alumni.
