At the beginning of 1998 a group of people from San Juan Fellowship and several other churches in the Dallas Northeast District began asking, "How can we work together so that San Juan Fellowship can have a bigger impact in the lives of people in their neighborhood?" That small gathering of friends was the genesis of Amigos Days. By June of that year, we teamed up with People Helping People, a division of the Department of Housing of the City of Dallas, and members of 10 churches began repairing homes in East Dallas.
The scope of the vision also expanded to include doing some renovation work on the second floor of the Warren Church Building and the Educational Building at Brandon Ave. Momentum for Amigos Days continued to build in 2001 as eight urban churches (Brandon Ave. UMC, Elmwood UMC, Munger Place UMC, Oak Cliff UMC, San Juan Fellowship, Tyler St. UMC, Urban Park Mission, and Warren UMC) rose to the challenge of getting more directly involved in their neighborhoods. More than 1,000 Amigos from 44 United Methodist Churches restored homes, renovated churches, and forged new relationships among people from many cultural and economic backgrounds.
