It is the goal of South Texas District Association to provide the tools and resources in support of member churches, to develop, thrive, and grow. To ensure that every church effectively participates in Evangelism, Foreign mission, Christian education, and Benevolence.
It is the purpose of this association to work in cooperation with its member churches to promote Evangelism, Foreign mission, Christian education, and Benevolence. We further endeavor to support our member constituencies in church growth and development through training and communications.
As association is…. Composed of pastors and delegates from churches occupying a particular district. Its purpose is two-fold- the promotion of the welfare of the churches connected with it, and the spread of the Gospel, especially through the region occupied by it. The association is purely voluntary body; no church is compelled to join it. It has no ecclesiastical authority.
South Texas District Association is made up of a group of churches within the state and local perimeter of the city. Its membership is led by a pastor of the church on a volunteer basis. However, upon joining, the pastor agrees to support the district in membership and financial support , as well as the established guidelines of its auxiliaries and the benevolent agencies. It is governed by an Executive Board of Officers.
