Houston Preaching Mission

“A Vision TO SPREAD GOD’S WORD” - “The highest ideals of the Christian faith”

The Houston Mission was envisioned in 1948 under the guidance of Dr. and Mrs. William Cyrus and Nina Houston, faithful leaders in Central United Methodist Church.  Their enduring vision is to Outside by Danielenhance the lives of the people of Central and our Concord community by introducing them to the “highest ideals of the Christian faith.”  Along with their pastor, Dr. Frank Jordan, the goal was “Great biblical preaching should be continued with a flourish.”

 In 1949 the first Houston Preaching Mission was held with Dr. David Maclennan of Canada as the guest speaker. Dr. and Mrs. WC (Cyrus and Nina) Houston, faithful church members, set up a perpetual fund to be used to secure fine preachers of any denomination hold and annual preaching mission.
