PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE
On December 3, 1939, the Rev. Thomas Sumners led St. John the Divine’s first worship service at River Oaks Elementary School. From that humble beginning, God has used our church to Change Lives for God in Christ in Houston and the world.
As we look forward to 2030 and imagine the possibilities for St. John the Divine to be a light to the city, brimming with new believers on a discipleship journey with Jesus that equips them take their faith into the world, we have an opportunity to prepare our campus to be a vital piece of ministry for St. John the Divine in 2030 and beyond.
As we discern God’s vision for SJD 2030 and into the next generation, we have an exciting opportunity to imagine new possibilities for our strategically located campus. We want to be bold, creative, and inclusive in considering how our facilities and location will reflect our call to be a “Light for the City” with more people gathering in Christ, growing together, and going forth for others.
We are excited to share the start of the Campus Master Plan with our parishioners. As SJD grows and looks to the future, we want to ensure that our facilities and grounds are as ready as we are to achieve SJD's vision for 2030. Please join us to learn more about how we got here and the process for developing the master plan, and to meet our architect partners, Merriman Holt Powell Architects.
