Rooted in faith for over 50 years, United Methodists in the Houston area have tilled the dormant fields of our community and sowed the seed of Jesus Christ.
Nourished by a bountiful harvest, we call upon all United Methodists in the Texas Annual Conference to pray for plenty and help gather the grain of faith as we break ground to build 100 new churches in 10 years.
New churches are needed in every district of the Texas Annual Conference to spread God’s Word among fresh furrows. “From the Ground Up” is a ministry of United Methodists to construct new churches and create thriving congregations among all ethnic groups to meet this burgeoning need.
When you become a shareholder, your investment enables the good news of the Gospel to rain on those who have endured a spiritual drought, yielding future generations and fruits of faith in Jesus Christ.
Plant the Seed
For $100, you can purchase one share that will foster new churches from the ground up. Your “share” can also be divided into two $50 installments over the course of the year.
Funds generated from these shares will be invested in training and coaching new church leaders, providing salary support for new church pastors and beginning ministry in these new locations.
Each pastor of a new congregation will also attend the New Church Leadership Institute, a year-long educational experience to provide the skills these pastors need to build healthy, growing churches.
For established congregations, the Texas Annual Conference is nurturing a major transformation to ensure each church thrives and flourishes by improving ministries, furthering their impact on the community and providing outreach programs.
Over 200 existing churches will receive training, support and their own unique ministry plans.
