Our Story

In 2015, Pastor Shanté, along with three other risk takers (Jerry White, Bill Madsen, & Alex (Shanté's bonus baby, who was only 8yrs old at the time) had an idea to create a unique experience that would reach those who were interested in Christ, but not necessarily church.

Thanks to the generosity of celebrity chef, Sharon VanMeter (owner/founder of 3015@Trinity Groves), a new home was given to this idea—called Bibles & Biscuits—a place to feed your body and your soul. In August of 2015, one hundred people gathered for the first Bibles & Biscuits experience. Some came out of curiosity, others because they needed a new faith community, and some because they were invited to eat really good biscuits and gravy. The very first Sunday set the course for which we are on today. On that morning, hundreds of dollars of school supplies were collected and given to the Wesley Rankin Community Center, their neighbors in West Dallas. For a year, this group studied, worship, sang, served and grew together. Their vision for serving as the hands and feet of Christ to the La Bajada West Dallas neighborhood grew as well.

 

Our Mission

Say Amen Somebody!

On Easter of 2016, Bibles & Biscuits changed its name and from it was birthed LIFT Community Church®. We believe that we are much more than a local church. We are a movement that welcomes ALL people to live a life of limitless possibilities in Christ.

Our mission is to make a long-lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world by loving, learning and leading.

We value being a...

Loving Community- We love by showing that God’s Love extends to all people!

Learning Community- We learn by Inspiring one another to further our purpose in God’s story.

Leading Community- We lead as those who are Forgiven Followers of Christ who seek to Transform the world.

Our Pastor

Pastor Shanté Buckley
Rev. Shanté Buckley, B.S., M.Div.
LIFT Community Church®, Lead Pastor

Hailing from St. Louis, MO, Pastor Shanté attended Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, LA before receiving her Master's of Divinity from Oral Roberts University. She served for eleven years as the Pastor of Contemporary Worship at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in Dallas, TX.

As a Church Planter and Spiritual Entrepreneur, she has sought to make the local church relevant and necessary in a rapidly growing diverse modern setting. Her giftedness as a dynamic storyteller and humorist reaches audiences from all walks of life despite their differences in race, gender, age, socioeconomic status, criminal records, addictive past or political positions. It's her dream to create multiple venues like LIFT Church™, which is a place where no one "clutches their pearls" when you walk through the door.

If you were to ask Pastor Shanté to tell you something about herself, she would say that she's a deeply devoted Follower of Jesus (she wasn't always); a loving Bonus Mom; a passionate shoeologist, and future guest on Oprah's SuperSoul Sunday.
