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 enhance 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 guest speaker. Dr. and Mrs. W. C. (Cyrus and Nina) Houston, faithful church members, set up a perpetual fund to be used to secure fine preachers of any denomination to hold an annual Preaching Mission.
This past year Rev Junius Dotson, General Secretary of Discipleship and author of Soul Reset, preached and helped us better understand some of the Way Forward discussion. You can watch his sermon here.
Houston Preaching Mission for 2020 will to take place in the fall. Look for more details this summer. You may find Rev Dotson's book here, Soul Reset
