Best in Dallas

All the things you thought Dallas didn't have

Prestonwood Baptist Church

Since I’ve never attended a service at Prestonwood Baptist Church, it would seem strange to post about it. But this church is not just a church, it’s somewhat of a phenomenon. When our daughter was married, Baptist relatives visiting from Florida had only one sight-seeing request, and that was to see Prestonwood. We took them, just to walk around while no services were taking place, and were amazed at what we saw. We have since attended weddings in their chapel (a beautiful, traditional place), and I have attended meetings and eaten lunch there on a number of occasions. This church is like a small city, with 2 gift shop/bookstores and a full restaurant (corporate-cafeteria-style) as well as a private school and full fitness facilities (probably not open to just anybody). The lobby has art and a series of stained glass windows, plus seating areas, a play area, and kiosks about various ministries. Quite a monument to what Big Baptist Bucks can build. (We refer to our church as being in the “shadow of the Baptidome” and when our staff goes to lunch there, we refer to it as eating at “our east campus.”) No disrespect intended – seriously – this church has impressive ministries in many areas and it’s a blessing to share the neighborhood. Located at Park Blvd. and Midway in Plano.

  1. I stand corrected – evidently sports and other activities are open to anyone.
