Vision 2020

Vision 2020

In order for us to fully embrace our mission, it is necessary to make a commitment regarding the type of church we are going to be. We believe that if First Presbyterian Church is going to "carry the gospel to Houston and the world," we need to make an intentional and significant shift in emphasis to being a "sending, missional, kingdom-focused church".

As a part of that shift, FPC leadership committed to planting ten new churches, equipping 100 ministry leaders, including church planters and missionaries, and raising $10 million for Vision 2020 initiatives. Since this bold vision was adopted, the church has positioned itself to fulfill the goals in several ways:

At the time of adoption of Vision 2020, we did not have any strategy, few resources, and little momentum to send disciples out to plant the gospel in the form of new church plants. What we had was prayer, will, and a prompting of the Holy Spirit. Now, God has given us a strategy and resources, and we hope with more prayer, vision-casting, and the Holy Spirit, and we can grow momentum toward becoming a church that plants churches.
